Book Review-10th Anniversary James Patterson
For every secret
Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals--but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.
For every lie
At the same time, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano is prosecuting the biggest case of her life--a woman who has been accused of murdering her husband in front of her two young children. Yuki's career rests on a guilty verdict, so when Lindsay finds evidence that could save the defendant, she is forced to choose. Should she trust her best friend or follow her instinct?
There's a different way to die
Lindsay's every move is watched by her new boss, Lieutenant Jackson Brady, and when the pressure to find the baby begins interfering with her new marriage to Joe, she wonders if she'll ever be able to start a family. With James Patterson's white-hot speed and unquenchable action, 10th Anniversary is the most deliciously chilling Women's Murder Club book ever
I have always been a James Patterson fan, which is saying a lot, as I usually do not read mysteries at all. You can probably tell from my lack of reviews each month on our mystery posts. His books are easy to read, filled with short chapters and not to many details to bog down my mind. 10th anniversary didn't fail to entertain me , I have always enjoyed the Lindsey Boxer stories and was thrilled that she and Joe finally tied the knot. As usual in James Patterson's books, several stories are taking place over the course of the book. This one mostly dealt with a teenager who misplaces her newborn, a series of drugged rapes and a murder trial for Yuki.
James Patterson's stand alone books are some of my favorites, and several have been written with Maxine Paetro. Maybe this is why I enjoy James Patterson so much. It is refreshing to read a book, even one in a series, that can be read without having to read all of the preceding books. I can promise a twist at the end..always..with James Patterson. But they end, and you can go on without having to wonder what happens next...until the next one comes along.
