Pressestimmen

"Those who haven't read any of the novels in the Women's Murder Club series are cheating themselves." (BookReporter.com )

"I can't believe how good Patterson is, whether he's doing a Washington police yarn or traveling a different road with a female narrator. He is always on the mark. I have never begun a Patterson book and been able to put it down." (USA Today Larry King )

"Patterson and Paetro are at their best here, weaving a number of plots together to create a novel that dips and flows across genre lines.... A series that shows no signs of fatigue or flagging." (BookReporter.com )

Niemand liest James Patterson wegen der ausgefeilten, tiefgründigen Charakterisierungen...Zumindest ich erwarte nichts dergleichen, wenn ich einen seiner Thriller lese. James Patterson ist, finde ich, ein bisschen wie Chips essen, man weiß, die Zutaten sind billig und ungesund, aber die Würze ist so lecker, dass man nicht damit aufhören kann.
Dies vorangestellt, muss ich zu dem neunten Buch in dieser Reihe sagen, dass ich enttäuscht bin. Irgendwie geht Herrn Patterson und seiner Co-Autorin zunehmend die Luft aus. Während der Fall in 9th Judgement durchaus noch in Ordnung ist, sogar die Mörder und ihre Umgebung gelungen geschildert werden, hapert es bei den Hauptcharakteren gewaltig. Lindsey Boxer ist nur ein Schatten ihrerselbst, Claire Washburn kommt kaum, und wenn immer gleich, vor, die Geschichte zwischen Cindy und Conklin ist total unglaubwürdig und passt gar nicht, und am Ende, wenn die Fälle schon gelöst sind, lässt sich Herr Patterson für zwei Seiten noch etwas einfallen, das nach seiner Auflösung nur total aufgesetzt, unnötig und albern ist. Mich hat es völlig genervt und verärgert.
Um bei der Chips-Analogie zu bleiben - unter den sowieso schon nur mit Maßen zu geniessenden Chips ist 9th Judgement wie eine der fiesen Sorten vom Billig-Discounter: es bleibt ein übler Nachgeschmack!

Von CF VINE-PRODUKTTESTER am 4. Juni 2011

Über den Inhalt lässt sich nicht viel berichten: Irgendein Irrer, der Mütter und ihre kleinen Kinder mordend, durch San Fransisco streift und ein zweiter Handlungsstrang um eine Diebin, die sich vornehmlich reiche Mitbürger aussucht. So richtig packen diese beiden Geschichten nicht und ich habe mich das eine oder andere Mal erwischt, wie ich auf meinem Kindle die "Seite-vor-Taste" gedrückt habe, ohne einige Absätze zu lesen. Und was glauben Sie, es hat nicht geschadet.

Die Figuren wirken flach. Alles was Patterson in den vergangenen 8 Bänden dieser Reihe um Sergant Boxer und ihre Freundinnen gestrickt hat, ist verloren. Nix. Es spielen nur die beiden Handlungsstränge und Boxer eine Rolle. Und bei Boxer eigentlich auch nicht die Person, sondern nur ihre polizeiliche Ermittlungstätigkeit. Damit ist dieser Band wie ein herkömmlicher Krimi. Was ihn ausgemacht hat, die Gespräche der Freundinnen, wie sie sich gegenseitig geholfen haben, ist dahin. Schade.

Ist das Buch deshalb schlecht? Ich bin hin und her gerissen. Abgesehen von meinem Vorblättern schreibt Patterson wieder einen recht schnellen Stil, der durch seine - ich habe sie bereits lieb gewonnen - kurzen Abschnitte noch gesteigert wird. Denn man denkt sich immer wieder, dass nächste Kapitel lese ich auch noch schnell. Ich gebe dem Buch vier Sterne, weil's ein netter Zeitvertreib ist, der sich gut und schnell lesen lässt und hier und da recht spannend ist sowie aufgrund der bisher außerordentlichen Leistungen von Patterson. Aber ehrlich, wenn man das Buch nicht gelesen hat, hat man auch nichts verpasst.

Mir gefallen die Fälle und ich lese die Bücher, sofern grade wieder eines heraußen ist, meistens im Urlaub. Ich lese nur die englische Ausgabe, da mir das Warten auf die deutsche Übersetzung a) zu blöd ist und b) das Buch dann oft nicht so gut ist. Alles in allem ist die Reihe sehr empfehlenswert.

Nun haben wir 9 Bücher dieser Serie und wie bei allen Serien, sind manche Bücher mehr gelungen und spannender als andere. Wenn man Patterson mag und die vorherigen Bücher gelesen hat, ist dieses Buch in jedem Fall für den Strand oder die Couch bei Regen gut geeignet. Wer dieses Genre mag, wird auch mit diesem Buch zufrieden sein.

4.0 von 5 Sternen My Judgement...Brilliant! 26. April 2010
Von I Like Cheese - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've read all of the Women's Murder Club novels - some were excellent (books 1-5 and book 7), some were awful (books 6 and 8) and I'm so glad I went with my gut on this one and bought it as I thoroughly enjoyed it, in fact I'd go as far as saying that this was my favourite of the whole series.

Like most of the others in the series, there's two main cases going on - the first is a psychopath known as "The Lipstick Killer" who is terrorising San Francisco by murdering mothers and their babies on the street and at random. The next is a cat burglar called "Hello Kitty" who is being framed for murder when a well known movie star shoots his wife following a robbery at their home. Lindsey and the gang have their hands full in this one, so there isn't a slow moment. Some of the scenes were so exciting I was flying through the pages as I just couldn't stop reading - a quick hour's read turned into a whole evening's binge and I had the book finished in 4 hours! Some bits of the story were a little predictable, maybe because I read a lot of James Patterson novels so I am very familiar with his formulas now, but that didn't stop it from being one of the best I've read from him for a while.

One thing I noticed in this book was that the main attention has been turned to Lindsay again, which is great as some of the other characters - Cindy and Yuki in particular - make the stories in the previous novels quite dull and I find these characters to be too arrogant and generally annoying, so didn't enjoy the ones when they were in the spotlight so much.

Although it is the ninth in the series, this could still be picked up by someone new to the Women's Murder Club novels and easily get into the characters and the gripping story. Fans of the series, like myself, should find this very satisfying and will have their faith in the series restored after the below average attempts over the past few years (excluding 7th Heaven (The Women's Murder Club)). I definitely recommend reading this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This series is always fresh and continues to be exciting 26. April 2010
Von Mary Gramlich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Sergeant Lindsay Boxes and her team of co-workers, friends and outside influences are battling two horrific crime scenes simultaneous. There is only so much of Lindsay to go around which is why she has surrounded herself with great friends and women who are as supportive as they are brutally honest. This time though Lindsay is truly out there on her own as she battles a high profile robbery turned homicide and serial killer who is targeting young mothers and their babies.

While the burglary seems to be part of a string performed by the Hello Kitty bandit the question of why someone got killed this time is puzzling. The husband is an actor that may be putting on a great performance for the police as his story is so well rehearsed that it might not be believable and his excuses too flimsy. But the truly baffling crime spree seems to be coming from someone who is shooting women and their children leaving cryptic messages at each crime scene with the same letters but in different order. Nothing matches anything ever witnessed before and Lindsay is willing to put everything she has on the line to get this one closed even take her clothes off and prance around just to prove to the killer she is serious about stopping him.

While the murder of the rich socialite gets the attention the serial killer is escalating his behavior and making less sense at each crime scene. Lindsay tries to stay on top of both fronts but when the demands from the serial killer make it seem like he is less about vengeance and more about money she turns her attention in that direction because this person is truly more dangerous.

But just as things seem to be completely out of control the Hello Kitty bandit calls Lindsay and confesses to the burglaries but not the murder and convinces Lindsay that something is not adding up on any front with any of the husband's story. Yet just when you think nothing can get stranger it does and in the minute it takes to open a package or ring a doorbell everything explodes and goes into every other direction you thought it might lead.

Pay attention readers because this book moves fast, furious and in 10 different directions which lead you on a journey of unexpected conclusion. While this series has every woman plays a specific and critical role in this book Lindsay is the character that plays out as the lead. She is running two cases, trying to manage a personal life that seems to finally come together and dealing with departmental politics something she is not particularly good at. Her friends are there to keep the storyline flavorful and add some touches of honesty but overall Lindsay shines as the one woman in the group that does hold her own among everyone.

3.0 von 5 Sternen "To make a judgment, we need the answers." Michael Woods 14. September 2010
Von michael a. draper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
3 1/2 stars

My rating on this novel was on the plus side of three so I gave it a 3 1/2 star rating.

The Prologue of the novel reveals a cat burglar who is stealing valuable jewels from Casey Dowling, the wife of movie star, Marcus Dowling. As the thief leaves, she knocks over the console table and wakes the Dowlings. Their marriage was on the rocks and Markus realizes that he has a chance to murder his wife and ger away with it. He kills Casey and blames the thief.

Another case involves a psychopatathic killer whose motto is "Women and Children First." He kills women with their babies and then, needlessly, kills the baby. He becomes know an The Lipstick Killer and terrorizes San Francisco.

Detective Lindsay Boxer of the homicide division is working with her partner, Rick Conklin, to catch both killers.

As the killer of the woman and baby strikes again, Det. Boxer intensifies her search but is hindered by the lack of witnesses.

Spending more time together, Lindsay and her partner, Rick find their emotions toward each other growing and they have difficulty concentrating on the cases and not giving in to their feelings toward each other.

Lindsay is an well described character who is easy to like with her courage and determination. The plot had plenty of action but was predictable.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Weak and trite... 29. September 2010
Von J.L. McHale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
It's after reading books like this that I'm ashamed to admit I still read James Patterson's work. Lindsay Boxer, a character who was once strong and heroic, has become soft by this installment of the Women's Murder Club. It was insulting to see that she's now being portrayed as a stereotypical female - weak and wishy-washy - in many scenes. The other three members of the club were barely present at all, and they certainly didn't help solve the case when they were there. Plus, the actual cases involved in this book were laughable at best.

First, I really dislike when a mystery novel reveals the killer/bad guy early on and we spend the rest of the book watching the story unfold from parallel perspectives. Second, the scenarios in this story (particularly the one involving the cat burglar) were so far-fetched that I couldn't mentally suspend reality enough to ever enjoy the story. Third, there was no solid resolution. This would be fine if it also appeared that the story could be continued (I love a good hunt for a serial killer), but I feel that too much has been revealed for this plot to continue in further installments. Frankly, I hope I'm right in thinking that way and that a continuation has not already been planned.

Very, VERY disappointing read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen The 9th Judgment--audio 3. Mai 2010
Von Aukake Jaye - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I could hardly wait for this book to be released and was not disappointed. The combinations of an attorney, a detective, medical examiner, and a journalist make these stories interesting from all angles. Lindsey Boxer and crew are among my favorite fictional characters. Cindy the journalist does get on my nerves though. She is pushy, arrogrant, and insecure. It is an okay book if you are Women's Murder Mystery Club fan. If you are, you will recognize the formula and writing pattern. Some aspects of the story are predictable. Clues being leaked, the medical examiner's disgust, and the attorney's threats to put someone away are common. However the murders of the babies was nauseating and unfortunately too real for me. Some nut will pick up on this and duplicate it in real life. I listen to these stories for escapism and excitement. I will watch television, read the newspaper, or listen to the radio if I want to know about murder. That is my issue though and not a reflection of the authors'writing. I know the content of Patterson's work. He has to include some possible or realistic touches to keep the stories plausible.

This story was a fast listen. Completed it in a couple of days while preparing meals, doing housework, yardwork, etc. The narrator who is usually good was particularly annoying with this story. This time she sounded she was testifying--too much like her character on her television series. The pauses in between the chapters were too long...almost disarming. I though that my player was defective.
