Series Sunday: 21st Birthday

(Women's Murder Club #21) 

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.

My Series Sunday pick is 21st Birthday, obviously the 21st book in the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. Never make a promise you can't keep! Sergeant Lindsay Boxer vows to protect a 20-year-old victim long enough to see her 21st birthday. 

"We have heard it too many times. It's referred to as TODDI. That's an acronym for the words, 'the other dude did it.'" ~ 82%

A distraught mother is convinced her daughter and granddaughter are missing and possibly dead, the husband being responsible. She pleads with Chronicle News reporter Cindy Thomas to investigate. When the bodies are found, Medical Examiner Claire Washburn has different theories. ADA Yuki Castellano paints the husband as a textbook domestic offender. But why are there copycat killings?

Great mystery when there is means, motive and opportunity. 21st Birthday reminds me of the earlier WMC novels. Unlike recent books, it gives every woman a perspective and "story time." Back to the good old basics! Bookhearts keeping up with this series, do not miss this one!
