I've always loved reading and the crime/horror genre is one of my favourites. James Patterson is one of my favourite authors and he's wrote many best selling crime hits including a few that have been sent to our screens.
So far in the series we have followed the life of homicide seargant Lyndsay Boxer and her friends solving high profile murder cases. The Women's Murder Club consist of the four female protaganists of the series Lyndsay alongside Jill Bernhardt, Dr Claire Washburn and Cindy Thomas. The series is later joined by Yuki Castellano an assistant district attorny.
In this 8th book we are hooked into the case of an apparent street 'superhero' Bagman Jesus. Cindy is going to all ends to get a lifestyle story peice on him from the homeless after his gruesome execution that left him beyond recognition. Meanwhile Lyndsay and the rest of the SFPD are investigating the high profile case of the murders of serveral high society socialites whom have all seemingly died without anything being wrong with them - no posion, no wounds, no broken bones...who is stalking the celebrities?
Overall I really enjoyed this book and it lived up to my expectations of Patterson's earlier books in the series. The book does feature a few gruesome bits but is a good all rounder. There are also sexual references so I wouldn't advise this particular series for the younger generation.
8th Confession is on sale at Tesco as part of a buy one get one free promotion and can be purchased for £4.49 online at Amazon.co.uk at time of writing.
