17th Suspect ~ by James Patterson and Maxine Praeto

I read this a few days ago but didn’t get a post put up about it. I’m only 1 book shy of being caught up on the Women’s Murder Club series. Then it will be one book a year as long as it holds out.

17th Suspect
By James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
2018 / 
Read by January LaVoy 
Rating: A- / procedural thriller  

I’m charging through a couple of these Women’s Murder Club books and I’ll be all caught up.  The 17th Suspect is very similar in structure to the priors in the series.  There are two plot lines going almost from the start.  The first one is a young man accusing and suing his young and beautiful supervisor for rape.  She says they were role playing and it was all his idea in the first place. Yuki is the prosecuting attorney.  

In the second plot thread Lindsay Boxer has been told by a woman who lives on or near the streets that there have been shootings in the homeless community.  

The action alternates between the plots with occasional scenes for tension relief.  I really do enjoy the crime plots more than the romance which to me is an adequate tension reliever and I’ve grown fond of the characters.
