<b>10th Anniversary by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro</b> is the 10th book in “The Women’s Murder Club” mystery series. Publisher: Little, Brown and Company, May 2011
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 teenage girl is badly injured and left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminal—but 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.
Lindsay and Joe finally married and when she returns to the office, she gets involved in a teenager and her missing baby and later trying to right a wrong. This was a good read where deception and secrets run throughout this fast-paced, drama-filled and quick story. One of the things I like about James Patterson’s book are the very short chapters.
