    These are bookshots compiled into one book. There's an Alex Cross Story, a Women's Murder Club Story, and a Michael Bennett Story. These are all books/stories I've heard/read and enjoyed. I was kind of surprised that they are items we've already heard. As far as recommendations, I find we each have our own opinions. Some folks like this format, and others are hugely disappointed. I'll leave that up to each of you. These are bookshots compiled into one book. There's an Alex Cross Story, a Women's Murder Club Story, and a Michael Bennett Story.

    This is a collection of three shorter James Patterson stories. Each story is from one pf Patterson’s most popular series: Alex Cross, The Women’s Murder Club and Michael Bennett. The first story: DETECTIVE CROSS: An Alex Cross Story occurs during Cross’ suspension from work for his use of deadly force. Ales has re-opened his psychology practice in the basement of his home and is presently attempting to help a patient who received a court order for treatment. This patient is suffering from PTSD, b This is a collection of three shorter James Patterson stories. Each story is from one pf Patterson’s most popular series: Alex Cross, The Women’s Murder Club and Michael Bennett. The first story: DETECTIVE CROSS: An Alex Cross Story occurs during Cross’ suspension from work for his use of deadly force. Ales has re-opened his psychology practice in the basement of his home and is presently attempting to help a patient who received a court order for treatment. This patient is suffering from PTSD, blaming herself for not noting an IED that led to the death of her fellow soldiers. Little does Alex realize how much he will learn from this broken woman. In the meantime, his wife Bree is charged with finding an anonymous caller/bomber who gives Bree hints of where bombs can be found around Washington DC. Working with the FBI, ATF and other national alphabets, the DC Police must learn the motive to find the bomber; can Cross’ patient give Alex what he needs to learn the identity before Congress is taken out? The Second Story: THE MEDICAL EXAMINER: A Women's Murder Club Story begins with Lindsey Boxer and family readying to leave on a well deserved vacation, one that will make her miss the biggest case yet. The tale begins when ME Clair Washington comes to work after a hectic night for the morgue. As Clair pulls out a drawer to take out a corpse to autopsy, she hears a strange sound coming from the cooler. Investigating the noise, Claire finds one of her dead bodies is very much alive, she suffers from a rare disease which makes it impossible for medics to decipher if the person is indeed alive or dead. The woman in question was shot and left for dead at a local Hotel; her body underneath a man who was shot to death. This Millionairess cannot recall the events that lead her to the morgue or the man she was found with. Her memories will slowly return; but how will they affect the Women’s Murder Club? The third story: MANHUNT: A Michael Bennett Story . Despite this being good, this series is too straight laced these days; I wish we could get the old writer back! In this tale, Michael Bennett again breaks all the rules searching for a man who first drove a vehicle through the NY City crowd attending the annual Thanksgiving Parade, and then detonated an explosive in the vehicle. Bennett was on hand to see and hear the man; his memory and the one yelled word are the only clues to find this terrorist… Nice to be able to read all o my favorites in one sitting!

    Three perfectly fine short stories, but I was bummed it wasn’t a crossover book! How fun would it be for Alex Cross, Michael Bennett, and Lindsay Boxer to work together? Make it happen, James Patterson!!!

    it really irritates me that he re-released book shots together as a new book, knowing that most die-hard Patterson fans will buy literally anything he puts out, not realizing that they've already read it. I mean, the individual stories weren't terrible...but I'm mad that I thought I was getting some new material, when in fact that was not 100% true. it really irritates me that he re-released book shots together as a new book, knowing that most die-hard Patterson fans will buy literally anything he puts out, not realizing that they've already read it.

    The first two stories were decent but the third was awful. I listened to this as an audiobook so the quality may have been more to the reader. It was a decent diversion while driving.

    Triple Homicide presents three new crime stories for James Patterson. Starting off with Alex Cross and his wife searching for a bomber before he strikes again. This story is an intense storyline that is a page turner with an interesting ending. Then the most thrilling story comes when the Women’s Murder Club deals with a woman walking up in the morgue. Full of non stop mystery, this truly has an ending that is original.

Triple Homicide ends with Michael Bennett dealing with a bombing during the Thanksgiving parade. Being the first time in which I’ve read a Michael Bennett story, I was taken into a new yet somewhat familiar world. The mystery seemed to lack originality in regards to suspects, yet featured an interesting storyline. This however leaves the reader with a couple questions at the end. Overall a good book of Patterson’s and a definite must for any fan of his.

    This book mislead me in the teaser, as I thought it was one long thriller, using all three of these character lines. However, it was three short thrillers rolled into one book. The shorter thrillers were good to listen to on walks, and they were all interesting story lines. Just not what I was hoping for, but good just the same.

    This book was three books. First book was an Alex cross story, second book was a Women’s Murder Club and the last book was a Michael Bennett book that I had already read. The first two were okay, nothing special and I Have already reported what I thought of the last one.

    This is a good read if you read the series that these characters are from. I think it makes the stories more interesting because you can connect with the characters right from the start. I wasn’t crazy about the Michael Bennett story (the third one) but I loved the first two.

First time I have ever given a Patterson book less than five stars. I am still a no. 1 fan and am looking forward to the next NEW book.

    This ebook contains three novellas with Cross, the Women's Murder Club & Michael Bennet as leading characters. Cross - concerns himself with a bomber whose aims to change the Senate vote about the finances of the Veterans, it looks like the congress does or cannot (both are so real) make a decision in time which means that a lot of money gets lost to the war veterans and the promise of the nation to take care of his warriors seems to be a lie.

Women's murder Club - A woman rises from a table in the morgue and is surprised that she is shot and goes home. It is up to the ladies to find out what has happened. Micheal Bennet - witnesses a terrorist attack on the Thanksgivings parade and gives the surviving terrorist chase. He does lose them and is added to a FBI taskforce to apprehend to surviving culprit of this attack. He will soon find out that this terrorist attack is far more than what it seems. All three novellas are likable but none has the wow factor, they are decent entertainment and pass the time as is with anything from the Patterson factory.

    Three previously published stories tied together in one is presented here in Triple Homicide. The first deals with an Alex Cross Story when an anonymous caller gets in touch with Chief Bree Stone threatening to let loose on the Washington Mall using an IED. It's 'your worst nightmare' says the caller when she asked who it was calling her. Could it be Master Gunnery Sergeant the deaf vet with an ax to grind? Could it be a vet whose under duress suffering from PTSD? Could it be a loved one of a vet who Three previously published stories tied together in one is presented here in Triple Homicide.

Could it be a vet whose under duress suffering from PTSD? Could it be a loved one of a vet who is concerned over the recent actions or inactions of Congress to help those who served? Well I'll let you in on a secret it's one of the three mentioned above. In the second part we enter The Women's Murder Club involving a woman and her lover not her husband. Oops... talk about having your hand in the cookie jar! Wrong place wrong time?! A shooter enters the room, blows away the lover, and wounds the millionairess leaving her for dead. The woman survives after coming too in a morgue. Oh yeah, well it turns out that some people suffer from what's known as catalepsy. She is one of them! Her husband Robert is dumbfounded and she's now filing for divorce. Wait! What?! It turns out Robert has a secret sexual orientation and relationship and she wants no part of it. On with the show folks... Now on to the third part of the Michael Bennett story involving a terrorist and a major parade. Holiday Terror is the new dubbed name but for me it was so bad I didn't even take notes on it. Someone attacked innocent bystanders in front of Michael at a Thanksgiving Day Parade and the hunt is on to bring the person in. It's not one of J.P's finest works but was good enough to barely squeak on by. You know it's always hit or miss and for me this was not what I hoped.

    unique 3 story book all involving James PAtterson. The first was about Alex Cross trying to solve random bombings in downtown DC. Alex's wife Bree would receive a phone call alerting her that there was going to be a bomb but the damage was always minimal. Then Kate WIlliams, a troubled young lady going to Alex for counseling developed a theory on who was doing the bombing. It ended up being a boy named Mickey whose dad had lost his legs and 1 arm when an AED blew up in Afghanistan. HE was trying unique 3 story book all involving James PAtterson.

It ended up being a boy named Mickey whose dad had lost his legs and 1 arm when an AED blew up in Afghanistan. HE was trying to get the Senates attention to protect the care of veterans. The second story was from the Womens Murder Club. A naked man and woman were found with multiple gunshot wounds dead in Warwick hotel but all of her jewelry was missing and he had no ID on him. 6 hours after being at the morgue the woman miraculously comes to and the questions flew. Ends up she had married a much younger man for the companionship but would regularly meet this guy for sex in a motel. Her husband had a friend who was gay and he decided that if he could get rid of Joan Murphy, he could have her husband all to himself. The 3rd story was from Michael Bennett series. They were at a Macy Thanksgiving parade when a truck drove into the crowd killing several people and then he blew up the truck he had driven. The chase ensued. Darya from Russia came to help Michael who had been the only person to see the guy in person. It ended strangely with the man Tehir Marat being killed by Darya but he had been forced to do those things because his wife and child were being held. The story never addressed that and you're left not being sure if Darya was involved or not

    I’ve been a fan of James Patterson since I read Season of the Machete in the late ‘70’s so, when I saw this book advertised I simply had to give it a look. I’ve read all of his Alex Cross novels, and have already pre-ordered Target Alex Cross which is coming in November. How could I possibly pass up the novella, Detective Cross, which kicks off Triple Homicide. It’s a quick read, the story of a bomber who doesn’t really want to hurt anyone, or does he?

I’ve read all of his Alex Cross novels, and have already pre-ordered Target Alex Cross which is coming in November. How could I possibly pass up the novella, Detective Cross, which kicks off Triple Homicide. It’s a quick read, the story of a bomber who doesn’t really want to hurt anyone, or does he? Patterson lays bare the plight of disabled and homeless veterans in our society today while entertaining us with master storytelling. He follows this up with another novella, Medical Examiner, which introduced me to the Women’s Murder Club. I had not previously read anything from this series Patterson writes with Maxine Paetro, although I had certainly heard of these ladies before, and I can truthfully say I may well delve into these books at some future date. This particular story starts out with a dead woman coming back to life in the morgue and only gets more intriguing from that point on. And finally we have New York City detective Michael Bennett in a story co-written by James O. Born titled Manhunt. I have read a number of the Michael Bennett stories and was certainly not disappointed by this one. It begins with a bomb during the Thanksgiving Day Parade and ends with a deadly standoff by the seawall in New York harbor. Along the way Detective Bennett does his very best to disobey orders and rub people the wrong way. All-in-all this was a fun way to spend the afternoon.

    Three stories in one book. I hadn't read anything by James Patterson in quite some time. The first story was about the classic Detective Alex Cross. Not much has changed, Alex Cross loves his current wife (a police chief herself) and still has the wonderful, gourmet cooking, advice-giving Nana Mama to take care of everything in their family home. Simple story line, always a little personal to Detective Cross and he still likes to break a rule or two and will always get his bad guy. Story two was a Three stories in one book.

Story two was a Women's Murder Club Story which was co-written with Maxine Paetro. Again, simply written and not enogh of a gripping story to consider any other titles in the series. Lastly, a story with the character Michael Bennett (another character I hadn't read about from Patterson) This story had to do with Bennett witnessing a bombing during the annual Thanksgiving Parade in NYC. I might look into the other titles in the series for this character, a NYPD cop with a big family. It seems Patterson has his formula for cranking out books down pat...and the cowriting partnerships are becoming more common. In the meantime, I feel the stories are not much to my liking anymore.

    This book contains three short stories from three of Patterson's favorite characters ... Alex Cross, the gals of the Women's Murder Club, and Michael Bennett. "Detective Cross" - Alex Cross This story actually focuses more on Alex's wife, Chief of Detectives Bree Stone, especially in the beginning. Alex is working as a psychiatrist during his suspension from law enforcement. He does get involved later on in the book as his client wants to help with Bree's investigation.

"The Medical Examiner" - Women's Murder Club I've read this one before, and rated it 2 stars because I was so disappointed that Claire, my favorite character, was not featured prominently in a novella bearing her title. This time, the story was a bit more satisfactory. Three stars. "Manhunt: - Michael Bennett This was an entertaining short story and makes me want to get back into the Michael Bennett series. I read the first book and enjoyed his ability to juggle his job as a detective and his home life as a single father to 10 children. Three stars.

With a bill on deck for refunding Veteran's Hospitals and support programs for our wounded warriors, those congressmen are leaning toward denial - until threatened. And then they only pass it by 2 votes. Dishearteningly too close to reality. I had read the other two short stories (Michael Bennett and Women's Murder Club) earlier.

It gets tricky when the Russian government, Russian mob and Russian hit men are all involved. Overall a good read!

    Triple Homocide by James Peterson is part of the Alex Cross series. But it seems to be not one of the better Alex Cross books. I recently read one of his Michael Bennett series books which is much better. This book was dry and was who cares. I tried to feign interest like all of the other Lex Cross books that I enjoyed. This one missed a lot and the story was extra thin. If he is continually going to write his novels like his novellas I will spend my money elsewhere.

    I read this because of it being #10.5 in the Michael Bennett series. Little did I know it was 3 short stories of 3 series of Patterson’s. I was thinking all three stories were going to merge in this book. I enjoyed the Alex Cross story quite a bit. I may read the series at some point. The women’s murder club was ok. The storyline was interesting and it kind of grew on me, but o don’t think I would read the series. Then finally - I get to the one I was waiting for. The Michael Bennett portion.

    The 3 short stories here are reasonably okay, in the sense that they are entertaining enough to finish them, because of the sympathetic characters. In the first story, Alex Cross deals with bomb threats, so no homicide there. The second story features the Women's murder club, with Cindy, the reporter, and Claire, the medical examiner at the forefront, and finally the third story, was maybe the best, featuring Michael Bennett, with all his children attending NY's Macy's Parade when a crazy man plo The 3 short stories here are reasonably okay, in the sense that they are entertaining enough to finish them, because of the sympathetic characters.
