Someone is killing the richest people in the city - and the Women's Murder Club will pay a high price for hunting him. At the party of the year, San Francisco's most glamorous couple is targeted by a killer - and it's the perfect murder. While Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the high-profile killings, a saintly street preacher is brutally executed. Reporter Cindy Thomas inquires into this neglected case and discovers the victim may have had very dark secrets.
As the search for two criminals tests the limits of the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay sees sparks fly between Cindy and Lindsay's partner, Detective Rich Conklin. The Club now faces its toughest challenge: Will love destroy all that the four friends have built?
Entre 1975 et 1987, Maxine Paetro a ete recruteur pour de nombreuses agences de publicite new-yorkaise. Elle a alors ecrit un essai sur cette experience avant de se lancer dans une premiere carriere litteraire, de 1986 a 1991, periode pendant laquelle elle a ecrit trois romans. Mais c'est en collaborant avec l'auteur de best-sellers James Patterson a son "Women Murder Club" qu'elle a acquis ses lettres de noblesse en litterature.
"A high-octane thriller that won't disappoint."
"Add some very well-written erotica that steams up the pages without hijacking the book, a narrative that flows right off the page and into your mind at breakneck speed, and what's not to love?...It doesn't get much better than this."
"The 8th Confession is Patterson (with Maxine Paetro) at his best, telling two equaling compelling stories and providing two equally satisfying resolutions."
"The ending was so mind blowing and sublime I immediately wished I had another Patterson novel to pick up..."
