Title: The 8th Confession

Author: James Patterson

Publisher: Little, Brown and Co.

Copyright: 2009

ISBN: 978-0-316-01876-0

Series or stand-alone: #8

Setting: San Francisco, CA

1st Sentence:

The old chrome-yellow school bus crawled south on Market Street at half past seven that May morning.


This is #8 in the Women's Murder Club books and someone is killing off the rich and elite and there are no signs or symptoms of foul play. In a side story, Cindy finds a homeless man beaten and shot several times and tries to find out who he is.

The book has an interesting choice of murder weapons.

I was amazed at how boring the cover was though. I suppose when you're James Patterson, you no longer have to put any effort into the packaging of a book because people are going to buy it. I get them all from my library so it's no money out of my pocket but I was a little disappointed in this. But I like Lindsay and crew so I will continue to read this series, boring cover or not. I just won't buy 'em.

I never buy his books either. Read them too fast and never reread. Like you said, much isn't done about the covers either. I need to get caught up on this series though.
