2nd Chance

2nd Chance (Women's Murder Club, #2) - James Patterson

We have a serial sniper who seems out to get African Americans who are linked to San Francisco police officers. Lindsay who is now a lieutenant, doesn't seem to be doing a good job of actually tracking her people, and making sure things are moving forward on her other cases. She soon becomes focused on this case and brings in the Women's Murder Club to help her out. 

 

Honestly I didn't like 2nd Chance because we find out what happened years ago when a police officer murdered a young black boy, and we have Boxer and her friends just ignoring it. I thought it was garbage and felt really upset that we had no repercussions for that part of the book that is just dropped on us. 

 

I also really loathed the Jill gets pregnant, but because she is dedicated to her job, loses her baby story-line. It's gross and sexist as hell.

 

There's not much for Cindy to do in this one besides decide she is in love with a local reverend. 

Lindsay was boring and her reconciliation with her father came out of nowhere, so you know it has something to do with the case she's on. Nothing was a surprise and was boring. 

 

The writing is still choppy and at this point, the two books seem to be doing the same thing. We catch a bad guy, but hey it's not the real bad guy and we get an ending with Lindsay ready to be killed, but she someone shoots the bad guy.
