11th Hour by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro {Book Review}

The 11th book in the Women’s Murder Club series.

I do love the idea the authors use the number system in their titles, it makes it easier to remember the order of the books. The titles all have a meaning to the plots in the book, so each one is specifically connected to something in the book.

The book starts off with some big news from the previous book, but as usual, the criminals of San Fransisco are there to steal the limelight away.

Plot:

Lindsay Boxer is pregnant!

Her fantastic news isn’t slowing her job down though. When a murder weapon from a crime scene is linking to four untouchable criminals in San Fransisco, the bigger mystery is finding out it was taken from her own department’s evidence locker. The killer could be someone close to home.

She’s also called to investigate a bizarre crime scene where two bodiless heads have been displayed in the garden of a famous actor. When another head is dug up, Lindsay worries about how many more they will find.

While dealing with two important cases, she becomes the target of a reporter’s mission to display Lindsay’s personal life to the public – and there’s no one she can turn to.

Thoughts:

There was a good mystery going with the two separate cases running alongside each other.

The first crime was fascinating as there was much speculation about who is behind it and the second-guessing about a character you’d be familiar with if you’ve been following the series from the beginning.

The second crime was also intriguing and slightly more gruesome as the scenes described are not your typical ones you hear about often. As more discoveries are made, you’re really left wondering what the heck is going on.

Even though the series is so far along, the character development is still lacking.

The book is packed with new drama, both around crimes as well as the personal lives of the characters. it also had a better balance with the crimes and the personal lives and neither overshadowed the other, which is a relief compared to the previous few books.

As usual, Lindsay’s personal life is rattled with new drama but it still isn’t the most interesting part of the book.

The conclusion of the book was interesting with everything pieced together.

Overview:

It wasn’t one of the better books in the series, but good enough for a James Patterson novel.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 4.07 on GoodReads. I gave it a 4.
