1st to Die by: James Patterson Review

Description off Book Jacket:

Four women--four friends--share a determination to stop a killer who has been stalking newlyweds in San Francisco. Each holds a piece of the puzzle: Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector in the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn is a medical examiner, Jill Bernhardt is an assistant D.A., and Cindy Thomas just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle.
But the usual procedures aren't bringing them any closer to stopping the killings. So these women form a Women's Murder Club to collaborate outside the box and pursue the case by sidestepping their bosses and giving one another a hand.
These four women develop intense bonds as they pursue a murderer whose crimes have stunned an entire city. Working together, they track down the most terrifying and unexpected killer they have ever encountered--before a shocking conclusion in which everything they know turns out to be devastatingly wrong.

My Review:
This book I thought was really well done and set up the relationships between the four women. While a murderer is running loose killing of newlyweds. This book really had me guessing who the murderer really was up until the end where everything I thought I knew backfired. Definitely a great mystery book from what I feel is a good mystery writer. Am currently starting 2nd Chance. This book was a great start of a series, loved the interaction between the women.
