Lindsay Boxer is pregnant at last! But her work doesn’t slow for a second. When millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down, she discovers that the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco’s most untouchable criminals. And it was taken from her own department’s evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer – even her closest friends.
Honestly, I’ve never really had a problem with the mystery parts of this series. I rather enjoy following in Lindsay’s footsteps as she and her group of friends work to uncover the murders in each book. It’s nice to actually have a detective do their job and be able to see how the case unfolds from beginning to end.
That being said, I honestly am still not happy about her choice of Joe over Richie. Joe just seems like some idiot brute and I really thought Patterson had some great chemistry going on between Richie and Lindsey. I still can’t stand Cindy and Richie’s relationship and I think the fact they keep bringing up his and Lindsay’s past is a cruel way to those of us who truly wish they had gotten together. Honestly, Cindy is just too immature and too hungry for attention. I don’t honestly see how she and Lindsey are still friends, let alone why Richie is with her.
While I enjoyed the cases Lindsey had in this book, I felt the wrap up for the head garden mystery was done in a very sloppy and quick manner. It was almost as if it was an after thought. I guess, I wish there had been more to it. And I’m not looking forward to the introduction of Joe’s lying ex. It’s clear she will make an appearance in the next book and honestly, unless it’s to take him far, far away, I have no interest in it.
