The most personal

A young mother and her infant child are ruthlessly gunned down while returning to their car in the garage of a shopping mall. There are no witnesses, and Detective Lindsay Boxer is left with only one shred of evidence: a cryptic message scrawled across the windshield in bloodred lipstick.

The most dangerous

The same night, the wife of A-list actor Marcus Dowling is woken by a cat burglar who is about to steal millions of dollars' worth of precious jewels. In just seconds there is a nearly empty safe, a lifeless body, and another mystery that throws San Francisco into hysteria.

The most exciting Women's Murder Club novel ever

Lindsay spends every waking hour working with her partner, Rich--and her desire for him threatens to tear apart both her engagement and the Women's Murder Club. Before Lindsay and her friends can piece together either case, one of the killers forces Lindsay to put her own life on the line--but is it enough to save the city? With unparalleled danger and explosive action, The 9th Judgment is James Patterson at his compelling, unstoppable best!

    Another fine piece of journalism by James Patterson. Easy to read, real page turner. Once you start it, you will not want to put it down.

    Nice to see the continuation and growth of the characters. Always enjoy the interaction of the Women's club characters both on professional and personal levels.

    The early books written by James Patterson were his best work. While the new stories are entertaining, they lack detail and depths.

    Per Usual, James Patterson has spun another suspense filled story packed with action, romance and who done it. He was born to entertain and it shows in every word!!

    This book is one of 9 in the series... If you haven't read the first 8 you will be lost and think this book is boring. If your going to start reading James Patterson start from the beginning people. First impression is everything and if you start in the right place he will get you hooked!! This was a great book and I can't wait for the next one... Nice twist the ending was weird.
