Women Murder Club Pushes Forward With 12th Of Never By James Patterson And Maxine Paetro

James Patterson

I've been keeping track of the Women Murder Club book series by one of the most prolific writers of today's generation. It's not only because it's starred by female characters written by a male writer (with collaboration, of course -- Maxine Paetro), but also because each page races with excitement and cliffhangers that won't allow you to stop reading.

To push the story of the Women Murder Club forward, James Patterson and Maxine Paetro join forces once again to web the stories of the heroines of the series in a familiar sounding title, 12th of Never. I am not really sure how it was related with Johnny Mathis's song of the same title, but it's so creepy a coincidence that it's impossible Patterson didn't really incorporate the song into the novel.

Check out the not-so-revealing cover of 12th of Never by James Patterson:

12th of Never by James Patterson


It's finally time! Detective Lindsay Boxer is in labor—while two killers are on the loose.

Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby is born! But after only a week at home with her new daughter, Lindsay is forced to return to work to face two of the biggest cases of her career.

A rising star football player for the San Francisco 49ers is the prime suspect in a grisly murder. At the same time, Lindsay is confronted with the strangest story she's ever heard: An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a violent murder and he's convinced is real. Lindsay doesn't believe him, but then a shooting is called in—and it fits the professor's description to the last detail.

Lindsay doesn't have much time to stop a terrifying future from unfolding. But all the crimes in the world seem like nothing when Lindsay is suddenly faced with the possibility of the most devastating loss of her life.

The book will be released on April 29, 2012 and will be published by Little, Brown and Company.
