21st Birthday

A young mother and baby daughter go missing (Women’s Murder Club 21)




In the latest instalment in the globally bestselling Women's Murder Club series, SFPD Sergeant Lindsay Boxer vows to protect a twenty-year-old victim long enough to see her twenty-first birthday.

Will she live to see her twenty-first birthday?

When a distraught mother pleads with reporter Cindy Thomas to investigate the disappearance of her daughter, Tara, and her baby granddaughter, Cindy goes straight to SFPD Sergeant Lindsay Boxer.

The prime suspect is Tara's husband, but he tells a conflicting story that paints Tara as a wayward wife, not a missing person.

Is this a tragic case of domestic violence? Or is the truth linked to a more complex network of killings?

As the case grows into something far bigger than any of them could have imagined, the Women's Murder Club will need to work together to unpick the truth from a web of lies.

Praise for 21st Birthday

Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried... there's no stopping his imagination.

NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

No one gets this big without natural storytelling talent - which is what Jim has, in spades.

LEE CHILD, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series

Patterson boils a scene down to a single, telling detail, the element that defines a character or moves a plot along. It's what fires off the movie projector in the reader's mind.

MICHAEL CONNELLY

James Patterson is the boss. End of.

IAN RANKIN, bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus series

James Patterson is the gold standard by which all others are judged.

STEVE BERRY, bestselling author of the Colton Malone series
