Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

SOMEBODY DIES.

A young mother is recuperating in a San Francisco hospital when she is suddenly gasping for breath. The call button fails to bring help in time. The hospital's doctors, some of the best in the nation, are completely mystified by her death. How did this happen?

APOCALYPSE NEARS.

This is not the first such case at the hospital. Just as patients are about to be released with a clean bill of health, their conditions take a devastating turn for the worse.

Accompanied by the newest member of the Women's Murder Club, Yuki Castellano, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer probes deeper into the incidents. Could these cases just be appalling coincidences? Or is a maniac playing God with people's lives? When someone close to the Women's Murder Club begins to exhibit the same frightening symptoms, Lindsay fears no one is safe.

THE 5TH HORSEMAN RIDES.

It is a wild race against time as Lindsay's investigation reveals a hospital administration determined to shield its reputation at all costs. And while the hospital wages an explosive court battle that grips the entire nation, Lindsay and the Women's Murder Club hunt for a merciless killer among its esteemed medical staff.

Review:

"The novel is written in short, snappy chapters, and the authors don't rush to any obvious conclusions, raising The 5th Horseman well above the level of other 'angel of death' thrillers" Associated Press

Review:

"Newcomers and devoted fans alike will love the fifth entry in the prolific Patterson's latest detective series....Patterson, known for a steady stream of artful thrillers, again delivers the fast-paced action that has won him millions of readers." Justice Magazine

Review:

"The solid storytelling, engaging characters and, perhaps most importantly, the anything-can-happen plot lines have made each of the books in this series a notation on the must-read lists of hordes of readers. The 5th Horseman is no exception." BookReporter.com

Review:

"Patterson and Paetro have collaborated again to write a thrilling page-turner with great depth of characters and an exciting plot. This is one of the best mystery series around. Can't wait for book six!" Fresh Fiction
