The 9th Judgment by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

Genre: Suspense, Thriller

Two gruesome crimes occur on the very same day sending the San Francisco Police Department into a total frenzy. Led by Sergeant Lindsay Boxer, the police and the Women’s Murder Club try to track down these evil criminals.

First, famous actor Marcus Dowling’s wife walks in on a cat burglar attempting to run off with her expensive jewelry. Similar burglaries have been occurring all over town to all the rich citizens, but this time, the crime takes a horrible turn when Dowling’s wife is brutally murdered in their own home.

At the same time, a woman and her infant child are cruelly executed leaving behind no clues except for the letters WCF in blood red lipstick. When similar murders occur, the police know they have a serial killer on their hands. Dubbed “The Lipstick Killer”, Lindsay sets out to stop the murderer before he takes even one more life, but she risks her own life in the process. This time, it gets very personal.

Another thrilling and suspenseful installment to the Women’s Murder club series. I truly find these books to get better and better. It was one of those “edge-of-your-seat” type of books that you can’t put down. I know I just wanted to keep reading and reading. I can’t wait for the tenth book to be released, but that’s probably a year away.

I’m giving this one 5 kitties, along with my Socrates’ Great Book Alert Award.

*Side note: I had already completed the WMC Reading Challenge, but since this one was released after I made my list, I’m tossing it in too. Now, I’m all caught up on this series until the next one comes out.
