James Patterson is back with another fantastic novel.
Plot: Detective Lindsay Boxer has everything she could possibly want. Her marriage and baby daughter are perfect, and life in Homicide in the San Francisco Police Department is going well. But all that could change in an instant. Lindsay is called to a crime scene at the Four Seasons Hotel. There is a dead man in one of the rooms, shot at close range. The man checked in under a false name with no ID on him, so the first puzzle will be finding out who he is. In the room next door are a dead young man and woman, also shot. They are surrounded by high-tech surveillance equipment. Could they have been spying on the man now dead in the room next to them? And in the utilities cupboard down the hall is the dead body of a house maid. The murders are all clearly linked and professionally executed. But what is the motive behind it all? Lindsay will need to risk everything she has to find out.
Remarks: I am such a big fan of James Patterson and his writing. His thriller novels are always so captivating and I often struggle to put the book down. This was, once again, the case with his new novel ’15th Affair’ – part of his Women’s Murder Club franchise. This time around the story was quite strong which I really enjoyed. James also wrote this book beautifully and the story was easy to read and flowed quite nicely. As with many of James’ book, the characters developed nicely throughout the novel. There was something so interesting about Lindsay’s persona. She is a great detective and puts her all into her job which, ultimately, helps her find out who killed the people at the hotel. The only thing I wasn’t thrilled about is the fact that the story turned out to be quite predictable. That being said, this is definitely a book you should be adding to your reading list soon.
