Detective Lindsay Boxer and her friend Yuki Castellano are out shopping with Yuki's mother Keiko when Keiko drops in the middle of the busy street. It looks like she's had a stroke and Yuki starts to panic. She is rushed to the San Francisco Medical Center and admitted to the ICU. Over drinks that evening at Susie's, with her friends in the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay learns of a huge malpractice suit against the San Francisco Medical Center. In the last few years, dozens of patients who were admitted to the emergency room seemed to recover and then died suspicious deaths. Is Yuki's mother safe? In a place where the lives of patients are quite literally in others' hands, will Lindsay and her friends be able to establish whom they can trust?

After some truly exceptional books, Patterson has consistently delivered entertaining, readable books that are good. Nothing truly exceptional about them and perfect for a plane ride, an afternoon at the beach, or light reading but not something that will stay in my memory as one of my favorites

James Patterson is a publisher's dream. He produces two hugely popular mystery/thriller series that routinely hit the best seller lists. He even makes appearances on Castle.

5th Horsman is the fifth (how appropriate) installment in his Women's Murder Club series. It finds our four female protagonists dealing with three concurrent cases; a hospital malpractice suit, a murder spree in the same hospital and a series of deaths of young escorts.

And that is the problem with this book. There is too much going on. By packing more action than a Bruckheimer movie into 410 pages, Patterson (and co-author Maxine Paetro) sacrifice things like character development. It would have been a far better book if we had only had the hospital malpractice/hospital murder plot and they left the escort murders for another book.

The book is also a very quick read. With chapters lasting three or four pages at most, a strong reader can plow through this book in less than a day. Not high literature, but a fun way to spend a few hours.
