Unlucky 13: The Women's Murder Club by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
Reviewed in the United States on May 29, 2015
Unlucky !3 by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro is the 13th installment in the Women's Murder Club series of books. I've read them all and I must confess that the earlier books written by Mr. Patterson himself were the best, but that old suspense of what's going to happen to Lindsey Boxer, Joe her husband, and baby Julie as well as the rest of the group keeps me reading.
In this book, Yuki and her fiance finally take the plunge and get married in a very hurried ceremony that is beautiful. I could imagine Yuki in her beautiful wedding gown and holding a lovely bouquet. She and her new husband were then off to a wonderful honeymoon on an Alaskan cruise ship and they couldn't wait to get away.
In the meantime, Lindsay is horrified by what is happening to people in the San Francisco area. Somehow people are ingesting small bombs in hamburgers from a chain of fast food restaurants and are literally blowing up in front of horrified bystanders. The police at first have no clue as to how the perpetrators are doing this, who they are and why they are doing this to innocent people.Claire does the autopsies and finds that is what is causing people to actually explode.
In the meantime, Cindy has run across a dangerous and old nemisis who she wants to interview for the "interview and story of her life" for her newspaper job but it is a dangerous undertaking that Cindy doesn't tell the others about .
The book is full of suspense, but the ending leaves a bit to be desired. I think it might be because...I hope!...it picks up in the next book, the 14th in the series.
