Detective Lindsay Boxer's investigation into the disappearance of three teachers escalates from missing persons to murder in this "shocking" Women's Murder Club thriller (Lisa Gardner, #1 NYT bestselling author).

For a trio of colleagues, an innocent night out after class ends in a deadly torture session. They vanish without a clue -- until a body turns up. With the safety of San Francisco's entire school system at stake, Lindsay has never been under more pressure. As the chief of police and the press clamor for an arrest in the "school night" case, Lindsay turns to her best friend, investigative journalist Cindy Thomas. Together, Lindsay and Cindy take a new approach to the case, and unexpected facts about the victims leave them stunned.

While Lindsay is engrossed in her investigation, her husband Joe meets an Eastern European woman who claims to have seen a notorious war criminal -- long presumed dead -- from her home country. Before Lindsay can verify the woman's statement, Joe's mystery informant joins the ranks of the missing women. Lindsay, Joe, and the entire Women's Murder Club must pull together to protect their city and one another -- not from a ghost, but from a true monster.

I'm only 1/2 way through this book, but what's bothering me is that at the end of the previous book (18th Suspect) Lindsay came down with a medical issue and a key figure (won't spoil it for those who haven't read it yet) was relieved of duty (or suspended). No mention of either event in this book, so it's lost it's continuity.

A good read. Unfortunate that so much of what was written about the ethnic cleansing that went on in that part of the world is true. Not so far fetched that some of the monsters made it to North America. Probably better that Sgt Boxer and FBI hubby handled this within the confines of the law enforcement community.

This was a pretty dark book for the Women’s Murder Club. Usually they are a little lighter. The story starts off five years ago when Lindsay and Joe are newlyweds and works up to the present. Lindsay and Joe are working on two different investigations until they realize the two are connected and start working it together. The women in the Women’s Murder Club don’t make much of an appearance. It centres on Lindsay and Joe.

James Pattersons other books are violent. The women’s murder club books have been a relief from that, until this book. There is very little of the women working together in this one. It is more of James Pattersons violence of his other books. 2 stars for this one.

If you are triggered by sexual assault and/or torture, be prepared. This one is dark.

Why, in this book, are Lindsay and Joe suddenly childless?

I gave up on Patterson books years ago since he wasn't writing them anymore. They just were getting worse & worse, bit I just couldn't put this one down! I read it in 2 short days, I couldn't put it down. The epilogue wasn't that exciting or surprising, but the rest of the book was great!! I highly recommend!
