12th of Never is the 12th book in the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. The novel begins with Detective Lindsay Boxer in labor. After only a week at home with newborn daughter, Lindsay returns back to work and takes on two big cases. A serial killer wakes from a two-year coma ready to reveal where bodies are buried but he'll only confess to Lindsay. A football player is the prime suspect in a murder. A child is missing. Yuki is working on yet another high profile trial prosecuting a disbarred attorney. Claire's position in the Medical Examiner's office is threatened. Cindy is obsessed with reporting a mystery. And an English professor with precognition sees murders in a dream before they happen. Detectives don't believe him until the murders happen, fitting to the last detail of the professor's description. But these cases all take a backseat when Lindsay and husband Joe are faced with a possible loss.
Is the old Patterson writing style back? Not in the slightest. It is more apparent than ever that he is not writing this series alone.
