First to Die is the electrifying first novel in an explosive series from megabestselling James Patterson, the creator of Alex Cross - one of the most popular series characters in thriller fiction.
As the only woman homicide inspector in San Francisco, Lindsay Boxer has to be tough. But nothing has prepared her for the honeymoon murders.
A brutal maniac begins a killing spree - slaughtering newlywed couples - and Lindsay takes on the case. She is sickened by the deaths, but her determination to bring the murderer to justice is threatened by a personal tragedy. So she turns to Claire, a coroner, Cindy, a journalist, and Jill, an attorney, for help with both crises; and the Women's Murder Club is born.
