Overview

The 8th Confession (Women's Murder Club Series #8) by James Patterson, Maxine Paetro

As San Francisco's most glamorous millionaires mingle at the party of the year, someone is watching--waiting for a chance to take vengeance on Isa and Ethan Bailey, the city's most celebrated couple. Finally, the killer pinpoints the ideal moment, and it's the perfect murder. Not a trace of evidence is left behind in their glamorous home.

As Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the high-profile murder, someone else is found brutally executed--a preacher with a message of hope for the homeless. His death nearly falls through the cracks, but when reporter Cindy Thomas hears about it, she knows the story could be huge. Probing deeper into the victim's history, she discovers he may not have been quite as saintly as everyone thought.

As the hunt for two criminals tests the limits of the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay sees sparks fly between Cindy and her partner, Detective Rich Conklin. The Women's Murder Club now faces its toughest challenge: will love destroy all that four friends have built? The exhilarating new chapter in the Women's Murder Club series, The 8th Confession serves up a double dose of speed-charged twists and shocking revelations as only James Patterson can. And remember, this is the only Murder Club episode of the year.

I really enjoyed this lastest book in the series. I had read all of the others in the series and had been waiting for the next one to come out. I absolutely love the whole series. The thing that I like the most about all of these books is that you don't have to read them in order. You get to know the characters very well. I am hoping that there is going to be more to come in the future. I think I've read almost all of his books and he never lets me down.

The Murder Club continues to be a hit series. The ladies solve crimes, fall in love, bond over beer and margarita all while protecting San Francisco. I've been a fan of this series from the first novel and I continue to look forward to each new publication. The author has done a good job at keeping the characters interesting and fresh. Even though I was hoping for the other girl to get the guy! If you're a first time Murder Club reading, start from one, its worth it.

The story grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. As usually happens, the women deal with two crimes. In the first, there is a serial killer who murders well-to-do people that she hates. When police arrive, the bodies always show no sign of violence. It is eventually revealed that the killer slips into the victims' bedrooms during the night and uses a krait, a deadly snake from Asia, to bite the victim or victims. This provides some tense times for Sergeant Boxer. At the same time, Boxer and company are investigating what appears to be the murder of a homeless man. He is not who he seems to be. The characters in the Women's Murder Club series are wonderful because of their strength and their passion for life. Loved it!

I thought "The 8th Confession" was a good book, especially compared to James Patterson's "Run for Your Life", which was way below my expectations. I liked the way Patterson set up the plot of the story unraveling a few different storylines at the same time and then joining them together at the end. The author focuses not only on the murderer who managed to keep the high society in horror, but also on the deeper issues, such as relationship between rich and poor, and grudge held through the years and then materialized in the killing spree. As far as I understand this is book 8 of the Women's Murder Club series, and I think I would like to read the other seven books. This book is a page turner, took me only a few days to finish. Just purchased book 6, will let you know if I like that one.

I've read most of the Alex Cross Series by James Patterson. Jack and Jill was my favorite. I've also read most of the Woman's Murder Club Series. 1st To Die was my favorite in that series. I've also read Swimsuit and The Quickie, as a "stand alone" and both were excellent novels. 8th Confession was a good read. As usual, there was good depth of character (Norma) which can actually make you care for the characters. The plot was original, off beat, thrilling and carefully thought out with the usual twists and turns. I also love Patterson's writing style. His writing style and short chapters make his novels an easy read.

I love James Patterson and the Murder Club. It flows with the past books, but could be read without reading the others. It is an easy read. The curse words were minimal (I prefer none).

I've read most of Patterson's books and don't consider this one of his best. Seems like the story line was weak and he spent a lot of time going over information that was in previous books.

After the previous Women's Murder Club books, I had really looked forward to this one. The interaction of the women was really missing in this book, and the plot was weak and confusing. The author(s) had too many story lines going, and the connections didn't work. Although this book was an okay diversion to everyday life, and for that is worth bothering with, get it at your local library and do not bother to buy it.

having read all of the prior books in the Woman's Murder Club series, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. Was sorely disappointed. Definitely not up to his usual terrific work! Found the dual plot lines to be confusing and disjointed. The book itself was consumed in one evening's reading. time to take a break from Patterson, I guess.

He does it again. I was hooked after the first paragraph.

This is another great Patterson read. I am not always a fan of his books with co-authors, though his Women's Murder Club Series tends to be good. This one has some great and unexpected plot twists. That said, this book should come with a graphic warning; the first scene/chapter is horribly graphic - much more so than it needs to be. It could have easily started with the second scene/chapter without any damage to the plot. Also, some of the sub-plots are more loosely connected to the main plot than is usual in this series. Overall, this is a great book. If you don't like graphic violence, skip the first scene/chapter.

The 8th Confession rates as one of the best James Patterson novels that I have had the pleasure of reading. Although the plot is very unusual, it keeps you on the edge of your seat and found me trying to guess who the murderer was and what the outcome would be. I read this book in record time and was intrigued by the twists and turns of events. I am looking forward to the next novel coming in December 2009.

It's a good summer read, fast-paced, short chapters, good multiple plots with twists and turns with the characters we've grown to love! Also, there were some interesting relationship twists in this book that I thought brought more depth and interest to Lindsay's and Yuki's character. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to just sit back and enjoy a good book!

I have read all of the Women's Murder Club Mysteries and this did not meet my expectations. All of the others were suspenseful, the characters were interesting, the plots were good, but this one fell way flat. I was extremely disappointed.

I've read most of Patterson's books. This one is a 5-star winner. Patterson's ability to continually create original, suspense-filled, thrilling plots is amazing. The 8th Confession is no exception. It's a real page-turner. The plot twists are surprising, especially with finding two different murderers simultaneously. This was a "can't put it down read." I read this cover to cover in one night. Lindsay Boxer and the Women's Murder Club are characters that make the story entertaining.

I have all of the Alex Cross books, now I have all of the Women's Murder Club books and I am sad because neither one of these two series has anything new coming up as of yet. The 8th Confession, which was recently released, was excellent just like all the others. I love Pattersons writing style, it is easy, makes the time go by fast and extremele catching. You, literally, just want to sit down with a glass of wine and your book and just read.
