Fifteen months ago, Detective Lindsay Boxer's life was perfect. She had a beautiful child and a doting husband, Joe, who helped her catch a criminal who'd brazenly detonated a bomb in downtown San Francisco, killing twelve people. But Joe wasn't everything that Lindsay thought he was, and she's still reeling from the betrayal as a wave of mysterious, and possibly unnatural, heart attacks claim seemingly unrelated victims across San Francisco. As if that weren't enough, the bomber that she and Joe captured is about to go on trial, and his defense raises damning questions about Lindsay and Joe's investigation. Not knowing whom to trust, and struggling to accept the truth about the man she thought she knew, Lindsay must connect the dots of a deadly conspiracy before a brilliant criminal puts her on trial.

dissapointing! Felt like the end of it was rushed and whatever happened with Sophie Fields? yes she died but what was the point to having her in the story?? I feel like there were still things that were left unsolved in the book.

Not up to Patterson's usual excellence. Found it slow and boring-two star rating.

Disappointing. Feel like maybe he is allowing someone else to write because this was the LEAST of my favorite of this series. I honestly skimmed at least half of it. If this was the first in the series...I wouldn't be back.

Love James Patterson's books and the Women's Murder Club series in particular. Great story line and overall I found it very entertaining. There is more set-up than usual in the 16th Seduction, but I didn't find that distracting. I have noticed recently some unhappiness in various book reviews - must be the summer of discontent. Patterson and Paetro delivered for me in this one. It's an entertaining and fast read. Enjoy it!

Average rating of 2.3 stars yet library rating shows 4 stars!!! Many must have rated 5 stars without comments which is highly illogical. Are they from independent or paid Patterson's fans? Hope the librarians will look into this discrepancy. Without a good explanation, the biblio rating marginalized legit members' reviews.

Here is the math for that to happen.

Number of commenters who posted ratings = 5; assume X is number of raters who did not comment; and the average rating of 4:
Therefore total number of patrons who commented and those who only rated = (5+X)
and the sum of stars by both commenters and X (raters without comment) = (5+X)4
----
Sum of stars by commenters = 11.5; assume those X raters gave the maximum 5 stars:
Therefore sum of stars by commenters and X (raters without comment) = 11.5 + 5X
---
To solve for X
11.5 + 5X = (5+X)4
X = 8.5

Math says 8.5 people who did not care to leave a comment rated this book the maximum of 5 stars while those who cared to leave a comment and rated gave it a poor 2.3 stars ?????

Slow, dull and quite boring - hard to believe it is part of the series... disappointing.

It was okay but really slow. It didnt move like the other books in series just wanted to scream at times. This book is nothing compared to earlier books.

Didn't have the pow of earlier books in this series. Gave the reader lots of info on the suspect, but the police never linked everything together by the end. Then in the middle it just veered off into another story unrelated to the original crime. Would have liked to have seen more of the story between Joe and Boxer, which has had its problems in the last book. Wrapped that story line up too quickly with a nice ribbon. Want to see more of the Murder Club meeting and solving the crimes.

Good addition to the Women's Murder Club series.
I love that Lindsey and Joe got back together.
