A killer is terrorizing San Francisco, and it's up to Homicide Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer to determine if the murders are random, or personally-motivated. In 2ND CHANCE, the second in the Women's Murder Club series, the listener confirms why James Patterson is a bestselling suspense writer, and why Melissa Leo is a rising star narrator. Leo, who also read 1ST TO DIE, the first in the series, gives Boxer the right edge of intensity and warmth. No matter how the plot twists, Leo's flawless performance conveys Boxer's emotions and tone, allowing the novel to maintain its intensity. Jeremy Pivens, who reads the killer's smaller portions, seems out of place, and his polished voice does not fit the killer's hatred and arrogance. D.J.S.
