Details: no. 7 Women's Murder Club Mystery

Classic Patterson with lots of action, multiple mysteries and nice twist at the end.
Lindsay & co seem to at last have solved the mystery of the disappearance of Michael Campion. As the son of a Governor and suffering from an untreatable heart defect, he was known nationwide, and when he vanished the whole country was interested. Now, after a tip, a young prostitute has admitted to him dying in her arms and having disposed of the body. But without that body, no other physical evidence and a retraction of the confession, is convicting the prostitute really going to be easy for attorney, Yuki?
And then there is the string of arson attacks, all on the homes of the wealthy and all resulting in the dead of the owners. Without any clues as to the identity of the arsonists or their motives, this case appears to be going nowhere.
With several personal dilemma's and dangers thrown in as well, this book races along, forcing the reader to keep on turning the pages.
There may not be a whole lot of depth to these books, but as thrillers they do exactly what they're supposed to do.
