The 9th Judgment

By James Patterson, Maxine Paetro (Mass Market, 2012)
During an intimate dinner party, a cat burglar breaks into the home of A-list actor Marcus Dowling. When his wife walks in on the thief, the situation quickly teeters out of control, leaving an empty safe and a lifeless body.

The same night, a woman and her infant child are ruthlessly gunned down in an abandoned garage. The killer hasn't left a shred of evidence, except for a foreboding and cryptic message: WCF, the letters written in blood-red letters.

With two deranged killers on the loose Detective Lindsay Boxer calls on the Women's Murder Club to help her stop the insane killers. But someone is leaking information to the press--details that only those on the inside could know. As allegations fly that Lindsay is the source, she has to wonder--how much she can trust her closest friends?

  • FANS LOVE THE WOMEN'S MURDER CLUB

  • "Those who haven't read any of the novels in the Women's Murder Club series are cheating themselves." (BookReporter.com).

  • "I can't believe how good Patterson is, whether he's doing a Washington police yarn or traveling a different road with a female narrator.  He is always on the mark.  I have never begun a Patterson book and been able to put it down." (USA Today).

  • "Patterson and Paetro are at their best here, weaving a number of plots together to create a novel that dips and flows across genre lines.... A series that shows no signs of fatigue or flagging." (BookReporter.com on The 5th Horseman).
