Introduction

(Imagine a killer who thinks What is the worst thing anyone has ever done?and then does something far worse! Now imagine four womena police detective, an assistant D.A., a reporter, and a medical examinerwho pursue this killer by sidestepping their bosses and giving each other a hand. The combination adds up to the most exciting thriller series debut since A Is for Alibi. The four women, who call themselves the Womens Murder Club, develop lifelong bonds as they pursue a killer whose twisted imagination has stunned an entire city. Working together, they track down the most terrifying and unexpected killer everbefore a shocking resolution that turns everything about the case upside down. A major new series from James Patterson that will rival the popularity and sales of his Alex Cross novels. Huge TV miniseries tie in: NBC will air a major two-part miniseries based on 1st To Die during sweeps week, May 2001. A movie version of Along Came a Spider will reach theaters early in 2001.

  "You can't go wrong with a Patterson"by jaseifert (see profile) 10/13/07

I've since read 2-5 of the series and all are very good and quick reads. Not much to discuss for a book club book, it's what I call a pleasure book and not literature, but was still enjoyable.
