Synopsis

Your best friend

Lindsay Boxer is pregnant at last! But her work doesn't slow for a second. When millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down, she discovers that the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco's most untouchable criminals. And it was taken from her own department's evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer--even her closest friends.

Or a vicious killer?

Lindsay is called next to the most bizarre crime scene she's ever seen: two bodiless heads elaborately displayed in the garden of a world-famous actor. Another head is unearthed in the garden, and Lindsay realizes that the ground could hide hundreds of victims.

You won't know until the 11th hour

A reporter launches a series of vicious articles about the cases and Lindsay's personal life is laid bare. But this time she has no one to turn to--especially not Joe. 11TH HOUR is the most shocking, most emotional, and most thrilling Women's Murder Club novel ever.

The biggest thing that I have an issue with and what truly affected my rating the most is that there are so many damn story lines.

In the way of insight into human psychology, or at the very least, delicious escapism, this installment seems a bit half-hearted. That could be what happens when a series crosses into its second decade of life

It's easy to read a James Patterson-Maxine Paetro book, and it's always guaranteed to lock into you. Can't complain in the least about this, 11th Hour, their latest collaboration. Although, I have to say, it's very good, but not great.
