8th Confession by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

Rating: 3/5 Stars

A silent killer is on the loose in San Francisco, killing the elite members of society. These deaths look like anything but murder but these people are too healthy to be dying of natural causes. This makes Claire, of the women's murder club, nervous and determined to find the cause of death. In the meantime, the brutal death of one of San Fransisco lowest members of society, the street people, is causing a ruckus because no one seems to care that this man is dead. As a favor to Cindy, who is reporting on the fact that the death of a street person goes unpunished, Lindsay uses her free time to look into this death. Between Cindy and Lindsay's investigations, they start to wonder that maybe this man isn't as wonderful as everyone on the street is making him out to be. As usual, there is a third story intertwined with a trial and Yuki, but it really takes a back burner to the other things happening in the story.

As my first book completed in the month of march, this story seemed a bit fantastical at times, but it was enjoyable to read all the same. All the women in the murder club are present and the women's murder club is mentioned and all the members are present but they didn't really come together to solve a crime as in the past. Some new people are introduced to the group and some side drama occurs with Cindy and Lindsay and Yuki and her new boyfriend. All in all, I am enjoying this series and will continue on. I like all the characters and think the authors do a great job with character development and believability.
