21st Birthday

(Women's Murder Club 21)




In the latest instalment in the globally bestselling Women's Murder Club series, SFPD Sergeant Lindsay Boxer vows to protect a twenty-year-old victim long enough to see her twenty-first birthday.

Will she live to see her twenty-first birthday?

When a distraught mother pleads with reporter Cindy Thomas to investigate the disappearance of her daughter, Tara, and her baby granddaughter, Cindy goes straight to SFPD Sergeant Lindsay Boxer.

The prime suspect is Tara's husband, but he tells a conflicting story that paints Tara as a wayward wife, not a missing person.

Is this a tragic case of domestic violence? Or is the truth linked to a more complex network of killings?

As the case grows into something far bigger than any of them could have imagined, the Women's Murder Club will need to work together to unpick the truth from a web of lies.
