4th of july 2005, . 4th of July (2005), . There was a pitcher of margaritas on the table and four glasses, two of them empty. I filled a glass and looked at my friends, feeling that almost magical connection that we’d forged because of all we’d gone through together. Looks like you need a transfusion, Claire joked.

James Brendan Patterson is an American author and philanthropist. It was Patterson who first showed that television advertising could work for books. More radically, he has demonstrated that working with co‑writers can dramatically multiply sales. Patterson has been criticized for co-authoring many of his books and for being more of a brand that focuses on making money than an artist who focuses on his craft. 4th of July is a crafty and suspenseful page-turner about Lindsay Boxer.

Detective Lindsay Boxer and the Women's Murder Club make a courageous return for their fourth and most chilling case ever-one that could easily be their last. In a late-night showdown after a near-fatal car chase, San Francisco police lieutenant Lindsay Boxer has to make an instantaneous decision: in self-defense, she fires her weapon-and sets off a chain of events that leaves a police force disgraced, an entire city divided, and a family destroyed. Now everything she's worked her entire life for hinges on the decision of twelve jurors. To escape scrutiny during breaks from her trial, Lindsay retreats to the picturesque town of Half Moon Bay. But soon after her arrival, a string of grisly murders punches through the peaceful community. There are no witnesses and there is no discernible pattern. But a key detail recalls a case Lindsay worked on as a rookie years before-an unsolved murder that has haunted her ever since. As summer comes into full swing, Lindsay and her friends in the Women's Murder Club battle for her life on two fronts: before a judge and jury as her trial comes to a climax, and facing unknown adversaries who will do anything to keep her from the truth about the killings-including killing again. James Patterson fine-tunes the tension as never before in this breathtaking addition to the best-selling detective series to debut in a decade.
I love James Patterson. His books are always a fast read with wonderful characters. I like the new character Yuki who joins the Murder Club, and the serial killers in this novel come with a twist. One set of serial killers is a couple of siblings, 13 and 15 years old. The other set of serial killers are - well you’ll have to read the book, but they are a surprise. Serial killers who work in groups are rare, and few are under 16 years old.
My problems with this novel include the premise behind the courtroom trial. Two rich kids murder poor kids, and there’s plenty of evidence to connect them to the killings. The killer kids then open fire on two veteran police officers seriously wounding both of them. The older sibling Sara is shot and killed. The younger sibling, Sam is crippled for life. Their parents sue Lindsey, the main character in this series, and they sue the city.
It’s unlikely such a law suit would find its way to court, but the author needed a way to introduce attorney Yuki, the fascinating new character. He should have found a way to involve her in a believable trial. Another unlikely event was when Allison shows up to warn Lindsay and bring her to a crime scene. The motivation is unclear. Allison doesn’t tell Lindsay what is happening. Why not? By the time Allison warns Lindsay and brings her to the scene, the Farley’s would have been murdered and the killers gone.
But Lindsay would have had to find a different way to solve the murders. Actually she doesn’t solve the murders. The child brings her to a crime scene in progress, where she stops a murder and arrests the killers.
I expect the detective in a story like this to figure things out, and not allow a minor character to lead her to a conclusion she would NOT have been able to deduce on her own.
Yet the conclusion itself was chilling and satisfying.
I’m sticking with the series and looking forward to reading the next book in the line up.
I love this series. I am guaranteed a compelling story line that keeps me interested from the first page to the last. That being said...

1. As readers, we enter into a contract with the author to suspend disbelief. I willingly go along with the ride.
2. How many times is Patterson going to shoot Lindsay? Thus far she has survived an illness that is supposed to have no cure, been shot about four times and she bounces back running with her dog on the beach within a remarkable recovery time.
3. Is in a bicoastal relationship with the second in command of Homeland Security, is forced to take a vacation and goes to her sister's instead of to Washington to be close to him. He comes to see her all the time. Strange.
4. This last book solves the crimes by Lindsay who again fails to carry her phone or leaves her gun in her purse. All the suspects seem to jump into her realm accidentally. As much as I like the books being 400 pages or less and a fast read, I think there needed to be more explanation.

That said, I shall continue to read Patterson. I shall continue to agree with our contract.
A good read. 4th of July by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro is exciting. If you the reader are familiar at all with the San Francisco Bay Area, you can visualize the scenery in this well written book. Our heroin, Lt. Lindsay Boxer, is with her Murder Club friends in their restaurant hang out near SFPD. Lindsay has had a couple of margaritas while waiting for their meal to be served when Warren Jacobi, her former partner, enters and tells Lindsay of a murder that was committed in the Tenderloin district. They had learned of a black Mercedes that had been seen at one other homicide. When Lindsay and Jacobi arrive at the scene, they see a black Mercedes parked at the curb so the decide to wait and see who gets in. Their view is blocked and the next thing they know is that the Mercedes takes of at high speed. The chase is on. The driver crashes the car and when Lindsay and Jacobi look inside they find two teenage kids. They get the teenagers out of the car and then all hell brakes loose. Lindsay is shot along with her partner but while she is down on the ground, she gets off a couple of rounds and kills the teenage driver and wounds her brother who had shot Jacobi point blank and when he was down kicks him in the head. Lindsay is released from the hospital but the parents want revenge. This is a story of court action and in the face of civil jury trial, Lindsay goes to visit her sister in Half Moon Bay. While there she becomes involved in a series of murders very much similar to John Doe #24 when Lindsay was just a new homicide detective. This case has not been solved in ten years and remains as an open case.
Both writers have their way with some of the laws and at times I get a little laugh from how this fine book is written. It is not possible for every writer to know fully how California criminal and civil laws are written, but it make this a fine read. Not recommended for young readers. Sex and violence.

Well, I'm a JP fan and have been for awhile. One thing I love about the Murder Club series is that they are ONLY written by JP. I am glad u e is so pro reading, but when I am reading something he wrote, I can usually tell when he turns the wheel over to someone else (and that I Don't care for!!) That being said, I liked this series so well that I decided to go back (this time) and read them again. I don 't do that often unless I am so busy that I don't want something I can't put down to deter me. Hence, the reread! And this series can tolerate it! It's rather like sitting down with an old friend--even knowing the storyline, it's rich enough in texture that it satisfies the "need to read"!! His main character is pretty believable as are her buddies and the storyline is strong and the camaraderie warm. If you like this genre, read it; you won't regret it!
