Title: The 12th of Never
Author: James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
When I read it: November, 2013
Genre: Thrillers, Fiction, Mystery, Suspense, Crime
I am currently reading the 17th installment of the Women’s Murder club. Since there were so many books ahead of the 17th one, I want to post a review of each one separately, instead of creating a monster post. Most of this post will be about the plot, so that when I get to the 17th installment, readers will be caught up, in case they did not read all the books.
The Writing: As with most of the James Patterson books, the writing is nothing special. Patterson’s books are classic beach reads. Quick and entertaining for a day at the beach.
The Audiobook Recording: Nothing to report.
Expectations/Recommendations: Since I have read many of Patterson’s books before, I knew what to expect, and I was not disappointed. If you are looking for a quick read, and aren’t expecting anything intellectual, this is the right book for you.
Here is another review of the 12th of Never from a reader who has read the book more recently then myself.
See below for the plot of the book.
Summary of the Plot from Wikipedia:
“This book has three major plots and at least two minor ones. The first begins with the birth of police detective Lindsay Boxer’s daughter, which had to be at home during a major power outage. The less than sterile condition of the baby’s birth causes medical complications that keep Boxer away from her job during part of the investigation into a strange series of murders.
The second plot revolves around the series of murders. These murders take place after an eccentric college professor has vivid dreams about murders that end up coming true much in the manner he dreams them.
The third major plot involves a murder case Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano is trying in court. Castellano and Boxer are members of an informal group known as the Women’s Murder Club. Castellano’s court case has many twists.”
