14th Deadly Sin
When two dead bodies are found inside a wrecked car on the Golden Gate Bridge, Detective Lindsay Boxer knows it's no accident.
As she investigates, disturbing news reaches her ears: a former police colleague, now unmasked as a ruthless murderer, is back in San Francisco after escaping custody, bent on paying a visit to some old friends...
14th Deadly Sin
The Women's Murder Club are recovering from their most recent ordeal. With reporter Cindy Thomas having healed from her gunshot wound and attorney Yuki Castellano considering a change in career after her own near-death experience, Detective Lindsay Boxer is just happy they're all still alive.
But trouble is never far away. A video emerges of a brutal murder, one committed by masked figures – wearing cop uniforms. Overnight, the entire San Francisco police department have become suspects.
On the other side of the city, dozens of witnesses see a woman viciously stabbed to death in the streets – but there are no clues, and no apparent motive. All Lindsay has to go on is one significant date.
As public hysteria and anti-police sentiment take over the city, Lindsay and her friends in the Women’s Murder Club might be the only thing standing between San Francisco and a lethal city-wide crime wave. Lindsay must face up to a disturbing possibility: the vicious gang terrorising the city might be more familiar than she'd imagined...
Detective Lindsay Boxer is dispatched to a luxury hotel, where four are dead: a man who checked in under a false name, a man and a woman in a room full of surveillance equipment, and a maid who saw too much.
Her investigation takes her down unexpected paths – and things take a turn for the worse when her husband Joe abruptly goes missing. Disaster strikes when an explosive tragedy rocks San Francisco, and this time Lindsay finds evidence that seems to lead to her own front door...
Fifteen months ago, Detective Lindsay Boxer had the perfect life with her beautiful baby daughter and her loving husband Joe. That was before she discovered everything she knew about Joe was a lie – and his betrayal cuts deeper than anything she's ever known.
As Lindsay grapples with her personal life, a wave of mysterious heart attacks strikes across San Francisco, killing seemingly unrelated victims. Is it just chance – or is something more sinister at work?
At the same time, a maniac bomber captured by the combined efforts of Joe and Lindsay is on
trial – and his defence raises damning questions about Lindsay and Joe’s investigation. Before long, Lindsay faces the prospect of her being the one on trial…
Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates a methodical yet unpredictable series of shootings of the homeless in San Francisco. A tip from a confidential informant leads her to disturbing conclusions – something has gone very wrong inside the police department itself.
Lindsay’s friends in the Women’s Murder Club are concerned that she’s taking the crimes too much to heart as the hunt for the killer lures Lindsay out of her jurisdiction – and into danger...
