Lindsay Boxer is pregnant at last! But her work doesn't slow for a second. When millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down, she discovers that the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco's most untouchable criminals. And it was taken from her own department's evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer - even her closest friends. Lindsay is called next to the most bizarre crime scene she's ever witnessed: two bodiless heads elaborately displayed in the garden of a world-famous actor. Another head is unearthed in the garden, and Lindsay realises that the ground could hide hundreds of victims. A reporter launches a series of malicious articles about the cases and Lindsay's personal life is laid bare. But this time she has no one to turn to - especially not Joe.
The women's murder club series is excellent, probably because it had a women's touch added to the ideas and writing and also because it stayed with the main story line so much better. I went through most of the series books in one or two sittings.

One of the best of the series
Continues to develop the characters on a personal basis and weaves them into the story line.
Publishers Weekly, 2012-07-30 In this 11th installment in the Women's Murder Club series, a vigilante serial killer-possibly a cop-is slaying above-the-law predators, and a septet of human heads is discovered in the garden of an estate owned by a man recently acquitted of murdering his wife. Working both high-profile cases is homicide detective Lindsay Boxer-who also happens to be pregnant. Narrator January LaVoy turns in an understated performance, subtly changing her tone to distinguish between the characters. It's an approach that yields mixed results. She lowers her voice slightly for the males and her depiction of Lindsay is appropriately bright, upbeat, and determined. However, the narrator could have done more to create unique voices for the book's other characters. Assistant DA Yuki Castellano should-as the books indicate-speak a little faster. Medical examiner Claire Washburn, described as a rather large African American woman, probably shouldn't be vocally indistinguishable from Cindy Thomas, a svelte blonde crime reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle. However, LaVoy does not skimp when it comes to creating emotion or mood. And while her minimalist take on the characters may bother some fans of the series, it's not likely to undercut the overall entertainment value of this audio edition, which delivers on deduction, suspense, action, and female bonding.
