    Another great read!

    Really hard to put down! Loved the two plots running together. Full of the usual suspense and twists. I never expected the ending that came.

    ANOTHER EXCELLENT PURCHASE!!!!!

    THE FIFTH HORSEMAN is, unsurprisingly, the fifth book of the immensely popular series of crime fighting novels featuring the individual heroines that comprise the San Francisco based WOMENS MURDER CLUB. It is a highly original, very entertaining, suspenseful, moderately entertaining way to spend three hours of your life in typical James Patterson / Maxine Paetro fashion. Which means, of course, that the book will gift the reader with plenty of action, drama, and short chapters with impossibly addictive cliffhangers so steep that you are too scared to look down. The book starts out (naturally enough) with a murder - a beautiful, petite young woman, about to hit her prime in life, is cruelly taken from this world in immediately mysterious circumstances. The body is found in a late model Cadillac, located in an underground carpark. She is clearly dead, but with no signs of forced entry into the car, no signs of assault or modus operandi, it is less than obvious how and when the murder took place. One complaint i have with the story telling is the habit of the girls to refer to the book’s first victim as ’The Caddy Girl’, for obvious reasons. I know this is a work of fiction, but i don't believe those working in any aspect of the legal profession would be so crass, and so disrespectful of the victim of a heinous crime as to refer to the victim in such a manner. I find it offensive, and I am as removed from the action as it is possible to get! Examination of the corpse by the appropriate expert - and, naturally enough, one of the members of THE CLUB - soon reveals the reason for the death and the interest of readers right around the world will be piqued as their interest in the book, and the case, launches itself into hyperspace. Fellow Club Member, and top shelf lawyer Yuki’s mom collapses on the streets of San Fran early on the book, and with a simple case of angina mixed up with a very minor stroke, she is kept in the supermassive San Francisco Municipal Hospital for a short stay for treatment, observation and full recovery. Hopefully, she will turn out to be one of the lucky ones. I say that, because there is a civil action against this hospital - and one Doctor in particular - for multiple cases of gross misconduct. And the Doctor in question - you guessed it - is the Doctor in charge of caring for, and medicating over, Yuki’s mom. So hold your breath, fellow book lovers. This is going to be one wild ride. Having just completed reading and reviewing book fifteen of this amazing series, there are one or two spoilers in the newer book which take some of the fun out of reading the backlog of this series, but that is just my bad luck for joining the fun so late in the game. THE FIFTH HORSEMAN is a strong release in this series and as I have already mentioned, it is at turns gripping, suspenseful, and hugely action packed. What more can we ask for in a modern day crime thriller by two writers working perfectly in tandem? Four stars for an excellent purchase in more ways than one. Bye for now.
