Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried…There’s no stopping his imagination.” New York Times Book Review
“A solid thriller.” Daily Telegraph (Australia)
“Another page-turner from the masters of the very short chapter with a surprise twist. In a word: thrilling.” Herald Sun (Australia)
“From the start, Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club series has felt like high-concept TV with a smart edge, featuring an appealing and reliable cast of four female crime busters who race along byzantine plot lines humming with blood and sex, romance and heartbreak. But Patterson is an author who will detonate readers’ presumptions for the sake of story, and in the series’ third installment, the prolific author, working with frequent collaborator Gross, defies expectations in a shocking way. Readers will love him for it…There’s a calculated feel to all that happens, but clever manipulation of an audience serves Patterson as well as it served Hitchcock: his fans will only clamor for more.” Publishers Weekly
“Carolyn McCormick’s performance strikes the right balance of professionalism and horror in Boxer’s first-person account. McCormick portrays the detective as both detached investigator and sensitive woman, those qualities fighting for dominance in each area of her life. Other characters also receive careful attention, with a light touch of regional accent here and there to polish their personalities. Occasional muted sound effects and musical interludes enhance the performance.” AudioFile
“James Patterson has evolved and refined a medium of his own: the crime thriller that moves faster than a book but not quite as fast as an hour of television. Does it keep you reading? I found I couldn’t stop, in an obsessive-compulsive way.” Sydney Morning Herald
