Short & Sweet Review: The 20th Victim by James Patterson

Title: The 20th Victim
Author: James Patterson
Series: Women's Murder Club, #20
Published: May 2020, Little, Brown & Company
Format: Hardcover, 432 pages
Source: Personal copy

Three victims, three bullets, three cities. The shooters' aim is as fearsomely precise as their target selection. When Lindsay realizes that the fallen men and women excel in a lucrative, criminal activity, she leads the charge in the manhunt for the killers. As the casualty list expands, fear and fascination with this suspicious shooting gallery galvanizes the country.

The victims were no angels, but are the shooters villains . . . or heroes?

***Short & Sweet Reviews are short, quick reviews. These will mainly be used for series books where I have already done full reviews on some of the earlier books or for books that I feel will suffice with a quick review. These will not be used for review requests or blog tours.

My thoughts: Once again, we are back with another thrilling, action-packed installment in this series, which is probably my most favorite in the James Patterson series I read. I will say, though, that there were so many different storylines to follow that I felt the ending was just a bit rushed in order to wrap everything up, but overall it was a pretty good book. 

One thing I was not expecting was the storyline involving Clare...that was a tough one and despite it having a relatively good ending, it still got to me. I could relate to how this impacted Lindsay, and I felt that that was well done. And I don't know if it was because of this news or just because, but I loved that there were a few get-togethers with all four of the women. This is one thing that I was just complaining in my review of the previous book that I missed from the older books and I was so happy to see!

I'm not sure what to expect next or how many more books will be coming in this series, but I will for sure be reading until it ends. These books are fun, quick reads that I just enjoy as I do with all the James Patterson books I pick up.

  1. I can't wait to read this book, I love the series. So many books to read, however. I'm afraid to look at blogs now as I'm up to 62 reserves at the library, 10 Kindle unlimited and about 75 other Kindle books not read yet!
