2nd Chance – James Patterson

2nd Chance – James Patterson

2nd chance


The sensational killings that have rocked San Francisco appear to be unrelated except in their brutality. But detective Lindsay Boxer senses there’s some thread connecting them all. She calls her friends in the Women’s Murder Club together to see if they can discover what it is. Surely some clue has been overlooked by their bosses and male colleagues. Working with Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas, Assistant District Attorney Jill Bernhardt, and medical examiner Claire Washburn, Lindsay discovers that there is indeed a link. The victims were of different ages, lived in different locations, and were killed with different weapons. But each had a close relative in a particular profession, a profession that sends a chill through Lindsay’s heart. The partners in the Women’s Murder Club realize that this killer is after something unspeakable, something deeper than revenge, and that the next target could be one of them. They deduce where the killer is likely to strike next and bait a trap that can’t be resisted. But if their calculation is wrong, the consequences will be lethal. And there will be no second chance.

My Thoughts

Once again, James Patterson takes us on a crazy adventure full of intrigue and drama. Just as things are settling down, and you think you’re on your way to figuring it out, another crazy twist pops out of the woodwork. These twists keep things interesting. These twists are intriguing. These twists are also highly annoying.

I like putting the pieces together. I like being the first to say “Aha! I’ve got it!” Apparently, I’m cocky and arrogant as hell. For the life of me, I could not piece this one together until it was laid out for me on a silver platter. This was both an unnerving, and humorous realization for me.

What this book has to offer is an incredible murder mystery that needs solving, as well as real life drama. Just because these are crime fighters, and one crime writer, does not mean that their personal lives are put on hold. Tensions run high in all aspects of this book – and it’s bloody brilliant. I can’t wait to see what the third one has in store for me.
