Description: 2nd Chance reconvenes the Women's Murder Club, four friends (a detective, a reporter, an assistant district attorney, and a medical examiner) who used their networking skills, feminine intuition, and professional wiles to solve a baffling series of murders in 1st to Die. This time, the murders of two African Americans, a little girl and an old woman, bear all the signs of a serial killer for Lindsay Boxer, newly promoted to lieutenant of San Francisco's homicide squad. But there's an odd detail she finds even more disturbing: both victims were related to city cops. A symbol glimpsed at both murder scenes leads to a racist hate group, but the taunting killer strikes again and again, leaving deliberate clues and eluding the police ever more cleverly. In the meantime, each of the women has a personal stake at risk--and the killer knows who they are.
Review: Let me start by saying I almost did not read this book. I read the first book and it did nothing for me. I expected the same from this one. Well lets give the series a second chance.I am glad I did. I was quite surprised, because of my preconceived notions it took me a little while to get interested in the book, but once I did it hooked me.... I was done. Lindsay is well developed character as are in this book. Patterson takes you on a wild ride with twist and turns that will keep you reading till the end and then you can breath again.
