Another very good audio book by Maxine Paetro published under James Patterson Narrated by Caroline McCormick who did a fantastic job as always As Lieutenant Lindsey Boxer leads one investigation into a string of mysterious patient deaths, her friends, head ME Clair Washburn, Attorney Yuki Castellano, and top journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle, Cindy Tomas, do their best to hunt down a faceless, merciless killer At the same time, an explosive court battle ensues between the hospital Another very good audio book by Maxine Paetro published under James Patterson Narrated by Caroline McCormick who did a fantastic job as always As Lieutenant Lindsey Boxer leads one investigation into a string of mysterious patient deaths, her friends, head ME Clair Washburn, Attorney Yuki Castellano, and top journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle, Cindy Tomas, do their best to hunt down a faceless, merciless killer At the same time, an explosive court battle ensues between the hospital s esteemed medical staff and the many citizens of San Francisco who have lost loved ones, patients who were given the wrong medications which lead to their deaths In both cases, the hospital administration is determined to shield its reputation at all costs I have no knowledge regarding this kind of situation but I do think it s fair to say that it does happen To the extent that it happens in this novel is something that I d really rather not even try to imagine Could if happen Maybe, maybe not Either way both situations are terrifying and each will raise the hairs on the back of your neck The basis of this book regarding poor patient care, medical errors, and especially the medication errors, even with the so called foolproof medication dispensing machines that need a pass code to gain access, is in fact, VERY, VERY REAL But nothing is foolproof, as we all know Overall this was a great book If you are familiar, as I am, with the inner workings of the medical profession there are some small improbabilities between this book, which is fiction, and the real world of hospital patient care I was somewhat bothered by some of the events regarding medication errors especially the ones resulting in fatalities But this is only because I m a nurse and have extensive experience with the nitty gritty details of patient care, especially when it comes to the administration of medications to patients However, even with my misgivings of this topic it didn t prevent me from fully enjoying it It s loaded with suspense, the pace is fast, and the ending is a beauty The revelation of the killer s was a big surprise Even with all my experience, I still didn t work it out In the end, the identity of killer was definitely a realistic possibility Very unnerving to me That s for sure Lindsey and her friends will no doubt be up to their necks in trouble again in the sixth in the series, The 6th Target And I can t wait I have no reservations in recommending this book This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Once again, Patterson created a great novel that I just couldn t put down Not the best, but clearly toward the top of the list with the Women s Murder Club Series.This one kept me guessing till the very end The trial was the larger chunk of the novel than the actual murder mystery, even though they were intertwined I enjoyed the change of pace with the trial and hearing the opening and closing argument and cross examinations.Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed by the ending I wanted to k Once again, Patterson created a great novel that I just couldn t put down Not the best, but clearly toward the top of the list with the Women s Murder Club Series.This one kept me guessing till the very end The trial was the larger chunk of the novel than the actual murder mystery, even though they were intertwined I enjoyed the change of pace with the trial and hearing the opening and closing argument and cross examinations.Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed by the ending I wanted to knowabout how they figured out who was the night walker The credit is given to Boxer in the end, but they never indicate how she figured it out, or followed the killer to her new position at her new hospital It just seemed like such an abrupt ending This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I had a feeling that doctor was involved in it somehow, but that shocked me about the nurse. I thought this book was just okay It was easy to read, quick and the plots seemed to be a bit far fetched I suppose as a nurse I was really bothered by some of the arguments in the trial There arethan 2 checks for drug administration, not just room and bed number A nurse must verify that you are giving the drug to the right person by checking the name band Then the argument that it takes awhile after discharge for a nurse to know a patient has gone home is preposterous It is the nurs I thought this book was just okay It was easy to read, quick and the plots seemed to be a bit far fetched I suppose as a nurse I was really bothered by some of the arguments in the trial There arethan 2 checks for drug administration, not just room and bed number A nurse must verify that you are giving the drug to the right person by checking the name band Then the argument that it takes awhile after discharge for a nurse to know a patient has gone home is preposterous It is the nurse that discharges a patient, and as soon as that patient is gone the chart is removed, everything is removed You don t give report on a patient that is gone, and nurses will not give meds to a patient they have not had report on.Honestly, I like authors that do research, and good research, and this book has none of that.Watch out for the sex and language I m not sure I will read anyPatterson books I was given these a few years ago and just gotten around to them This was the first I read Not sure I m that thrilled with him as an author This is the first James Patterson novel for me This was a gripping, hard to put down book Interesting plot, great characters and crisp dialogue I like the use of short and punchy chapters There were 139 chapters of about 1 2 to 2 pages each Very effective way to keep the story moving I had always heard good things about Patterson and after having read this story I can now see what all those accolades are all about He now has a spot on my favorite authors list. *FREE ↱ The 5th Horseman ⇴ It is a wild race against time as Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer and the newest member of the Women s Murder Club, attorney Yuki Castellano, lead an investigation into a string of mysterious patient deaths and reveal a hospital administration determined to shield its reputation at all costs And while the hospital wages an explosive court battle that grips the entire nation, the Women s Murder Club hunts for a merciless killer among its esteemed medical staff The newest addition to the top selling new mystery series takes the Women s Murder Club to the most terrifying heights of suspense they have yet to encounter THE TH HORSEMAN proves once again that James Patterson is the page turningest author in the game right now San Francisco Chronicle This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I didn t like this one nearly as much as I have the other Women s Murder Club books There seemed to be way too much going on, and I never really got a real, complete story The whole thing with Dr Garza just felt off He wasn t a nice guy by any means, but it felt like his crime was in there just so Lindsay could feel justified about her mistrust of him, rather than he just rubbed her the wrong way She had to be right about her hunch, even when she was wrong It was mentioned over and over I didn t like this one nearly as much as I have the other Women s Murder Club books There seemed to be way too much going on, and I never really got a real, complete story The whole thing with Dr Garza just felt off He wasn t a nice guy by any means, but it felt like his crime was in there just so Lindsay could feel justified about her mistrust of him, rather than he just rubbed her the wrong way She had to be right about her hunch, even when she was wrong It was mentioned over and over again that Garza left other hospitals under suspicious circumstances, but that was never really gone into In fact, there was pretty much no investigation of Garza, at all The conclusion of the hospital killer just felt rushed, and it really didn t do anything other than show how super awesome Lindsay is without telling us how she figured it out at all The Car Girl killer could have gone a lot better, too When we finally got to the culprit, we knew absolutely nothing about them, the twist of Cherry Ken came out of nowhere, and none of it was explained The guy fessed up and then we left that entirely and never thought of it again.I m also not sure I buy the way Yuki fits into the group She was tossed in when she helped out Lindsay, but honestly, she has the feel of the new girl that the others aren t really sure fits in, except that the way it s written, we re supposed to think she s one of the girls There s distance between them, and even when Cindy notices that Yuki doesn t look good, she doesn t really bother to tell any of the other women, and she sure doesn t really try to talk to her about it Yuki s place in the club just feels pushed instead of natural.There was just too much going on in this book for anything to get satisfactory attention Definitely not the best of the Women s Murder Club I hadn t read a Patterson in a while when I picked this up and it immediately brought back all of the reasons that I like his books.After a bit of a let down for me with 4th of July, the Women s Murder Club is back in fine form Patterson s characters are all likeable and easy to root for The writing style is what I would call very comfortable and the storyline moves along at the usual Patterson frenetic pace Once I start, I usually don t want to put one of his books down and The 5th Horseman I hadn t read a Patterson in a while when I picked this up and it immediately brought back all of the reasons that I like his books.After a bit of a let down for me with 4th of July, the Women s Murder Club is back in fine form Patterson s characters are all likeable and easy to root for The writing style is what I would call very comfortable and the storyline moves along at the usual Patterson frenetic pace Once I start, I usually don t want to put one of his books down and The 5th Horseman is no exception.I read a lot over lunch at work and another caveat of reading his novels is that the chapters are usually short and it s always easy to find a place to stop even if you REALLY don t want to Anyway, I guess this isn t a review for The 5th Horseman exactly, butof a review of James Patterson novels in general He writes books that are incredibly fun and engaging to read and I would recommend picking one up If you can start at the beginning of one of his series, that would be best, but another caveat of his writing is that he does a great job of filling the reader in on what s going on, so if you pick up a series in the middle, you re still ok
