Women’s Murder Club #16

Ultimately, this 16th installment in the WMC series was not such a very satisfying read. First of all, the criminal trial for that bomber took forever (more than half of the book), and then to have that plot fizzle out, towards the end, without giving the readers a true sense of justice. The subplot was even more ridiculous. Imagine a miniature psycho who has kept himself hidden as a mental patient for 40 years, only to go out at night – through secret subterranean tunnels to commit murders; more accurately to syringe plunge people’s butt with a lethal drug in order to stop their hearts.
I thought overall both story-lines were weak. The only redeeming factor are the personal lives of our 4 friends Lindsay, Claire, Yuki and Cindy, and even there, there wasn’t much of an actual deep dive. One good thing is that Lindsay makes up her mind about Joe, realizing she might lose him due to the injuries he sustained from the bombing; she finally reconciles with him. The family tableau’s with little Julie feel authentic, and are so sweet
