The Misses Personality

Posted by JaneM on Tuesday, Jun 7, 2011 - 8:35 AM

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977, James Patterson's books have sold more than 205 million copies.

With three adult mystery series and two—sometimes three—stand-alone adult thrillers a year … not to mention several series for young readers …

Also, the film and television adaptations and the video games …

Does the man ever sleep?

The Women’s Murder Club has reached a landmark number—ten—and the latest book is named, appropriately, 10th Anniversary. This series entry was co-authored by Maxine Paetro.

Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found.

Attorney Yuki Castellano is prosecuting the case of a doctor accused of murdering her husband and crime reporter Cindy Thomas finds herself in too deep when she starts investigating a local rapist.

“ … a fast-paced triple mystery that expertly weaves the stories together. It is the distinct yet complementary personalities of the WMC members that make the story's heart beat.” —Library Journal

You can find full profiles of the Club member on Patterson’s website, which reveals a few secrets you won’t find in the books … “One thing that very few people know about Lindsay is that she has a tattoo of a one-inch gecko on her left buttock.”  Really, who knew?

 

 

Recommended for readers who enjoy David Baldacci,

Patricia Cornwell, and John Grisham.
