James Patterson and Maxine Paetro- The 5th Horseman (Warner Books 2007) 3.25 Stars
When people start mysteriously dying at the Memorial Hospital, despite appearing to be quite healthy, Lindsay Boxer and the Women’s Murder Club aim to get to the bottom of it. The hospital seems content to cover things up and save their reputation, but Lieutenant Boxer won’t let them get away with that. The hunt is on and they won’t back down until they find the killer responsible for these deaths.
This book had a rather interesting introduction. It makes you curious about just what is going on and how the Women’s Murder Club is going to get involved. It kind of went up and down in the interest level for me though; this may be due to the lack of focus. Different storylines intertwining kind of makes it hard to focus and get into any of the storylines. Each one on its own would have been fine, but together it just did not work. The plot was good, with a few twists, but for the most part it was pretty predictable. The characters were well done though; this was a redeeming quality of the book. Overall this is not the best instalment in this series.
