Overview

14th Deadly Sin (Women's Murder Club Series #14) by James Patterson, Maxine Paetro

With San Francisco under siege and everyone a suspect, the Women's Murder Club must risk their lives to save the city-and each other.

With a beautiful baby daughter and a devoted husband, Detective Lindsay Boxer can safely say that her life has never been better. In fact (for a change), things seem to be going well for all the members of the Women's Murder Club as they gather to celebrate San Francisco Medical Examiner Claire Washburn's birthday. But the party is cut short when Lindsay is called to a gruesome crime scene, where a woman has been murdered in broad daylight.

As Lindsay investigates, shocking video footage of another crime surfaces. A video so horrific that it shakes the city to its core. Their faces obscured by masks, the cold-blooded criminals on the tape could be anyone-and now all of Lindsay's co-workers are suspects. As a rash of violence sweeps through San Francisco, and public fear and anger grow, Lindsay and her friends must risk their lives in the name of justice-before it's too late.

With shocking twists and riveting suspense, 14th DEADLY SIN proves yet again that when it comes to suspense fiction, in the words or Jeffery Deaver: "nobody does it better" than James Patterson.

This series is always a good read. The characters are like old friends by now and the stories are always well written. There are multiple plots in this story, as with other books in the series, and you are left guessing constantly as to who the culprits are and why they are doing what they are. This one deals with dirty cops, always a tough one in any precinct, especially when you have no idea who they are. Could be your partner. On the other end is a serial killer who kills once each year, always on the same day. I always enjoy reading these books and look forward to many more.

I have to agree with most of the comments. The ending was not very good. This is not the best Woman's Murder Club book. I am disappointed $14.00 is to much for this..

Very disappointed in this book. I cannot even begin to believe that James Patterson would put his name on something like this! Usually his books are so fast moving, you read it overnight or in a day or two. I had to force myself to keep going back to read it and it took me about two weeks. Usually you feel like you are right there in the scenario going on when he writes a story. Not true for this book. Then the story just ends almost mid sentence. It changes to a few chapters of another book. At first I thought it was a mistake with the book I purchased but it wasn't. They want you to wait another six to eight months or so to purchase the sequel. I feel cheated on this book. The ghost writer for this book needs to give up the ghost!

$14 for an ebook is absurd to start with but would be bearable if the book actually had some content. In this case the book shows 300 pages but they're only 8 or 10 lines per page. I really feel that James Patterson and B&N ripped me off.

Love the womens murder club series but this one what happened? The ending sucked

If you like a good mystery with a little romance then this series is for you. I have read the Woman's Murder Club books more than once. The stories always seems to pull you right in as if you are a member of this club.  I can't get enough of them. James Patterson is a wonderful author and all his books are good I just prefer this series.

The end was really bad, like it ended in the middle of the writer's thought process. The other 13 were much better.

I really did enjoy this book. However it felt like it ended suddenly...maybe due to it not wrapping up an investigation in the middle or near the end and it seemed like Claire was nonexistent in this one especially when the one investigation involed murders on her bday (I understand why Cindy was not a huge focus). Overall, enjoyed the book and the focus on lindsay and her personal life...looking forward to the next one

Love James Patterson's women's murder club books. Read them all. This book was a good read, but, the ending was disappointing. It just stopped.,my thoughts were--I hope I don't have to wait years for the next one to see what happens next.

 Well I enjoyed reading this book I found the ending to be quite disappointing.  This book is definitely set us up to want to buy the next one but I'm not sure I'm going to.  This time I found not as much action as I expected and a little too much personal information about the characters that I really don't care about.  Mr. Patterson it's time to reinvest in the series and get it moving again

I liked the book. It was faced paced and a good read. I was very disappointed by the ending. It just stopped in mid story. I am assuming his next book will finish it off otherwise it was a totally wasted story.

I have to admit that I haven't read the last few books in the series, though I do have them on my bookshelves, so I wasn't aware that Lindsay had a daughter until I started reading this book. There's a lot going on this installment with plenty of twists and turns around every chapter (which are short), which is what I expected from a James Patterson title. It basically follows the similar formula that the other books follow, except for the cliffhanger ending that introduces a foe for Lindsay - the Kingfisher. I'm sure some readers won't care for this type of ending, but it doesn't bother me at all. Actually, I'm now looking forward to next installment in the series, which will probably be released next spring. Overall, 14th Deadly Sin is a fast-paced, solid entry in the Women's Murder Club series.

Same as the others in the series. Reads quickly. Ending leaves the reader hanging - to find out what happens, reader will have to buy #15 in the series. Boo.

14th Deadly Sin is the fourteenth book in the Women’s Murder Club series by prolific American author, James Patterson. It is co-written with Maxine Paetro. Detective Sergeant Lindsay Boxer and Detective Inspector Rich Conklin are given a disturbing case: robberies from check-cashing shops and Latino mercados where the perpetrators wore SFPD Windbreakers, but were well disguised with rubber face masks and gloves. Some witnesses has been murdered and CCTV footage was poor. When Lindsay and Rich are called to a stabbing murder in broad daylight in a public place, a chance remark has Lindsay checking for similar unsolved murders. Her hands are full with the Windbreaker heists, but a newly unemployed Joe Molinari takes up the case. Yuki Castellano quits the DA’s office and takes a job with a firm defending cases for those who can’t afford counsel. Her first case is a fifteen-year-old who is accused of the shooting murder of three drug dealers, and puts her in direct opposition to her old boss, DA Len Parisi. Lindsay’s superior, Warren Jacobi is troubled by reports that execution-style murders of drug dealers are being carried out by cops. Could they be linked to the Windbreaker heists? Meanwhile, SF Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas is busy attending book signings for her lately published first book. She and the fourth member of the Women’s Murder Club, medical examiner Claire Washburn are very much in the background for this instalment. It’s sort of nice to see ex-FBI agent Joe Molinari playing stay-at-home dad to Julie and helping Lindsay out with her case, even in both he and Lindsay (separately) do something stupidly dangerous, and get away unscathed. Yuki shows that she’s got what it takes as a defence lawyer, especially when all the odds seem to be against her. Some of the writing is rather poor and stilted, with unnecessary and inane detail adding fill. This one has a bit of a cliff-hanger ending, but not as annoying as some recent Alex Cross books. Perhaps 15th Affair will reveal all.

The Womens Murder Club solves the case again fair warning another cliff hanger.

The ending reads as though someone forgot to include the last few chapters and bring the story to a resolution Big disappointment Ive read all the books in this series but this will be my last one The cost is too high and quality too low

I love the Women's Murder Club series and wait with anticipation for the next one to come out. What I didn't like this time was, as with recent James Patterson's books, if you want to find out what has happened, you have to buy the next book. I guess that is the new trend now to make more money and sell more books.

I was really enjoying the book until the last sentence. I did not like how it seemed to end mid story though.
