Patterson's Women's Murder Club, a tenacious team of an attorney, a detective, a coroner and a journalist, make a second appearance after their inauguration in 1st to Die. A young girl is shot down on the steps of a San Francisco church, and Detective Lindsay Boxer decides that the time is right to reconvene the Women's Murder Club. Collaborating with assistant DA Jill Bernhardt, reporter Cindy Thomas and coroner Claire Washburn, Boxer is soon on the trail of a canny murderer who has the knack of making his trackers into his quarry. Boxer and the Women's Murder Club begin to believe that the killer might have been on the force, but his ultimate aims are unguessable - and the revelations in store shock them all. Less gripping than usual - the presence of co-writer Gross, perhaps?
