In James Patterson’s latest blockbuster, the four women of the unconventional Women’s Murder Club pursue a killer whose deranged M.O. has struck terror into the heart of the city.
When an eleven-year-old girl is shot on the steps of a San Francisco church, hard-as-nails Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer calls a meeting of the Women’s Murder Club. Together with ambitious assistant D.A. Jill Bernhardt, savvy medical examiner Claire Washburn and Cindy Thomas, a bright young reporter for the Chronicle, Boxer tracks the mystifying killer to a local hate group. But this murder is no one-shot accident. Lindsay’s gut tells her it’s linked to the death of an elderly widow on the other side of town. But how?
The murder of an officer…and then the chief of police leads Lindsay and the girls to a new kind of criminal—a serial killer who’s slaughtering anyone with a connection to the police force. Now the race is on to catch this unusually twisted murderer before he strikes again. Could Lindsay and her fellow clubmates be next on the demented killer’s hit list?

As always James Patterson delivers a blockbuster that is hard to put down. I love his writing, he keeps you anxious from one page to the next. This book is a great buy!!!!!!!!!
This book was good, although not anywhere close to as good as Patterson's Alex Cross books.
Can't wait for the next one.
"The book itself was great,but I knew who the villian was as soon as the character was introduced.It was a great book with the exeption of how easy it was to figure out who the villian was."
A wonderful follow up to 1st to Die. Read 1st to die first, then 2nd chance. It is a great series, hopefully to continue. I normally do not read entire books in a short period, but I finished this one in two days. This was tough to put down, and couldn't wait to see what happened next! This is Patterson at his best. It started off a little slow, but once things got rolling, it really picks up. A must have for any Patterson fan.
