I really enjoy this series about the four women -- the cop, the ADA, the ME and the reporter.
A terrorist group is -- yes -- terrorizing San Francisco. The ladies must be MORE than one step of the small band of radicals who sign their word "August Spies" -- and the life of one of the ladies is in terrible peril because she works for what the group perceives as their enemy.
Another excellent read by James Patterson!! This one was a bit harder, as one of the Women's Murder Club books is in danger, but the plot twists and Lt Boxer's perseverance kept me reading late into the night.
James Patterson has become something of a formula writer but that's not a bad thing in the case of this series. He keeps the reader interested not only in the crime solving aspect but in the character development as well.
