12th of Never by James Patterson

I'm one of James Patterson's greatest fan. I have always admired how the endings are so unpredictable. He plays with your mind. I read all his novels and series as soon as they are out in bookstores. My personal favorites are Maximum Ride, Alex Cross and The Women's Murder Club series. Those three series are so diverse and you won't feel that a single author wrote them. Maximum Ride is a science-fiction while Alex Cross and WMC series are both thrillers written from a man and a woman's perspective.

I recently finished reading the latest installment of the Women's Murder Club and I think it was one of his best in the series.

It's finally time! Detective Lindsay Boxer is in labor—while two killers are on the loose. 

Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby is born! But after only a week at home with her new daughter, Lindsay is forced to return to work to face two of the biggest cases of her career. 

A rising star football player for the San Francisco 49ers is the prime suspect in a grisly murder. At the same time, Lindsay is confronted with the strangest story she's ever heard: An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a violent murder and he's convinced is real. Lindsay doesn't believe him, but then a shooting is called in—and it fits the professor's description to the last detail.

Lindsay doesn't have much time to stop a terrifying future from unfolding. But all the crimes in the world seem like nothing when Lindsay is suddenly faced with the possibility of the most devastating loss of her life.

There was a lot of things going on and I could not believe when I am nearing the end.

The Women's Murder Club is a group of four women: Lindsay - a police officer, Yuki - assistant DA, Claire - chief medical examiner and Cindy - journalist. It's amazing how four women from different careers met and solve murders together. There personal lives are so intriguing too!

Alex Cross had his second film and I was hoping that maybe this year, the girls will have a movie of their own too.
