When one member of the Women's Murder Club is brutally attacked, her three companions work to keep her attacker behind bars, while Lindsay Boxer investigates a series of kidnappings in which children and their nannies are being abducted without ransom demands.

Blackwell North Amer
A horrifying burst of gunfire on a crowded ferry leaves several people dead - and one woman fighting for her life. That victim is a member of the Women's Murder Club, four friends who join forces on their toughest cases when traditional methods get them nowhere. Inspector Lindsay Boxer pursues one tantalizing lead after another in her attempt to bring in the man who tried to kill her friend. But nothing makes sense in the most twisted, frightening case the Women's Murder Club has ever faced.
While Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano prepares to prosecute the toughest trial of her life, the city is in the grip of a chilling crime spree. Children of well-to-do families are being abducted, together with their nannies. But the kidnappings are followed by devastating silence - no message from the kidnappers, no demand for ransom. Parents everywhere fear the worst. Working frantically with her new partner, Lindsay Boxer struggles to find the connection that will help them make sense of these horrific crimes.
An entire city is in the grip of fear, and Lindsay Boxer is at the top of her form in this sixth novel about the Women's Murder Club.

Hachette Book Group
When a horrifying attack leaves one of the four members of the Women's Murder Club struggling for her life, the others fight to keep a madman behind bars before anyone else is hurt. And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department run flat-out to stop a series of kidnappings that has electrified the city: children are being plucked off the streets together with their nannies-- but the kidnappers aren't demanding ransom. Amid uncertainty and rising panic, Lindsay juggles the possibility of a new love with an unsolvable investigation, and the knowledge that one member of the club could be on the brink of death. And just when everything appears momentarily under control, the case takes a terrifying turn, putting an entire city in lethal danger. Lindsay must make a choice she never dreamed she'd face--with no certainty that either outcome has more than a prayer of success.

Pretty decent read. Entertaining, fun, and without an outrageous plot. I still haven't made up my mind on how a possible serial killer was introduced but that was a very minor portion of the book. Overall, definitely recommend this one for a weekend of reading

I found this book to seem like it was more based on the romantic ongoings of Lindsay's life then the actual crime aspect. It was still good, but it takes you on a rollercoaster. One minute you want Lindsay to hook up with one guy, the next you want her to go with the other one. By the end of the book I'm not sure how to feel.. I guess we'll see what happens in book 7!
