PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC 1st to Die (Women's Murder Club, #1) James Patterson bestselling author of the Alex Cross novels Along Came a Spider Kiss the Girls and Pop Goes the Weasel offers the first of a new series dubbed The Women s Murder Club featuring a four woman team that occasionally works outside the system None of the gritty darkness or frenzied action is lost in st to Die although the female protagonists offer an even deeper emotional context to this suspense thriller .
Inspector Lindsay Boxer of the San Francisco Police Department suddenly finds herself in the middle of two horrifying situations The first is that she s just learned she has an often fatal blood disease The second is a double homicide case she is now heading up that involves the murder of newlyweds on their wedding night Burdened with Chris Raleigh a new partner reassigned from the mayor s office Lindsay finds that she has too much to deal with and turns to her best friend Claire the head ME on the case Claire offers helpful advice and human friendly contact amid a job filled with violence cruelty and fear .
Soon a fledgling newspaper reporter Cindy makes contact with Lindsay looking for a career making story Although Lindsay can t officially comment on the case the two women form a rapport and Cindy joins Lindsay and Claire for their weekly meeting When a second pair of newlyweds is murdered and later a third the investigation leads to a prominent crime writer Nicholas Jenks who has a history of spousal abuse and a predilection for kinky dangerous sex games With the help of an understanding assistant D A Jill Bernhardt Lindsay tries to make a case against Jenks who even had an affair with one of the slain women Eventually Jill joins the Murder Club and the four ladies share private interdepartmental information in an effort to track and stop the killer before he strikes again .
The major subplot Lindsay s facing up to her illness even while she learns to fall in love again carefully compensates for the novel s coarse scenes of brutality Lindsay Boxer is t merely an obsessed cop trailing a maniac she s also a terrified woman confronting the onslaught of disease The story lines balance out to show us the true mettle of someone who puts the safety of others before her own .
Again Patterson s skill for producing furiously paced fiction are evident as the novel breezes by rapidly The short chapters keep the narrative leaping with increasingly taut plot elements but there s an emotional commitment that makes our protagonist even more amiable and involving st to Die is a novel that works as an intense series of character portraits that will leave the reader touched and delighted .
