Reviews The 17th Suspect (Women's Murder Club, #17)

  • Matt
    A longtime fan of the Women’s Murder Club series, I was pleased to get my hands on its seventeenth instalment. James Patterson and Maxine Paetro have been able to keep the momentum up throughout the years and keep the reader highly entertained. When ADA Yuki Castellano learns that a man is seeking to press charges of rape against his female superior, she’s intrigued and ready to take it to the Grand Jury. Believing that she can make the case,...

    Wow, did I just go on an all night emotional rollercoaster or what?! I am so thankful that I received a copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for an honest review! I am in total fangirl status right now! The Women's Murder Club Series is the series that rekindled my LOVE for reading. I was slumping around the house and binging on Netflix 24/7 because of some new chronic illnesses. I was just in a total fog and numbed out completely. I...

    17th Suspect by James Patterson is the 17th in the Women's Murder Club series, and this time the focus is mainly on Yuki Castellano and a solid case that had gone to trial - one she was sure she would win - and Sergeant Lindsay Boxer's determination to bring a killer to justice.When Lindsay was approached by a woman with information about murders that were occurring among the homeless, Lindsay and her partner Rich Conklin made some discoveries th...

    Book 17.. wow. I just love this series and it is still going strong. The Women of the Murder Club are like family now.

    The second of the James Patterson books I've read recently and I enjoyed it slightly more than NYPD Red 5. My issues with both books are the same though. The author churns out so many books per year I think they lose some of the quality. This is like many of his others in that they are fine for maybe a beach read but you wouldn't want to go back and re-read them over again. There's just not enough plot to make you want to go back time and again....

    3.5 stars.I’m struggling lately to give any of Patterson’s books more than 3.5 stars. His books are like Writing 101, churned out to the tune of the same template over and over. I’ve been a fan since I was a teenager and discovered Along Came A Spider though, so I’m really reluctant to throw the towel in completely with either Alex Cross or Women’s Murder Club. I’ve given up on everything else that is thrown out with his name attached...

    The annual Women’s Murder Club release is always something I look forward to, even if I don’t always read them on release, there’s something comforting about such a long-running series always being there and this is one of my absolute favourites. 17th Suspect I felt was a good addition to the series, however taking away the WMC, if this had been just a bog-standard crime novel by another author, it wouldn’t have been as enjoyable or as pu...
  • Pam
    Very good read.
  • Lin
    PredictableSadly this one is predictable and dull. Too much filler and not enough story. Such a shame as I used to love his books for their ingenuity
  • Paula Brubaker
    I was disappointed with this book. Wasn't a page turner as previous ones were. Don't really know what else to say.....
  • Clare
    I enjoyed this book to a point. But I felt it was quite light on the story front as there's normally 2-4 stories inter-twinned. Look forward to the next one in the series.
  • Je Jones
    I usually really like this series. But this book was slow and boring in places. With none of the twists and turns that the Women's Murder Club series has. A little disappointed.
  • Jackie
    Liked the ending.
  • Tracey Billing
    The homeless are being killed and no one seems to care except Linds and Rich. The WMC are back, we don't get a lot of the girls together any more, but in this book we get it from both Lindsay and Yuki's point of view.
  • Julie Garner
    Love the Women's Murder Club series...
  • Monica
    I CAN’T UNDERSTAND why authors put previews at the end of the book ; I thought I still had 20 pages till the end!! :( Of course, I LOVED the book! I loved how we get to see the people growing along with us - I still remember Julie as a baby! I would have felt the suspense better if I had read the book over a longer period of time, but I’m a book gobbler, what can I say? I REALLY HOPE that this is not the finale, because if it is, I’ll be ve...
  • Marcia
    Every time I feel like giving up on James Patterson ‘s books, I read one like the 17th Suspect which is what keeps me as a long time reader. Clearly, Mr Patterson contracts with others ( in this case Maxine Paetro) to do the actual writing according to a formulaic pattern that has worked well in the past. The writing is simple and clear and the chapters are short making the books a quick and easy read. In this latest installment of the Women’...
  • Cathy Fogg
    Reading a Women’s Murder Club book is like slipping on a comfy pair of slippers. You know exactly what you’re getting with the characters you love. Another great book by James Patterson - bring on number 18.

    PredictableThe main story was predictable and you could see what will happen. I think this isn't one of my favourite books.
  • Natalie Mullan
    I Absolutely love the Women ‘s Murder Club & the 17th instalment lives up to its reputation. Excellent character development continues, as does a dynamic & interesting plot. Now we have to wait for 18!
  • Shelley
    If you like this series, you will probably like this book. Great characters and a nice, light read.
  • Amanda Hill
    ConfusionA good read but not as good as usual!! Not as exciting and definitely not the usual women s murder club outing. It felt very disjointed and ended very abruptly. Onwards and upwards xxxxx
  • Liz
    Yet another great instalment in this wonderful series. Opening the latest Women's Murder Club book is like meeting up with old friends. Two plots running alongside each other ensured there was never a dull moment and I read this in just one afternoon/evening. I love the interaction between the characters as well. An interesting ending means I'm already looking forward to the next in the series!
  • Shane Phillips
    A good combination of stories for this series.
  • Gina Nagy
    I enjoy the Women’s Murder Mystery Club series and in true fashion, this one does not disappoint. Very easy, fast read.
  • Anna
    Was well worth the wait.... must be a number 18 right!!! 🤓
  • Pauline Morgan
    Each book in the series gets better.Once started I couldn't put the book down. It kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I love the hard edged crime side but love the softer stories of the family side of the Murder Club. Bring on the next one .
  • Kay McCauley
    I cannot believe I have finished this bookMy goodness what a fantastic read. The end really snuck up on me through as before I knew it I had finished the whole book. I know he will write another, for me I read these all at once so not looking forward to my now long wait. Hope its not too long.
  • Trish
    Easy to read, mildly enjoyable
