12th OF NEVER
A New Women's Murder Club Novel 
BY JAMES PATTERSON
& MAXINE PAETRO

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:
ALEX CROSS needs to watch out! As my number one favorite James Patterson character, new Cross books are always eagerly awaited and enjoyed once read. However, Cross is getting stiff competition from Lindsay Boxer and her crew in THE WOMEN’S MURDER CLUB series. In the Murder Club’s latest installment, 12th OF NEVER, Patterson and Maxine Paetro have given readers another engaging and riveting novel. In fact, I wager to say that 12th OF NEVER is the best of the series to date!

You do not have had to read the rest of the series to enjoy the book either. It, like all in the series, stands very well on its own. Listening to the audio book was a real treat as well as I didn’t have to stop reading just because I was doing something else. It is such a page turner that you can’t stop reading the exciting short chapters that encourage you to always read “just one more”!

With Lindsay Boxer now a new mom, the story adds that extra tenderness and romance to it in just the right dosage to make it tug at your heart as well as worry about her even more. The major case that she is working on involves a serial killer with a touch of eccentricity to it. An English professor, Dr. Perry Judd, has revealed to the police that he dreams of murders and then they happen. His dreams are spot on for the most part as he can describe the who, what, where, and how of each murder. His dreams are patiently listened to at first but when the murders actually take place, the San Francisco Police Department springs into action. How can this be? Each time, they investigate Judd, he always has a solid alibi. Boxer and partner, Rich Conklin, are stumped. All this is happening at the same time that Lindsay and Joe are dealing with a fussy baby who finally gets a diagnosis no parent wants to hear.

Of course, all of the club members are involved in 12th OF NEVER as D. A. Yuki Castellano is trying a huge profile murder case that should be a slam dunk until a surprise witness appears! Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Claire Washburn is about to autopsy a murder victim, who just happens to be the girlfriend of a football celebrity, when the body comes up missing. Claire is devastated and the puzzling missing body is one that gives readers a real tough time trying to figure out what happened. The mystery with Cindy Thomas, our newspaper reporter, is that as Rich Conklin’s fiancée she should be happily in love but something is going on that changes all that by the end of the story. What that is will all play out as readers will see eventually.

Add in just one more tiny detail (yes, it doesn’t stay tiny very long), a jailed serial killer wants to chime in on the current murders but will only “work” with Lindsay. Lindsay has her hands full with the current serial killer/psychic professor case and a sick baby so this is the last thing she needs.

12th OF NEVER is a heart stopping, exciting read and without spoiling it, let me just say it is the best ending Patterson has written for one of these books ever! Love it or hate it, you will be caught up in 12th OF NEVER and its mysterious climax is one you will talk about long after you finish that last page

Your review makes me definitely want to read this book. I already knew that all his books can be read as standalones. But your statement is that you think this is the best of the series to date. I also love that all the club members are in this book. That is something that I love in a series. It would be like going to a review.

I loved your review. But, you always give a great Patterson review. We seem to agree on his books. It sounds like another hit. I've missed this crew and look forward to reading about them again.

The fact that this book stands on it's own is a big plus since I have missed a couple of the last ones in this series---also you gave it such a glowing review that it makes me want to read/listen to it.
