My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4th of July is the fourth installment in James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club book series. I have been reading these in order as I can find them.
I was a bit mad after the events of the third book in the series, but this book redeemed those actions somewhat. Lindsey Boxer (heroine) deals with a serial killer as well as the results of a deadly shoot out involving teenagers whose father has some influence. Its a relevant take on some things that have happened recently with the police force and the use of unreasonable force and police brutality.
It also brought a new member to the Women’s Murder Club, which I applaud, but hope it’s not a running theme to continually replace the members of the club (because that would be plot mechanic that would get old really quickly).
At any rate, I liked how the book caught us up on the lives of the characters in this series, it was an easy, enjoyable read.
