Reviews 16th Seduction (Women's Murder Club #16)

  • Matt
    I'll give it the 3.5 star bump-upAnother piece that shows that Patterson knows how to choose some of his co-authors to produce entertaining writing. Working alongside Maxine Paetro to craft sixteen novels in the Women's Murder Club, Patterson has been able to present high-impact writing peppered with some interesting legal and criminal angles. The world is beset with a new terrorist organisation, loosely called GAR, the Great Antiestablishment Re...

    The last book that I reviewed by James Patterson, The Black Book, I commented on how it was one of his best books. However, this one is one of his less stellar ones. I read a lot by Patterson, but I must admit that his Women’s Murder Club series is probably my least favorite, and this entry didn’t help that cause.Lindsay Boxer, San Francisco Police detective, is currently separated from her husband, Joe, following his last assignment for the ...

    Detective Lindsay Boxer was enjoying dinner with her husband Joe Molinari on a rare night off when to their horror the Sci-Tron building in the near distance exploded in a shattering display of glass and rubble. They both ran to the site where they were hit by a scene of absolute carnage. And on the sidewalk in front of the building stood a man surveying the mess with a smile on his face; everyone else was fleeing for their lives while the sounds...

    Easy read as usual but this book just didn't grab me. Usually I have to force myself to stop reading and get some sleep but this book I almost had to force myself to keep reading. The main story line and the secondary story line were both interesting on their own but neither one was fully developed enough for a full book. Hence, the introduction of the 2nd story that really added nothing to the overall story. Perhaps the authors needed to throw i...
  • Marleen
    Ultimately, this 16th installment in the WMC series was not such a very satisfying read. First of all, the criminal trial for that bomber took forever (more than half of the book), and then to have that plot fizzle out, towards the end, without giving the readers a true sense of justice. The subplot was even more ridiculous. Imagine a miniature psycho who has kept himself hidden as a mental patient for 40 years, only to go out at night - through ...
  • Krystin Rachel (Here's The Fucking Twist)
    My book ish: Blog | InstaThis book can most aptly be summed as: butt syringes and bombs. All of the metaphors that conjures for you are accurate.It's basically the same old, same old: romance and relationship trouble, a few different subplots, courtroom drama and murder all coming together in a way that makes me scream WHY IS THIS MAN A PUBLISHED AUTHOR?!Honestly.Except, ok, this one wasn't as bad as the usual Patterson books that I hate-read. Li...

    The Women's Murder Club is back and there's plenty to keep your attention. With a few surprises thrown in, this was not a let down and I'm anxiously waiting for #17!
  • Book Addict Shaun
    Because of the snobbery surrounding James Patterson’s books I sometimes feel like I have to justify my enjoyment of them. That said, I unashamedly love the Women’s Murder Club series and hope they keep being released for many years to come. That said I didn’t feel like 16th Seduction was the best book in the series, but I still enjoyed it. There’s two stories going on. One centres around a court case after the bomber of a San Francisco la...
  • Ed
    #16 in the Women's Murder Club series (and #13 with co-author Maxine Paetro). As always, short chapters; large font; and, plenty of white space, make this entry a quick read. Though engrossing, it was also unsatisfying because it left too many loose ends. What is the status of Lindsay's marriage, and has Joe answered the questions about his absence? Did Yuki just abandon her defense attorney job to rejoin the D.A.? Did Joe forget about Sophie Fie...
  • Vicki Mock
    I have generally stopped reading James Patterson books, or any books where the author is now sharing credit another writer. I have however always enjoyed the Women's Murder Club. This book was extremely poorly written. The plot was far fetched. There was limited interaction between the ladies and Joe. The ladies and the relationship with Joe being my motivation for reading. This book was obviously not written by James Patterson, and with deep reg...

    Fifteen months ago, Lindsay Boxer thought that she had the perfect life with a husband who loved her and kept no secrets and a gorgeous daughter. That all came crashing down when those who have read Book #15 remember that Lindsay discovered that Joe had been lying to her and was part of the CIA. Now the pair is trying to get their romance and family back on track when they are witnesses to a bombing at the science museum. As they are trained law ...

    Holy crap that was my favorite installment of the series to date! I loved the domestic terrorism angle. I loved seeing Lindsay and Joe going through the process of mending their relationship while Lindsay's career was in a bit of a peril. This was so fast paced and action packed. My quick and simple overall: GREAT!
  • Darinda
    Lindsey and Joe were out having dinner when a science museum exploded. They rushed to the scene, and of all things, ran into a guy who confessed to being the bomber. Lindsey arrested him in what should be an open and shut case, but the suspect turned out to be more brilliant than anyone expected. As a side story, people were being murdered by the Stealth Killer, an unassuming and unexpected killer. The 16th book in the Women's Murder Club series....

    Ooh die ‘The women’s murder club’ is een fantastische reeks, korte en vlot lezende hoofdstukken. Geen saai intermezzo maar recht op het doel af...en dan tussendoor die afspraakjes voor aan de kakelende vrouwenclub...ZALIG! Een echt aanrader, je kan ze los lezen maar ik vind door de verhaallijnen door dat je hier en daar iets mist dus van 1-16 en je zal je niet vervelen!

    This was another great Women's Murder Club book. This series just keeps getting better and better. I had a hard time putting this one down.

    I give it 4.5 stars. My only disappointment is Julie's treatment. Why did the author make Lindsey a parent and make her so neglectful of her child? I was also glad to see Joe's return. I hope to see more of him in future installments.

  • Amanda
    I have loved the Women's Murder Club series from the beginning, but #16 just fell flat. I kept waiting for this 'bombshell' to drop, and obviously it was the one in the very beginning of the book. The drama never pulled me in and hooked me as the others have. The narratives by Yuki and Cindy just seemed so out of place and detached. I feel as if this book was just thrown together to keep the series rolling. I liked the secondary story of Neddie s...
  • Gail
    What an amazing story! I love the Woman's Murder Club series! A fast paced read filled with lots of twists and turns and a surprise ending. Looking forward to the next book in the series!
  • Dorel
    I liked the scenes with Lindsay & Joe. I felt bad for Joe. I liked the scenes with Lindsay & her friends. This 16th book's story line was boring.
  • Amy
    All of my reviews can be found on www.novelgossip.comThe Women’s Murder Club series is one I turn to whenever I want to read a book purely to be entertained as I haven’t been let down by Lindsay and her girls yet! This series is highly entertaining and addictive and if you’ve never read anything by Patterson before, it’s a fantastic place to start. Whenever I grab one of these books I feel like I’m catching up with old friends because L...
  • Carol
    There is something about this series that truly appeals to me. My problem is with myself. Because the books stand alone just fine, I have found that I have several holes and am trying to find copies so that I can get them read.This is a good installment. Patterson and Maxine Paetro have good chemistry and have made some very good stories together, this series being one. Don't want to be a spoiler, as there are some very interesting plot twists an...
  • Richard
    Not as exciting as usual. I only read Patterson when he has a co-author, but this one was disappointing.
  • Wayland Smith
    One of Patterson's best selling creations is the Women's Murder Club, usually (if not always) co-written with Maxine Paetro. The books focus on four professional women in San Francisco: Lindsay Boxer, homicide inspector, Claire Washburn, medical examiner, Cindy Thomas, crime reporter, and Yuki Castalleno, Assistant District Attorney. Somehow, they manage to work together to solve cases, although with occasional conflicts of interest, usually with...
  • Tiffany PSquared
    Although I love the Women's Murder Club series, this wasn't one of my favorites. I felt that there were so many loopholes that made it an unrealistic read - especially during the court case. I was voicing strategies and objections and I haven't had one day of law school. In addition, I felt that the extra mental patient serial killer was an unnecessary distraction that added very little to the story.All that being said, I will definitely continue...
