As the holidays approach, Detective Lindsay Boxer and her friends in the Women's Murder Club have much to celebrate. Crime is down. The medical examiner's office is quiet. Even the courts are showing some Christmas spirit. And the news cycle is so slow that journalist Cindy Thomas is on assignment to tell a story about the true meaning of the season for San Francisco. Then a fearsome criminal known only as "Loman" seizes control of the headlines. He is planning a deadly surprise for Christmas morning. And he has commissioned dozens of criminal colleagues to take actions that will mask his plans. All that Lindsay and the SFPD can figure out is that Loman's greed -- for riches, for bloodshed, for attention -- is limitless. Solving crimes never happens on schedule, but as this criminal mastermind unleashes credible threats by the hour, the month of December is upended for the Women's Murder Club. Avoiding tragedy is the only holiday miracle they seek.

The plot didn't really make much sense to me. At the end, the reason for the extravagant crime spree wasn't really explained. The story seemed to drag and get a bit too confusing. I think the authors think that dragging the story out and being many pages long means it is a
good book to read. I was disappointed that I wasted my time reading this book. Mr. Patterson you need to improve your writing!

The reference librarian said that this book would be a quick read. She wasn't kidding. One of the better "Murder Club" books and it kept the blood pumping from beginning to end. Cheers!
