Description:It's been a long time since we've seen a bestselling author of Patterson's clout credit an assistant author on the cover, and good for Patterson for that. The credit is deserved. This is Patterson's richest, most engaging novel since When the Wind Blows and, as the second in his Women's Murder Club series (after 1st to Die), yet more evidence that this prolific writer can roam beyond Alex Cross with style and success.
Verdict: I never thought James Patterson could write in a woman's voice, but he done so with '2nd Chance' and succeeded. '2nd Chance' is the second book in his series, 'Women's Murder Club.' There is a big difference between this series and the Alex Cross series. But with Patterson's mastery of writing it another great series in its right.
Lindsay Boxer is back, albeit somewhat bitter and disillusioned, but with the onset of what looks to be a new serial murder spree, she is ready, along with the rest of her cohorts, to find out who is murdering African Americans with contacts to her own police department.
The chapters are short but pithy, each leaving you with a desire to read the next, and the next, and so on.
It is a great book for Mr. Patterson, and I am looking forward to the next one in this series.
