Four women share a determination to stop a killer who has been stalking newlyweds in San Francisco. Each of the four friends holds a piece of the puzzle: Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector in the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn is a medical examiner, Jill Bernhardt is an assistant DA, and Cindy Thomas just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle. But the usual procedures aren’t bringing them any closer to stopping the killings. So these resolute women form a group dubbed the Women’s Murder Club to collaborate outside the box, pursuing the case by sidestepping their bosses and giving one another a hand. The four women develop intense bonds as they track a killer whose crimes have stunned an entire city. It is a killer who thinks, “What is the worst thing anyone has ever done?”—and then goes far beyond it. Working together, the Women’s Murder Club hunts down this most terrifying and unexpected killer before a shocking conclusion in which everything they knew turns out to be devastatingly wrong.
