THE 18th ABDUCTION is yet another entertaining read in James Patterson & Maxine Paetro's WOMEN'S MURDER CLUB series. Let me start by saying the Murder Club meets only three times during this book, but with the exception of Claire, who pops in and out as the ME for several grim murders in the book, the story far and away is about Boxer and Molinari. Poor Cindy is stuck with a few short cameos in which she is inevitably trying to pry some info out to stay ahead of the story. Yuki does jump in twice with some helpful legal ideas. That said, none of it is criticism. The story line, if rough and violent (it can be), is mostly because it centers around a convicted war criminal from the Balkans who did some really bad things. Very sadist things. Now he shows up in the US and the SFPD and FBI are trying to find out who is doing sadistic things in San Francisco. Like the violence part or not, there was crazy stuff happening for real in the Balkans, and war crimes were committed. I think this story reminds us of what people with power can do, in the worst ways, to those who have no power. Good story line, and an entertaining read.

Lindsey Boxer of the San Francisco Police Dept. and her husband Joe Molinari of the FBI are partners in crime fighting. A missing women's report of three teachers starts the book. Will they continue to be just missing or will they become homicides? Lindsey has to work on them and determine who the culprit is and what the crime will be. In the meantime Joe accidentally bumps into a victim of genocide from Serbia and he is chasing a perpetrator. Will these two streams merge? Will either or both be successful? The book answers these questions and was OK. It was just too sadistic for me.

great read!

James Pattersons books seem to be becoming more and more violent and brutal.
I will likely not read the rest of this book for that reason. Why is it always women
are being violated and tortured and brutalized. There is too much detailed description as to what was done to them. I like to read in the evening because it relaxes me and then I go to sleep. This book is likely to give one nightmares. I will think twice about reading any more books by this author.

Much better that the last club mystery & hopefully getting back to why we started reading in the first place. Still needs work but making progress. Wasn't too thrilled with the international plot but did hold interest with the weaving of characters.

First of all James Patterson has not "written" the books with his name attached for years. I liked the Women's Murder Club series because of the interaction / cooperation among the 4 women. This one was 90% Lindsay Boxer, involved a Bosnian war criminal ( not my area of interest ) and increased the violence way beyond necessary. The series is becoming more and more disappointing. Cannot recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby

Hard to believe this is book 18 of this series since they mostly come out once a year. Good addition to this series. It was fun to see LIndsay and Joe working together on a case.
