11th Hour (James Patterson) - Preview & competition
Preview by Jack Foley
DETECTIVE Lindsay Boxer is pregnant – and investigating the discovery of severed heads in a movie star’s garden…
11th Hour is the latest gripping instalment of the Sunday Times number one series, Women’s Murder Club, from the world’s bestselling thriller writer James Patterson.
Founding member of the Women’s Murder Club, Lindsay Boxer, is pregnant at last but her work doesn’t slow down for a second. When millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down, she discovers the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco’s most untouchable criminals and it was taken from her own department’s evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer – even her closest friends.
It’s not long before Lindsay is called to the most bizarre crime scene she has ever witnessed, two bodiless heads elaborately displayed in the garden of a world-famous actor. When another head is unearthed in the garden, Lindsay realises the ground could hide hundreds of victims.
A reporter then launches a series of malicious articles about the case and Lindsay’s personal life is laid bare, but this time she has no one to turn to.
James Patterson is one of the best-known and biggest-selling writers of all time. Since winning the Edgar Award in 1977 for his first novel, The Thomas Berryman Number, his books have sold more than 220 million copies worldwide.
