Teaser Tuesday - 1/8/13

Photo credit: JamesPatterson.com

Before I got into urban fantasy, I was really, really into legal thrillers and murder mysteries. Still am, to an extent, but I haven't read as many of them recently. So I was pleasantly surprised to find I was actually two books behind on James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series. I finished 10th Anniversary this morning, and now I'm working on 11th Hour.

WARNING: Blurb contains spoilers for previous books in the series.


Lindsay Boxer is pregnant at last! But her work doesn't slow for a second. When millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down, she discovers that the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco's most untouchable criminals. And it was taken from her own department's evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer—even her closest friends.


Lindsay is called next to the most bizarre crime scene she's ever seen: two bodiless heads elaborately displayed in the garden of a world-famous actor. Another head is unearthed in the garden, and Lindsay realizes that the ground could hide hundreds of victims.


A reporter launches a series of vicious articles about the cases and Lindsay's personal life is laid bare. But this time she has no one to turn to—especially not Joe. 11TH HOUR is the most shocking, most emotional, and most thrilling Women's Murder Club novel ever.

The rules for Teaser Tuesday are:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
  • Then hit up Should Be Reading to add your link.

And the teaser:

Something had happened at that house. And if there really was a reason for everything, then she'd walked four miles this morning so that she would be the first reporter on the scene.

Also, you should check out this awesome bloghop hosted by Nick Wilford. He's compiling an anthology of stories about overcoming adversity to raise money to send his stepson to college. Check out the details here, and don't forget to post on February 4-5.
