Book Review: “12th of Never” by James Patterson (Women’s Murder Club #12)


Title:  12th of Never

Author:  James Patterson

Series:  Women’s Murder Club #12

Synopsis (from

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

Lindsay Boxer’s beautiful baby daughter is born! While Lindsay and Joe are at home in bliss, San Francisco gets hit with multiple killings. An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a murder that he claims is real. No one believes him-until a vicious shooting fits the man’s description to the last detail.

Then the girlfriend of a star player for the San Francisco 49ers is found dead in her car, making the athlete the prime suspect. This seems like an open-and-shut case-until the body inexplicably vanishes from the morgue. When the desperate chief of police calls for help, Lindsay is forced to return to work after only one week at home with her newborn.

But all the crimes in the world will seem like nothing when she suddenly faces the most devastating loss of her life. With heart-pounding emotion and suspense, 12TH OF NEVER is James Patterson’s most shocking and sensational Women’s Murder Club novel yet.


My thoughts:  I decided to jump back into this series after some time away (after I lost my mojo with it after a disappointing #10) and I’m certainly glad I did.  I really enjoyed this book and of course flew through it like I do most Patterson books.

I love jumping back into a storyline with a cast of characters that I know . . . its like returning home!

I also truly enjoyed the overall plot lines of this book.  There were two or more simultaneous storylines that flowed well together and played off one another beautifully.


I know Patterson takes quite a bit of flack for publishing so many books, and basically having other authors write them while is name is on them . . . but let’s face it, if you love them you love them.  Read on!


Very much looking forward to #13 which happens to come out days before I get on a plane for Hawaii!  Can’t wait to read it.


And remember,

Books Are Life,
