The 23rd Midnight: If You Haven’t Read the Women’s Murder Club, Start Here (A Women’s Murder Club Thriller, 23)

We rated this book:


The Womens Murder Club is at in again in the latest installment, The 23rd Midnight. This time, what seems to be a copycat killer is out on the loose. A man who calls himself Blackout who is a fan of locked up serial killer Evan Burke is going around killing people. First, it’s a mother and child, then a man who is collateral damage. Meanwhile, Cindy has written a book about Burke after extensively researching him and conducting interviews from his San Quentin prison cell. Two people end up dead after going to her book signing at two separate events. Who is Blackout and how will the Womens Murder Club stop him?

This book is just as enjoyable and exciting as the other books in the series. It hits closer to home when Blackout starts sending Lindsey messages. Yuki does a great job in the courtroom trying to lock up a man who beat his wife so badly she almost died. Her case ends up being tied into the Blackout case as well. Patterson and Pietro are a fantastic writing duo and I look forward to more of their books.
