"7th Heaven", by James Petterson, Maxine Paetro
Women’s Murder Club series, book7
This novel is captivating, full tension and violence right from the start. It opens with a couple of serial killer arsonists invading homes of wealthy individuals restraining them and setting them on fire. Action doesn’t stop there it goes on none stop, Patterson and Paetro truly know how to deliver a thriller and provide the challenges it takes to keep the readers glued to the edge of their seat. To add further mystery, the authors intertwine the case of a rich chronically-ill young adult missing after visiting the home of a known prostitute, Junie Moon.
The investigations are spear headed by Investigator Lindsay Boxer and Yuki Castellano looks after the district attorney side. Yuki’s direct involvement puts her in the limelight and harms way. The authors add interesting twists and turns during one of the trials when Junie Moon’s conflicting testimonies are aggressively cross-examined.
Is there a link between the two cases and what can it be? We find the answers when Claire Washburn (chief medical examiner and Cindy Thomas (star crime reporter) join their partners.
Another classic James Patterson novel: quick brisk chapters, a sharp story line, an emotionally charged and shocking ending. If you like Patterson’s style, this one will capture your attention from the beginning.
Is it evident that I am a fan…..:)
