    One thought on “3rd Degree”

    1. "3rd Degree" by James Patterson is the third book in the Women's Murder Club series. Having read the previous two I was looking forward to this one.Unfortunately I've ended up skipping chapters just so I didn't have to record it as unfinished. I found it very disappointing, the plot within the storyline was boring and the female characters just weren't the same - Claire especially just wasn't her normal bubbly strong self. I've read other readers reviews and it still seems to have a good followi [...]

    2. This book was all cheese.The story line was cheese. The dialogue was cheese.And the romance was mega cheese. But, let's face it: most of us aren't reading these novels for the literary brilliance.The Women's Murder Club series is my favourite to read of Patterson's. They are fast and entertainings, including all the cheese.I like to make a game out of taking a shot every time one of the female characters says something no women would say to another women, even if they are best friends. Seriously [...]

    3. Another excellent installment of Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson and Andrew Gross.Enjoyed it just as much as the first time I listened to it on Audible audio book. Narrator Carolyn McCormick is pretty good, too. Very sad ending, though.

    4. James Patterson is basically running a mystery novel factory, and it shows in this book. The novel goes through the motions acceptably enough--there are clues and ratcheting tension and figures come back from the past and deaths of people close to the protagonist and a love interest. But the entire thing feels rather formulaic and thin.Somehow, despite shocking revelations and stunning returns from the dead, you're never quite shocked or stunned. There isn't enough of an emotional connection est [...]

    5. I got to the part where Jill-the-scapegoat's body was just found and I rolled my eyes and gave up. Not even the actual mystery part of the story makes me care enough to keep going.This is some seriously lazy writing and I am done with this series.The plot - terrorists trying to save the world from itself - is interesting enough for a formulaic suspense/mystery novel. It's the killing of the characters, and I don't mean in the literal sense of Jill, that is just unbearable.Claire, my favorite, di [...]

    6. 3rd degree by James Patterson and just wow It was amazing. This is the third book in the women’s murder club ,I loved the first one it was amazing The second book, while I loved I didn’t really get into it as much as the first and then there was this one it was shocking. Not in a bad way in a good way. It had me so shocked James Patterson books can do that to you. They are really quick reads and have so many twists and turns leaving you wanting to read more. On the front cover it says “one [...]

    7. Στο τρίτο βιβλίο της σειράς με τη Γυναικεία Λέσχη Φόνων, το Σαν Φρανσίσκο δέχεται τρομοκρατικά χτυπήματα που αποσκοπούν στην τιμωρία των ισχυρών οικονομικών παραγόντων, εκπροσώπων τραπεζών, διεθνών οργανισμών εμπορίου κλπ. που πλουτίζουν κοροϊδεύοντας τον κόσμο, τη στιγ [...]

    8. 5 starsRIP Jill Bernhardt. :-(. Good book. Hope Lindsay and Joe Molinari get together. Case was very weird. Somewhat scary. Can't wait to read 4th of July!!!

    9. Al igual que sucede en las dos entregas anteriores, la protagonista indiscutible y el personaje que más se desarrolla es el de Lindsay Boxer, teniente de la Policía de San Francisco, y como coprotagonistas tenemos a sus amigas, con las que forma el Club de las mujeres contra el crimen.De nuevo, los capítulos son cortos, lo que hace la lectura muy rápida. La forma de escribir de Patterson es sencilla y ágil. Continuaré leyendo el Club, me están gustando mucho, mucho.

    10. It's great to be able to read these Women Murder Club books in a row. I enjoy them for their pace and for having just enough content to hook me into the plot. Admittedly, the story-lines in these books aren't elaborately plotted, but they give the reader enough information to be interested. Same goes for the characterization; sometimes you wish the authors would delve a little deeper. Take Jill for instance, the ADA, and friend to Lindsay, Claire and Cindy; I wish I would have known a better. I [...]

    11. This is my first James Patterson novel, and not the last. 3rd Degree is a fast moving story with interesting characters and, most importantly, a suspenseful story. His short chapters kept my interest where I didn't want to put the book down. I actually read the book in one day, i just couldnt put it down.One morning while Lt. Lindsay Boxer of the San Francisco Police Dept. was jogging with her dog she saw a house explode. Lt. Lindsay Boxer went into the burning house to see if anyone was in trou [...]

    12. There were some major flaws with this book, even though I liked it.Why introduce the Jill spousal abuse issue if she was just going to be killed shortly afterwards? This might have been an interesting story line to pursue.The motivation for the murderers doesn't add up. This guy's brother, who was a murderer, is killed by the cops. So he kills the daughter of a prosecutor, a snitch, and the brother's roommate? That's his big grudge?It was so obvious that the snooty college professor was in on th [...]

    13. Interesting, painful and romantic. Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer has earned her rank in solving some of the worst crimes ever committed in San Francisco. This series is getting better every time. This storyline deals with domestic violence, terrorist, romance and crimes all rolled into one. You will enjoy reading it.

    14. Third book in the Women's Murder Club and I loved it just as much as the first two. I was a little upset over a part of it. But the characters were great as they were in the previous two. Kept me on the edge of my seat wondering if they would solve the crimes in time. Can't wait to read the next novel.

    15. Boy, when you get your radicals, it can be quite the crime to solve. Add four women and you really have to love them when they insert themselves into the mess of causes. This particular cause, resulting in bombings all over the city and a deadly viral of ricin, is not what it appears to be. It's personal, and Jill, the District Attorney is caught in the middle of it all. And then we have three. This kind of story is all too often misunderstood and we all know there are radicals out there, even i [...]

    16. Fun, fast reading. But I couldn't fully connected with people in the story. Maybe I have to read first and second book of this series.

    17. Note: there are probably some mistakes in here I'll correct once I am not so angry. That's it I am not going to bang my head anymore over this series. I was never a huge fan of this series in the first place. I picked it up because I wanted to read a crime novel with a female lead that wasn't the witness but instead the one taking things under her control. The mysteries in these books don't have much substance to them, they are almost along the lines of brain candy then anything else. I had give [...]

    18. In this third offering in the Women's Murder Club series, "3rd Degree" starts off with a bang. Literally. Lt. Lindsay Boxer, SF Homicide Detective, is out jogging along, admiring a town house she sees on the street. And then it explodes right in front of her. After calling for help, she rushes in and finds two dead bodiesd a child, whom she rescues.What happens in the subsequent days will soon be declared a war of sorts. But who is at the hub of this activity? And who will be next on the target [...]

    19. So I thought maybe Cross was a fluke and Patterson is a better writer than that. There was another of his novels in the box so I read it as well. Not as bad as the other one, but then he had a co-writer. A nice plot idea, modern terrorists in USA, who are using the causes of the late 60s as a starting point.But I still feel like his characterizations are weak. Each book seems lacking in reasons to like these main characters, like he uses the extended time of a series to replace actual character [...]

    20. I really enjoy this series especially since the main characters are female, which you don't find too often in crime novels.You don't have to be female to appreciate the great plot, strong characters and fantastic writing style Great book I Highly recommend it

    21. Best one of the series so far! Even had me in tears at one point! It is still hard for me to get my head around a man writing as 5 women, like sometimes it feels like they think in stereotypes but the overall story is pretty good. Decent read

    22. Enjoyed this just as much if not even more than the last two. Have already purchased several more and hope the thrills and twists and turns continue without it becoming a plot blueprint and therefore predictable.

    23. Patterson and Gross bring the Ladies Murder Club to a whole knew level with their third installment. In the post 9/11 world of literature, terrorism has definitely come to the fore, and the authors turn to domestic terrorism as a basis for their story.It all starts one Sunday morning when Lt. Lindsay Boxer is doing her usual run with her friend Jill Bernhardt, San Francisco's Assistant DA. The two part ways after the run, leaving Lindsay to relax for a few minutes. It gives her just enough time [...]

    24. “Let’s Roll,” seems to be more than just a statement. From the first page of the first chapter this novel takes off on an inbound wave and rides it at neck-break speed. Scenes of the 2013 Boston Marathon are brought vividly to mind when Lindsay Boxer is out jogging and a building suddenly explodes next to her. This proves to be the initial skirmish of a newly declared one-sided war. Other murders and assignations in a variety of places with an assortment of methods soon follow. The only th [...]

    26. Another great Women's Murder Club book! I love these quick day-only readsfun for a weekend to just relax and pick up a quick paced thriller like this one.Lindsay (Homicide Police Inspector), Jill (Assistant DA), Claire (Medical Examiner), and Cindy (news reporter) all meet together when major cases are being solved in Lindsay's department to help crack down on killers. But in their newest case, a radical group will stop at nothing, using bombs and horrible organ melting poisons to murder people [...]

    27. Another good read by Patterson, written in simple form. The Women's Murder Club has a cast of characters, all spunky and determined. Yet, one will die.Tension from the start didn't end until Well, it didn't end. Even on the last page, it compels the reader to the next book.Detective Lindsay Boxer's human side comes out in this book. Tough girls, she may seem, but when her close friend dies, she's like everyone else who grieves. Yet, she has no time for that. Lindsay must catch a killer before th [...]

    28. This isn't a bad series, but I was a bit "is that it?" about this one. Lindsay investigates a series of brutal murders with terrorist connections while the others cheer her on, confronts one of friends' husbands who's been abusing her, and gets together with another colleague. There's a development that's meant to be shocking but came too early in both the book and the series to feel like a real twist, and as ever our heroine saves the day. Which isn't really a spoiler is it?
