Weeks before NYPD Detective Michael Bennett is to marry his long-time love, Mary Catherine, an assassin announces their presence in the city with a string of murders. All of the victims are young women. And each has been killed in a manner as precise as it was gruesome.

Bennett promises Mary Catherine that the case won't affect their upcoming wedding. But, as he struggles to connect the killings, Bennett may be walking into a deadly trap.

The Women's Murder Club face the fight of their lives in the latest thriller from the bestselling James Patterson series
THREE CITIES. THREE BULLETS. THREE VICTIMS.
Simultaneous murders hit LA, Chicago and San Francisco. SFPD Sergeant Lindsay Boxer is tasked with uncovering what links these precise and calculated killings. With the expertise of the Women's Murder Club at her disposal, she may be the only one who can solve these country-spanning killings.
But the truth proves more complicated than she feared. Lindsay discovers that the victims all excel in lucrative criminal activity. As the casualty list expands, fear and fascination with this shocking spree provoke debate across the country.
Are the killers villains or heroes?
And who will be next?
In the latest book in the globally bestselling Women's Murder Club series, Sergeant Lindsay Boxer vows to protect a twenty-year-old victim long enough for her to see her twenty-first birthday.
When a distraught mother pleads with San Francisco Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas to investigate the disappearance of her daughter Tara and baby granddaughter Lorrie, Cindy immediately loops in SFPD Sergeant Lindsay Boxer. The prime suspect is Tara's schoolteacher husband, Lucas Burke, but he tells a conflicting story that paints Tara as a wayward wife, not a missing person.
While the city's chief medical examiner, Claire Washburn, harbours theories that run counter to the police investigation of the Burke case, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano sizes up Lucas as a textbook domestic offender - until he puts forward a theory of his own that could connect the dots on a constellation of killings.
As the case grows into something far bigger than any of them could have imagined, the four friends will need each other to help unpick the truth from a web of lies.
A scandalous double homicide opens the psychological case files on Alex Cross . . .
When a glamorous socialite and high school principal are found murdered, lying half naked in a car, the shocking double homicide dominates tabloid headlines.

While Cross's former Metro Homicide partner John Sampson tracks Christopher's final movements, Cross and FBI Special Agent Ned Mahoney travel to Alabama to investigate Kay's past. They discover that although Kay had many enemies, none of them had a full motive.
In a world of trouble, corruption, and secrets, Cross is left facing a desperate choice between breaking a trust and losing his way . . .

Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex is impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out alone to track his new prey and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home, too. His ex-fiancée, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life - and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.
