The 8th Confession

The 8th Confession is the latest book in the Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. From the inside cover.~

APPEARANCES CAN BE DECEIVING

As San Francisco’s most glamorous millionaires mingle at the party of the year, someone is watching-waiting for a chance to take vengeance on Isa and Ethan Bailey, the city’s most celebrated couple. Finally, the killer pinpoints the ideal moment, and it’s the perfect murder. Not a trace of evidence is left behind in their glamorous home.

BUT THE TRUTH CAN BE DEADLY-

As Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the high-profile murder, someone else is found brutally executed-a preacher with a message of hope for the homeless. His death nearly falls through the cracks, but when reporter Cindy Thomas hears about it, she knows the story could be huge. Probing deeper into the victim’s history, she discovers he may not have been quite as saintly as everyone thought.

LET THE CONFESSIONS BEGIN.

As the hunt for two criminals test the limits of the Women’s Murder Club, Lindsay sees sparks fly between Cindy and Lindsay’s partner, Detective Rich Conklin. The Women’s Murder Club now faces its toughest challenge: will love destroy all that four friends have built? The exhilarating new chapter in the Women’s Murder Club series, The 8th Confession serves up a double dose of speed-charged twists and shocking revelations as only James Patterson can. And remember, this is the only Murder Club episode this year.

Patterson and Paetro give the reader another winner in the Women’s Murder Club series with The 8th Confession. There are two great mysteries for Lindsay and her friends to solve, as well as a bit of romance between Lindsay and Joe and Cindy and Rich, Lindsay’s partner. You also see the relationship between the members of the Women’s Murder Club grow in the latest book.

I really enjoyed The 8th Confession and look forward to more books in the Women’s Murder Club series in the future.

Hey Liza, great post on the 8th book. I haven't picked it up yet, but I am gonna wait until it gets to paperback. Did you ever watch the tv series on it. I am so unhappy that it is not on anymore.

Peace and love,
Paula R.

I've only read it because I picked it up at the library. Only hardbacks I buy for the most part are JD Robb's In Death series.

I miss the series too. I really wish ABC had given it a better chance. They put all these stupid reality shows on and get rid of a really great drama. At least Castle comes back soon. It's as good as the Women's Murder Club.

I have only seen Castle a couple of times. They love it in the jungle, and I tried it. I just didn't have a chance to watch it regularly. Do they have reruns leading up to the new season?

Peace and love,
Paula R.

Castle is on Monday night at 9:00(central). I think they are showing it each week leading up to the 2nd season premier. ABC is even putting out a book by Richard Castle to promote the show. I think the book comes out either at the end of August or September.

Thanks, I will keep that in mind...actually, I am going to put it on my calendar in my phone so that an alarm goes off. I will remember then. I remember seeing something about a book by Richard Castle on Amazon. I will definitely check it out.

Peace and love,

I never read this, but was it a tv series at one time? It seems like it was, and it sounded really good, but I bet it's way better as a book series.

It was a tv series last year, and it was very well done. I love the books, but really wish Patterson would put out more than 1 a year in this series.
