The 8th Confession: Review & Giveaway

About The Book:

As San Francisco's most glamorous millionaires mingle at the party of the year, someone is watching--waiting for a chance to take vengeance on Isa and Ethan Bailey, the city's most celebrated couple. Finally, the killer pinpoints the ideal moment, and it's the perfect murder. Not a trace of evidence is left behind in their glamorous home.

As Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the high-profile murder, someone else is found brutally executed--a preacher with a message of hope for the homeless. His death nearly falls through the cracks, but when reporter Cindy Thomas hears about it, she knows the story could be
huge. Probing deeper into the victim's history, she discovers he may not have been quite as saintly as everyone thought.

As the hunt for two criminals tests the limits of the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay sees sparks fly between Cindy and her partner, Detective Rich Conklin. The Women's Murder Club now faces its toughest challenge: will love destroy all that four friends have built? The exhilarating new chapter in the Women's Murder Club series,
The 8th Confession serves up a double dose of speed-charged twists and shocking revelations as only James Patterson can. And remember, this is the only Murder Club episode of the year.

My Review:


I very much enjoy James Patterson's writting and The 8th Confession was not a disappointment!  I love the many different plot lines, and the book really keeps you thinking about what is going to happen next. This book had my attention from the first page and I was intrigued and on my seat throughout the book.
I felt the characters are very well developed and it seems to me that with each Women's Murder Club book that Patterson write a different woman is emphasized and you find out a little more about that specific woman! I love this! The book is easy to read and is also very quick to read. I highly recommend it, especially if you are a fan of Patterson's other Women's Murder Club book, as well as his other writing.
