  • 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...

    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...

    I’ve always liked James Patterson’s style – fun and light with short chapters that make for a quick read. Two of my favorite series are Alex Cross and the Women’s Murder Club. But lately something’s been off. I’m finding myself intrigued enough to start the book, but then it doesn’t hold my attention enough to be compelled to finish it. Usually, it’s past bedtime and I’m eagerly reading just a few more of those super short chapt...

    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...

    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....

    Book 17.. wow. I just love this series and it is still going strong. The Women of the Murder Club are like family now.
  • Tiffany PSquared
    The women of the Murder Club handle more baddies in this installment: An a-typical rapist, a hot-dog lawyer with tricks up his sleeve, and an elusive serial killer who is stalking the homeless.All that sounds interesting enough, but this book was just meh to me.The arrogant, sexist men in this series just seem to be reiterations of the same foul character with different names and physical descriptions (sometimes not even that).Plus, I am not a la...

    4 stars! I just love the Women’s Murder Club series so much! From the first book to this one it’s consistently been exciting and fun to read. I’ve always been a really big James Patterson fan. The chapters of his books are super short and I simply fly through the pages. Although a few of his books have been hit or miss, this series is my favorite. If you’ve never read a James Patterson book, I recommend reading this series. You won’t be...
  • Suzanne
    I don’t know if it was because I missed the character so much while waiting for this installment or what but I loved it! The homeless killings, Boxer’s health concerns, and a male rape case lead to an intriguing read. This is a quick read but I had prior matters to handle so took me a bit longer but a reader could easily read this within a few hours. My quick and simple overall: intriguing and fast-paced.
  • Book Addict Shaun
    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...
  • Scott
    Let me be honest up front. I read most of James Patterson’s books and have for several years. Some might ask why and that’s another whole discussion best saved for another day. I have really enjoyed some, liked some, and didn’t really care for others. On a personal level, I must admit that his Women’s Murder Club series – focused on the professional and personal lives of four women in San Francisco - has turned into my least favorite of...

    Waffled between 2 and 3 stars, so I guess it's 2.5 stars, rounded down. Someone is shooting homeless people, and the investigating detectives are putting much effort in. When a homeless woman asks Lindsay Boxer to help, she gets cross-wise with others in the department. Meanwhile, Yuki takes on a case prosecuting a women for raping a subordinate male at gunpoint. Sadly, ME Claire Washburn and reporter Cindy were just bit players, and we heard alm...

    Welcome to the Lindsay and Yuki show! When the four members of the Women's Murder Club come together in a book - in this case, the 17th in the series - it's a pretty sure bet that San Francisco Police Department Sergeant Lindsay Boxer will snag a leading role. Which of the other three will take the stage with her is up for grabs, but this time out, Attorney Yuki Castellano gets the nod. Their compadres, medical examiner Claire Washburn and crime ...

    Ugh. I love this series but really? Can we say - predictable? Oy.... still a good read just lacking the “thrill” in thriller. It was more like a ride on the teacups rather than the roller coaster. On to the next one my friends.....❤ Ugh. I love this series but really? Can we say - predictable?

    This is my favorite Patterson series and Maxine Paetro did a great job with this one! I was engaged from page 1 and flew it. The most interesting part, for me, was Yuki’s storyline and the subject of female-on-male rape. Unfortunately, we don’t see much of Claire (or Cindy) in this one and Lindsay’s storyline is kind of blah, but Yuki carried the book for me!
  • Paula Phillips
    Lindsay Boxer has been getting a rough time lately within the Women's Murder Club books , now she is back in front of I.A when she is accused of stepping on central's turf which in all fairness she was , but she wouldn't have had too if they had done their job properly in the first place as someone is killing the homeless and when a social worker Millie comes to Lindsay she starts looking into it with the help of ME friend Claire and notices a pa...
  • Laura Rash
    With only 2 major eye rolls, this was a good installment in this series. I’d like to see some major changes in some characters paths in the next books before the storyline goes stale. Always entertaining tho

    Not quite as intense feeing (mystery wise), to me, but still a good story. Always great to be back with the “Club”! :))
  • Darcy
    With this book there was a lot going on. Initially I liked Yuki's case, liked how Yuki was fighting for something that doesn't happen very often. Sadly Yuki's luck on cases hasn't been good lately and this time around it things were screwed up. I loved how Yuki pursued things when she realized things weren't what they seemed and loved how she finished things up. Sadly Yuki's work life wasn't the only thing in flux. I was glad when finally Yuki go...

    Yuki has taken on a potentially explosive assault case in which a man is accusing his female boss of assault. Is it as straightforward as it seems? Meanwhile, Lindsay has been given a tip about someone killing the homeless in the city. Unfortunately, the killings are outside of her jurisdiction, and her efforts to investigate start an inner department skirmish. Can she figure out who is killing these people?Fans of the series will be pleased with...
  • Katie
    The 17th Suspect benefits greatly from being part of a series. I was somewhat interested in following the latest happenings in the lives of the four members of the Women's Murder Club- or at least Yuki and Lindsay. Claire and Cindy were just bit players, if that. Beyond that, the sub-plots were not that compelling and pretty easy to figure out. I was initially attracted to the book from the description's hint that there was something horribly wro...
  • Lindsey Gandhi
    I absolutely love the Women's Murder Club series by Patterson, but this one fell a little flat for me. It had the usual exciting drama and yet it didn't rev up my engine the way some of his past books had. I know not all books in a series are going to be homeruns. After the last book I've been waiting on the edge of me seat for the next book, and this one left me somewhat disappointed. But I still love you as an author James Patterson!!
  • 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.....
  • 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.
  • Carol
    Yahoo, I finally got caught up. I've been reading here and there since I first started and finally realized that it might be important to read them a little more in order. This is #17 of the series. In the newest Women's Murder Club thriller, a killer who chooses victims personally is stalking San Francisco--and getting too close to Detective Lindsay Boxer. A series of shootings exposes San Francisco to a methodical yet unpredictable killer, and ...
  • Shelle Perry
    It's James Patterson. How bad can it be? Not bad exactly, but not really enthralling either. I had hoped it was just my frame of mind that had me skimming through the book not quite caught up in what should have been a fantastic ride. Unfortunately, as I read through this page, I find that others agree exactly with my experience with this book. I am certainly not ready to give up on James Patterson, but I don't feel so bad about not being thrille...
