The Midwife Murders
The Midwife Murders | James Patterson, Richard DiLallo
A missing patient is a hospital ward's worst nightmare -- until even more disappear. To Senior Midwife Lucy Ryuan, pregnancy is not an unusual condition, it's her life's work. But when two kidnappings and a vicious stabbing happen on her watch in a university hospital in Manhattan, her focus abruptly changes. Something has to be done, and Lucy is fearless enough to try. Rumors begin to swirl, blaming everyone from the Russian Mafia to an underground adoption network. The feisty single mom teams up with a skeptical NYPD detective to solve the case, but the truth is far more twisted than Lucy could ever have imagined.

It was a fun book. The female lead was completely implausible and she seemed to define every male character she met by whether she fancied them or not. There was a weird section focused on her family which didn't fit in with the rest of the story and felt like a non-sequitur. Overall, though, it was well paced and fun to read, a basic whodunnit with the heart-wrenching context of kidnapping babies. An easy read, not life-changing!

Very poor. Lucy was a hugely unlikeable character and her attitude towards pretty much everyone was just intolerable. So many parts of this book made little to no sense. Can anybody answer a question for me please? When Patterson writes a book with another author does he actually have anything to do with the finished product? He seems to do this a lot so I‘m just wondering!

The plot was good, I enjoyed the mystery and suspense to finding out who what and why but the main character really put me off. She was an arrogant b#$ch to put it politely. Maybe if she was made to be more likeable I'd have enjoyed it more.

Book #4 completed for #Screamathon and Scarathlon. Rarely do I dislike James Patterson‘s main characters ... this was the exception. Pretty much from the jump I wanted to slap Lucy. I powered thru reading this book only for #TeamSlaughter (yes... YOU people!). Ugh.

While the ending was a surprise, I didn‘t really care by the time I got there. Definitely not my favorite 🙁
