[Book Review] 7TH HEAVEN by James Patterson


Beth reviews 7TH HEAVEN by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro (Little, Brown & Co., 2008)

This book was wonderful! I highly recommend it to new fans (thanks to the TV show) and old fans who have read books 1-6.

*****WARNING!!! The following contains spoilers. Read at your own risk!*****

A new year brings us a new Women’s Murder Club book. We open with a new tip about the governor’s missing son, Michael Campion. The night Michael disappeared he was seen entering the home of Junie Moon, a known high-class prostitute. Lindsay and her new partner, Rich Conklin, are amazed when Junie Moon quickly confesses to the death of Michael and the subsequent dismemberment and disposal of his body. But did Junie Moon really kill Michael? Will she go to trial? And if so, will she be found guilty?

A new wave of terror is falling over the city as the arsonist murders continue. Couples are being found dead in their burned homes. There is no evidence of forced entry and no clues. How are the murderers gaining entry? And why are books being left for the police in the houses with inscriptions written in Latin? Complicating things, a fire investigator that Lindsay has known for years is implicated.

As always we get to glimpse into the lives of the members of the Women's Murder Club:

Lindsay is having problems with Joe. Is it the job or her chemistry with her new partner? Can they overcome these issues and will she agree to marry him?

Cindy Thomas, the reporter of the group, gets some news coverage but little space in the book. Maybe next time....

Claire Washburn, medical examiner, is there with Lindsay and the victims. She's also ready to give birth to her new baby girl.

Yuki Castellano, the assistant district attorney, must decide to try Junie Moon for murder and decide what to do about the writer who wants to include her in his next big book about the trial.

This novel is a must-read for suspense thrillers! Plan to spend several hours to enjoy this one straight through to the SURPRISE ending!
