Series: Book 9 of Women's Murder Club
The most dangerous
The same night, the wife of A-list actor Marcus Dowling is woken by a cat burglar who is about to steal millions of dollars' worth of precious jewels. In just seconds there is a nearly empty safe, a lifeless body, and another mystery that throws San Francisco into hysteria.
The most exciting Women's Murder Club novel ever
Lindsay spends every waking hour working with her partner, Rich--and her desire for him threatens to tear apart both her engagement and the Women's Murder Club. Before Lindsay and her friends can piece together either case, one of the killers forces Lindsay to put her own life on the line--but is it enough to save the city?
The Good: The 9th Judgment was definitely twisted, with the execution-style killing of infants. There were a few very good, oh-no moments, especially towards the end of the book. An easy read in typical James Patterson style, short, quick and to the point.
The Bad: The whole Lindsay coming to terms with her relationship with Joe and Rich's relationship with Cindy is pretty ridiculous. She's obviously certain of her love for Joe. It just makes no sense that she would ever begrudge Rich and Cindy having a relationship of their own.
