The 12th of Never — James Patterson

12th of Never (Women’s Murder Club)
by James Patterson

Well, he’s done it again! The 12th of Never was released on April 29, 2013 and hit #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list the week of May 12th in the #1 spot. We readers simply can’t get enough of Lindsay Boxer and the Women’s Murder Club Series mysteries.

What’s Happening in Lindsay’s World

I know I got my copy a couple of days after the release and veraciously read every word. We knew it was time for Lindsay to have the baby and, with her history, it couldn’t be a normal delivery! Patterson didn’t let us down. I won’t go into details and spoil it for you but the circumstances behind the delivery seemed to fit Boxer’s life to a T.

Of course, the other members of the Women’s Murder Club have a lot to deal with too in The 12th of Never.

Claire Washburn is being relieved of her duties as San Francisco’s Chief Medical Examiner when a body goes miss on her watch; Assistant D. A. Yuki Castellano has a case that even her boss, “Red Dog Parisi” doesn’t want to touch. A local defense attorney is on trial for the murder of his dismembered wife and missing (feared dead) daughter. This one takes all her talent!

Reporter, Cindy Thomas, is having problems with her live -in fiance and Lindsay’s partner, Rich Conklin. Will their relationship fall apart as quickly as it started?

And Lindsay herself, is dealing with Joe’s unemployment, seemingly precognitive dreamer of murders, an incarcerated serial killer with a crush on her and a brand new baby that is sick for some unknown reason. Talk about a candidate for postpartum depression!

If you are a fan at all of the Women’s Murder Club and/or Lindsay Boxer, you need to get this book! Even if you have never read a book in this series, you can easily follow along with the 12th of Never and end up feeling like you know the characters pretty well.
