    I've only read about three, but I really like them. If you're not sure if you'd like them or not, I'd suggest going to the library and checking out the first book and going from there?

    I've read all the books and absolutely loved book 7. very interesting storyline. I didn't really think much of books 5 or 6 though but I'm glad that Patterson got book 7 right because the relationships of the 4 women as well as the men in Lindsay's life (Joe and Rich Conklin) were great!

    It's already been released in Australia about 2 weeks ago. LOL

    I was talking to a friend in the states the other day and she said it wasn't out until February 4th.

    I love the books. 1-3 are a lot better than 4-6 though. But even though they're all 350-450 pages, it didn't take me more than 2 days (even with school) to read any of them because they are THAT good. I didn't want to put it down.

    Oh the books are great, that's why I watched the show and yes they are similar to the show so if you like the show, you'd love the books.

    I've read a few of them, and have been hooked on James Patterson ever since. I have nearly all of his books and also have all of the WM club collection. Bt right now my favourite book by him is "A long came a spider". Book much better than the movie and completely different.

    I am actually in the process of reading 4th of July. But all the books I have read so far I have enjoyed greatly. They are similar to the TV show but there is still a difference in them that I enjoy.

    Jill was killed off in 3rd Degree. She was "August Spies" 3rd victim. He used ricin - Claire discovered during the autopsy that the gunshot to Jill's rt occipital lobe was delivered after she was already dead. In the book Jill was also married to a physically abusive spouse.
