If you need a good book be sure to pick up one of the books in the women's murder club series. These books get you hooked from the beginning. The plot is extremely interesting and fairly complex. The main character of this book is Lindsey Boxer, who is a detective for the San Francisco Police Department. She solves crimes with the help of her friends. Her best friend Claire is a medical examiner. Her other friends are CIndy, who is a reporter for The Chronicle, and Jill who is an assistant district attourney. Later in the series she also becomes friends with Yuki who is a district attourney. James Patterson has written over a dozen best sellers. I have read many mystery books, and these books are by far the best. If you already like a different series of James Patterson, such as Alex Cross, I suggest that you try Women's Murder Club. There are eight books in this series and there will be more to come. I highly suggest that you pick up one of these books.
