(Book) The 8th Confession by James Patterson

49

I loved the first few books of the murder club, and on book 8, I’m slowly getting annoyed. The basic premise was that the women (a reporter, a medical examiner, a police detective, etc) get together over drinks, share information and solve a case. It was fun, it was a girl’s night gone weird. I loved it.

As the books have progressed it is less about the girls getting together and more about the detective. I miss the heavy on the girls night stuff. It’s missing that, in my opinion.

The book by itself is good, the story a bit “eh” but it was a quick beach type of read. Having read this entire series as they’ve done out, I can’t help but be disappointed though. I miss the Murder Club of old.

I hope book 9 gets us back to that, but I keep hoping that. I keep reading them though!

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.

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.

And remember, this is the only Murder Club episode of the year.
