Review: 12th of Never

12th of Never (Women's Murder Club, #12)
12th of Never by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
Publisher: Century
Release Date: 14/02/13
Pages: 416
Genre: Crime

It's finally time! Detective Lindsay Boxer is in labour--while two killers are on the loose.

Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby is born! But after only a week at home with her new daughter, Lindsay is forced to return to work to face two of the biggest cases of her career.

A rising star football player for the San Francisco 49ers is the prime suspect in a grisly murder. At the same time, Lindsay is confronted with the strangest story she's ever heard: An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a violent murder and he's convinced is real. Lindsay doesn't believe him, but then a shooting is called in-and it fits the professor's description to the last detail.

Lindsay doesn't have much time to stop a terrifying future from unfolding. But all the crimes in the world seem like nothing when Lindsay is suddenly faced with the possibility of the most devastating loss of her life.

Lindsay is back! But there's no rest for the wicked - soon after giving birth to a gorgeous little girl Lindsay is lured back into work with possibly her biggest murder cases yet. She has to deal with a crazy professor who thinks he can predict murders that haven't happened yet and a high profile case involving an american football player who's girlfriend has turned up dead. Lindsay has to learn how to juggle her new family life with the job very quickly. With the help of her friends, will Lindsay be able to strike a balance before devastating losses happen in either of her worlds?

We tend to follow the girls of the Women's Murder Club separately in this book. As well as following Lindsay we see Yuki dealing with a court case involving a man accused of murdering his wife and child, Claire is facing suspension after a body goes missing from her office and poor Cindy is having serious relationship problems with Rich. I missed the girls meeting up regularly in this book, there was not a lot of communication between them. I always love it when the girls come together, they are all really supportive of each other and can often solve cases with each other's help but they didn't tend to do much sharing in 12th of Never.

I do enjoy the short chapters that James Patterson and Maxine Paetro create in their books. I find it very engaging and a lot easier to keep up with the story line. I also like how the short chapters allows Patterson and Paetro to switch viewpoints, it keeps the pace of the book high whilst peaking the reader's interest level. Overall 12th of Never was good and well worth a read but not my favourite of the Women's Murder Club books.

3/5 Stars

My Song Choice Drops of Jupiter by Train
To me this song is about getting out there into the big bad world, and all the girls in this book do just that.
