The Instant #1 New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the most explosive case of her career.

Lindsay Boxer is learning to love again. After the picture-perfect world she shared with her husband, Joe, and their beautiful young daughter shattered under the weight of Joe's double life, Lindsay is determined to put the pieces back together. But before she can welcome Joe back with open arms, their beloved hometown of San Francisco faces a threat unlike any the city--or the country--has ever seen.

When the danger hits even closer to home, Lindsay and Joe find a common cause and spring into action, with quick results. But what at first seems like an open-and-shut case quickly turns into anything but, when the suspect threatens everything that Lindsay has worked a lifetime to build. As Lindsay's investigation is scrutinized and undermined by a criminal as brilliant as any high-powered defense lawyer, and her motives are called into question by everyone she thought had her back, not even the truth may be enough to save her.

In a desperate fight for her career--and her life--Lindsay must connect the dots of a deadly conspiracy before a fiendish enemy puts her on trial-and walks free with blood on his hands.

Filled with the trademark suspense and emotion that have made James Patterson the world's #1 bestselling writer, 16th Seduction is the Women's Murder Club's toughest case yet--and an exhilarating thrill ride from start to finish.

User reviews about the book

  • 16th Woman's Murder Club

    By 54catlady
    James Patterson never fails to hold my attention with his fast paced books. Bravo! As my husband said "Wow, you whipped through that one!"
  • Major Disappointment

    By SkiGrl-T
    If Mr. Patterson wants to retire, he should just retire. Maxine Paetra is now resting on a lucrative partnership and isn't putting any real work into writing. Between the two of them they are just capitalizing on their names. This is a short story sold at the price of a novel. While I have loved the WMC series, the books have become so formulaic and predictable that they aren't worth the bother. There's nothing new or exciting here. There is nothing depth. Even the renewal of the relationship between Joe and Lindsay was a yawn fest. Come on guys. If you're going to charge me $12.99 for a book, put some effort into it. For now, I'm over you.
  • Good Book - Not Good Enough

    By CoffeeismyJam
    We anticipate that the next WMC book will be as good as the last. There are only a couple in the 16 books that have been "not as good" for me, as the rest, and this is one. I feel like I could tell when the other author was writing and to be honest the Terrorism stuff (this book and last) is a little unnecessary. I feel like I could have turned on the news for this story. I'd rather be entertained, not reminded. Maybe that was the point, I don't know, but I started reading these books for the fiction. The secondary storyline was good. I feel like that one had a lot of potential.

    I loved this book. Couldn't put it down!
  • Not bad

    By Rnrvegas
    In my opinion, this book carried on the characters well, but seem to stretch out the "situations". I will read the 17th one.

    I love the Murder Club Series. Always great books well written wit twists and turns as all murder mystery novels should be. I still however can't figure how the title relates to the story.

    I usually enjoy all that Patterson writes, especially the Woman's Murder Club series. However, the last two books in this series have been very disappointing and were definitely not Patterson's best work.
  • Not his best

    By La Gato13
    I usually love the women's murder club books and have read them all, the first part with Grant and his trial reminded me of a John Grisham book. The only part that was James Patterson was "the neddy storyline"
  • Worst reads?

    By OTB !!!
    I can't say it was the worst but it's close. If u you don't mind predictable plots and lackluster writing this book my be what you are looking for when reading. I was so disappointed that I almost didn't finish. I won't be reading anything soon by this pair soon.
