4th of July

release date: May 01, 2005
4th of July
A young girl is killed in the crossfire after a routine arrest goes terribly wrong, and Lt. Lindsay Boxer has to defend herself against a charge of police brutality. In a landmark trial that transfixes the nation, Lindsay fights to save her career and her sanity. While awaiting trial, Lindsay escapes to the tranquility of the beautiful town of Half Moon Bay. But the peaceful community there is reeling from a string of unspeakable murders. Working with her friends in the Women''s Murder Club, Lindsay finds a link between these killings and a case she worked on years before - an unsolved murder that has haunted her ever since. As summer comes into full swing, Lindsay battles for her life on two fronts: before a judge and jury as her trial comes to a climax and facing unknown adversaries who will do anything to keep her from the truth about the killings. It all comes to a head before the big annual 4th of July celebration on the waterfront at Half Moon Bay. "Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried. There''s no stopping his imagination." -New York Times Book Review "Patterson''s skill at building suspense is enviable." -Kansas City Star "When it comes to constructing a harrowing plot, author James Patterson can turn a screw all right." -New York Daily News

The visuals are often brilliant photographic images, married to dazzling type, spat out of the printer in colorful, double-page spreads. But here''s the compliant voiced by advertising professionals who are in a position to hire: they say today''s books fall flat because they are full of "ad-like objects", "heartless" ads, and imitations of ads that have won awards, instead of origina ideas that spring from solid preparatory work and the creator''s unique perspective."--Taken from introduction.
