When a horrifying attack leaves one of the four members of the Women's Murder Club struggling for her life, the others fight to keep a madman behind bars before anyone else is hurt. And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department run flat-out to stop a series of kidnappings that has electrified the city: children are being plucked off the streets together with their nannies--but the kidnappers aren't demanding ransom. Amid uncertainty and rising panic, Lindsay juggles the possibility of a new love with an unsolvable investigation, and the knowledge that one member of the club could be on the brink of death. And just when everything appears momentarily under control, the case takes a terrifying turn, putting an entire city in lethal danger. Lindsay must make a choice she never dreamed she'd face--with no certainty that either outcome has more than a prayer of success.
The Women's Murder Club is the latest series from James Patterson, the bestselling author of STEP ON A CRACK. The Club is composed of four crime-fighting women: Yuki is an attorney, Claire a medical examiner, Cindy a reporter, and Lindsay a detective. Once a week the women meet and put their heads together to try and solve the latest crimes in San Francisco. In THE 6th TARGET, Claire is suddenly shot , and the girls are hot on the case. The plot thickens when several children and their nannies are abducted simultaneously. As the women race to solve the crimes and bring Claire's assailant to justice, Patterson drops in his usual twists and surprises, making for the kind of engrossing read his thriller fans have come to expect.
