Overview

It's finally time! Detective Lindsay Boxer is in labor—while two killers are on the loose.

Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby daughter is born! While Lindsay and Joe are at home in bliss, San Francisco gets hit with multiple killings. An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a murder that he claims is real. No one believes him-until a vicious shooting fits the man's description to the last detail.

Then the girlfriend of a star player for the San Francisco 49ers is found dead in her car, making the athlete the prime suspect. This seems like an open-and-shut case-until the body inexplicably vanishes from the morgue. When the desperate chief of police calls for help, Lindsay is forced to return to work after only one week at home with her newborn.

But all the crimes in the world will seem like nothing when she suddenly faces the most devastating loss of her life. With heart-pounding emotion and suspense, 12TH OF NEVER is James Patterson's most shocking and sensational Women's Murder Club novel yet.

"Patterson and co-author Paetro spin 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

Sigh...does anyone remember 1st To Die written only by James Patterson? It had one continuous plot, fantastic story and character development, and chapters that were more than 2 pages. The Women's Murder Club meant something and they all worked together to solve a mystery. That was a great book! Ah, those were the days. Now we have 12th of Never, probably named because that's the next time I'll read this book. So many stories that you can't really appreciate or enjoy any of them because there's not enough time to develop any of them fully and give the resolution any appreciation or real meaning. All the resolutions just seemed thrown together as if the authors didn't put a lot of time or thought into them. My final thoughts: 1. Enough of the June storyline. What was even the point of her being in one scene of this book? That horse was beaten dead in the last book. Let it go. 2. Come up with one mystery and let the club come together to solve it like the earlier books. Any one of the mysteries in this book would have been fabulous if developed more and allowed to completely play out. 3. More Jacobi. I miss him not being around so much. Lastly, I predict next year's title to be Friday the 13th. Next year, I'll look back at this and see if I was right.

This book end with a cliffhanger, so that we are almost forced to buy the next book for a conclusion. Guess what? I am not buying another book for more than $11.- just to finish and get to the conclusion. Apparently Mr Patterson like our government, has lost touch with the little people. What a dirty trick to play on his fans.

I am very disappointed in the way the series of the Women's Murder Club Books are going. It has changed so much from the earlier books and NOT for the better! The ending was very disappointing. It was certainly meant to be a cliff hanger - so that you have to buy the next book to see what happens. IF I read any further books of this series I will be checking it out from the Library - will NOT be spending any more money on this series until I see that it has improved.

Is JP writing anything more than his signature. Would rather read 1 good book by JP than 6 novellas like they have been feeding us. It is like "stay tuned for next weeks thrilling conclusion" , that will be 14.99 please!

I loved all of the Women's Murder Club books but this was a big disappointment. The book was boring and had no depth to it. I love all the main characters but the cases they were working on in this book were very unrealistic. The biggest letdown was the ending, the story just stops and ends ABRUPTLY! It leaves you hanging and thinking, WHAT!? The ending leaves you to believe there will be a 13th book in the series, which I will read with the hope that J. P. once again, writes an awesome thriller that cannot be put down!

I have read all of the womens murder club books and I look forward to each one. That said, this #12 series was a total boring disappointment. I forgot I was reading a womans murder club book.......what happened to these characters, they were not interesting at all. Lindsay Boxer was the biggest disappointment. The storyline was all over the place and then leaves you with a cliffhanger that I am not even sure I care about. I think Mr. Patterson needs to go back to the drawing board.

James Patterson is becoming more and more dissapointing. For a long time I would purchase (well, I still do but keep asking myself why?)one of his books as soon as they were available. Whether it was a Alex Cross book or whatever. Obviously you have it figured out what I'm going to say. Patterson is running out of juice. His great characters in this series are undeveloped and weak.I know for one I was looking forward to each and everyone. Didn't happen. He did not bring them all together until way into the book. He wasted words and paper by not having one or 2 great mysteries that all the girls work on together. Overall this long awaited book was a huge dissapointment. I feel that Patterson is getting all written out. His Alex Cross books were brilliant and nail biters. Not any longer. I don't like all the co-authored books, just one more way to make money without having to exert himself. Not to sure I will go for the "Womens Murder Club" or another Cross book anytime soon.

I love the Women's Murder Club books; however, this one had a highly disappointing ending. I felt like the author got tired and just quit writing.

I just love this series! James Patterson is a master of character development. I can't wait for the next installation. I always have the same feeling at the end of his books - I want more!! His characters are endearing, you feel as though you know them and their little quirks. I hope he continues to write about them until Lindsey's daughter grows up!! Delightful!! Strange word for a murder/mystery book!

I anticipated the release of this book and was not disappointed. I wanted to read it non stop to see what was going to happen next and loved every minute of it. I finished it so fast, I was sad it was over. Which, of course, will only build my anticipation for the next one.

Thoroughly enjoyed each book in this series and always look forward to the next one. Especially enjoy the interaction and relationship between characters. James Patterson makes them all feel like friends.

This was a very exciting book. James Patterson has done it again. It is filled with excitement, has a great character development and is just a fantastic story. Once you start reading you will not be able to put it down. You may think you will know the ending, but with Patterson, you really can't say until you read the last page. I couldn't put it down once I started. I just wanted to keep turning the pages to find out what happened. As always, his one or two page chapters makes it enjoyable to get to the end. Reading, PA.

The usual from Mr. Patterson. Not great, but an a good read to kill the afternoon or an evening. Over the past couple of years it seems that Patterson is more interested in putting out more books, not better ones. This is just another one, no where near as good as the first 4-5 in the Woman's Murder Club series.

I am a big fan of Lyndsey Boxer and friends but this book has so many sub plots that will leave your head spinning. Never knew which plot I would be encountering when I opened the book up.....a professor who for sees death, a murdered actress, an attorney on trial for murder, a sick baby, and then a murderer in prison comes out of a coma and wants to talk....the latter was added half way through the book! Too much. Character development disappointing....Lyndsey shows up at ICU to visit her daughter and never goes in to actually see her. Really?! Not the pair's best book.

Very disappointed. Plot weak.

Maybe I'm getting tired of James Patterson - I sigh sometimes over plot devices and dialogue, and this book is no different - there are a couple of good twists, but it's pretty much a ho-hum in my view.
