Overview

2nd Chance (Women's Murder Club Series #2) by James Patterson, Andrew Gross

Master of suspense James Patterson takes us into a terrifying underworld with this second thriller in his dazzling new Women's Murder Club series.

The sensational killings that have rocked San Francisco appear to be unrelated except in their brutality. But detective Lindsay Boxer senses there's some thread connecting them all. She calls her friends in the Women's Murder Club together to see if they can discover what it is. Surely some clue has been overlooked by their bosses and male colleagues.

Working with Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas, Assistant District Attorney Jill Bernhardt, and medical examiner Claire Washburn, Lindsay discovers that there is indeed a link. The victims were of different ages, lived in different locations, and were killed with different weapons. But each had a close relative in a particular profession, a profession that sends a chill through Lindsay's heart.

The partners in the Women's Murder Club realize that this killer is after something unspeakable, something deeper than revenge, and that the next target could be one of them. They deduce where the killer is likely to strike next and bait a trap that can't be resisted. But if their calculation is wrong, the consequences will be lethal. And there will be no second chance.

I guess i think these mystery "suspense" novels are just not written very well. They all seem the same to me. I bought a few because they were half off and will read them when i have nothing else. This cop does stupid things that make no sense. No phone, no vest, no backup, yeah right. Thank god we didn't have a long sex scene with the preacher and the reporter. If these women are so tough, smart, independent and amazing at what they do, can we have a little less crying. I am a woman.

Enjoyable, fast reading. The plot keeps your interest and the characters are likeable.

The plot was very well conceived. Every time I thought I knew who committed the crimes, the focus switched on to someone else. Not until the last chapter did Patterson unveil who the real culprit was...amazing story line...kept me glued to the book until the very end!! I read this nook book on an iPad this time. I was able to download a free nook app for the iPad. I set the font size to very large, and it was a very easy read. Sorry B&N...don't see much of a need in buying another Nook going forward.

I am now on #3 and thoroughly enjoy this series. It is a nice mix of crime, friendship and the outcome of working together. The storyline is a pleasure to follow and the women, in the club, each have their own personal stories that take you into their individual lives. I am looking forward to the next book.

A lot of significant characters in this book were being killed and you had no clue who was doing the shootings until the last chapter. Very thrilling.

His are always a good read. This one was a return visit as it's been years and years since I read this series. Now, I won't have to buy it again after I donate used books so I have room for more as this one is permanently in my Nook library. Enjoy this read. It's a good one!

"2nd Chance" by James Patterson is the second in the Women's Murder Club series. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first one (1st to Die) I had high expectations for this. In the usual James Patterson style the story starts off with full on action and emotion and continues through the whole book at a fast pace, tension and twists abound with a final turn in the story I really hadn't thought of. Nice short chapters keep you reading 'just one more' until you realise you've nearly finished the book. I know Patterson's books have slightly lost their way of late but these earlier works are just class and I highly recommend them, I can't wait to start the 3rd in the series - I'm quite taken with the female characters and look forward to reading more.

After solving the last case in book one, Lindsay made homicide detective. She is now the first female homicide detective in San Francisco and the department’s first female lieutenant. She is extremely proud of herself and knows what this means for herself and her future. The women that she pulled together in her investigative club are proud of her accomplishment and this Women’s Murder Club is still together as they are on another case in the second book of this series. I liked this second novel more than the first as I thought it was more twisted and had more depth than the first one. The characters were more sinister and dark and I liked that. The Women’s Murder Club had to dig deeper and imply and untangle more of the clues more than have the facts jump right out at them. The drama is continuous in this novel as the story opens up with a shooting at a church that is located in a predominately black section of town. It is initially thought of as a random shooting but as they close in on the details, things don’t look random at all. There is another death and Lindsay is back trying to connect the cases together. Things are looking hopeful and Lindsay calls the Women’s Murder Club into the action. The ladies are quick to fill in the details and the case is narrowing in on the suspect. Oh, they had the suspect locked in tight and all was certain but it’s never final until all your I’s are dotted and your t’s are crossed and that is what is bothering Lindsay in this case, somethings are just not matching up. There is drama within the Women’s Murder Club now too as one of them prepares for motherhood and one of them decides to start dating. They all have advice for one another and they all are there for one another, which is a great thing about having women for friends. It’s a code of silence, this ability to keep quiet as a killer stalks the neighborhood, as the police are conducting their own investigation, their own private club that no one else knows about. I am enjoying this series.

Rating 0 because I bought all these books to red on the web and now it doesn't work and hasn't worked for a couple months? Sick and tired of excuses!
