Series Sunday: 16th Seduction

(Women's Murder Club #16) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

"Can you describe the cement mixer?" ~ pg. 236

My Series Sunday pick is 16th Seduction, obviously the 16th book in the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. What an explosive case...literally! Before Sergeant Lindsay Boxer has time to process her husband's double life, they are hit with an explosion. A huge science museum is blown up killing twenty-five citizens and injuring lots more, including shady hubby Joe. What seems like an open-and-shut case is anything but. Lindsay's reputation and career is undermined by a clever criminal determined to make a fool of the San Francisco Police Department.

"I would be fired, made an example of, humiliated, and I would likely never have a job in law enforcement again. The end." ~ pg. 272

Thank goodness this series is still jumping. Around this time, a series wears on me and gets old but Patterson & Paetro are keeping a chick engaged. The main characters are still interesting and complex as ever. The mysteries are not repetitive nor easy to solve; although, the secondary mystery in 16th Seduction seemed kind of thrown in for filler. I could have done without the ass-poker serial killer. But otherwise, it was worth carrying around this hardcover to read around the office.

As always, I highly suggest reading this series in order so you aren't spoiled with the personal story lines of the characters (like WTF is going on with Joe?!). If you are not yet familiar with this series, start it and join my Keeping Up with Patterson reading challenge.
