Book 33- The 9th Judgment

The 9th Judgment is the ninth book in the Women's Murder Club series written by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro.

A cat burglar is stealing jewelry from the rich and famous and during a heist, a famous actress is killed, looking like the burglar shot her- but is that true?

Meanwhile, a sicko serial killer is on the loose, killing innocent women AND children. Lindsey Boxer is working both cases, burning the candle at both ends trying to find the killers. Of course, the rest of the woman are there: Clare the ME who has to take care of the carnage, Yuki the attorney who plays a minor role in this novel, and Cindy, the reporter who is also in love with Lindsay's partner Rich.

Personal twists and turns in the lives of the ladies as well as trying to catch a killer and a burglar all wrap together in this typical Patterson beach read mystery.

It's Patterson, so it's not great literature, but it's a fast read, bit print, small words, and a quick story. If you can over look the choppy short dialogue and the poor quality character development, then by all means, take this out for a spin, for there's nothing wrong with a few hours of mindlessness!
