What to expect

Two cases have pushed Detective Lindsay Boxer to the limit.

A string of fatal arson attacks have broken out in San Fransisco. The targets have one thing in common: they are all rich, successful, married couples. With four couples dead, Lindsay is determined to put a stop to the killings and trace the murderer.

Juggling cases, Lindsay has plenty on her mind. Michael Campion was a people's hero, a popular governor's son who publicly battled against a rare and debilatating heart illness. When he vanished without a trace one evening, his disappearance and the search to find him, dead or alive, hit the headlines daily. But the trail went cold very quickly. Now with a devastating new lead, Lindsay picks up the trail once more. But what is the link between the Campion case and the arson attacks?

With the help of her friends and fellow Women's Murder Club members - Yuki, an attorney feeling the strain of a high profile court case; Claire, a medical examiner trying to balance her career and her pregnancy and Cindy, the reporter for a San Fransisco newspaper - Lindsay must race to find the suspects and stop the cold-blooded killers, and fast.

Cork Evening Echo

I stayed up so late finishing it I got a migraine. But it was worth it!

York Evening Press

Fast-moving, intricately plotted story in which Boxer steals the show as the tough cop with a good heart.


The suspense is kept high until the final pages. 7th Heaven is written in a brisk and clear style...I enjoy a good plot and this one qualifies in that category...the bottom line is that I really enjoyed it and would certainly read more of the series and rather regret not having read the earlier ones'


The seventh in the popular Woman's Murder Club series, this crime drama races along in short, action-packed chapters
