Unlucky 13 by James Patterson

Where did I get it?

Bought it at Cotsco. Yay for cheap books!


San Francisco Detective Lindsay Boxer is loving her life as a new mother. With an attentive husband, a job she loves, plus best friends who can talk about anything from sex to murder, things couldn’t be better.

Then the FBI sends Lindsay a photo of a killer from her past, and her happy world is shattered. The picture captures a beautiful woman at a stoplight. But all Lindsay sees is the psychopath behind those seductive eyes: Mackie Morales, the most deranged and dangerous mind the Women’s Murder Club has ever encountered.

In this pulse-racing, emotionally charged novel by James Patterson, the Women’s Murder Club must find a killer–before she finds them first.


Very typical mystery cover. Nothing impressive.

Initial Thoughts

I love this series. I don’t care about all the hate that people have about James Patterson, I love this series. It’s getting a litttttle long though. Not that I mind, but it’ll suck to reread.

My New BFF

I wouldn’t say Lindsey is my new bff but she’s easily my favourite character. I just feel like I connect with her personality over the other girls. I love their relationships with each other though. They’re such a great group of friends! It makes me a little jealous.

My Crush

No crushes really in this series. I feel like it’s not that kind of book.

Writing Style

I’m loving these books but I feel like they’re being a little rushed at this point. There was also three different plot lines and it made it a little confusing sometimes. I did like the plot with Yuki though. I thought that was especially interesting and I wished the rest of the crew could have been there.

Closing Thoughts

Not the best book in the series but I still liked it. It’s a series I’ll probably keep reading until the end. It’s a commitment though so if you’re starting this series for the first time, but a lot of time aside. I really love the women in power feel there is in this book. I think that it’s important to have women high up in authority instead of just men. This book does a good job of having men and women work together as equals and I really like that.
