21st Birthday: A young mother and baby daughter go missing (Women’s Murder Club 21) Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Brought to you by Penguin.
Will she live to see her 21st 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.

Everything procceds as usual: Lindsay investigates, Claire provides the medical detail, Yuki agonises if she’s done enough to put the guilty party away, and Cindy chases the story that will give her a best selling true crime book.
There is an unusual twist that derives from the husband’s own background but to be honest I didn’t feel this was one of the best of the series. The suspect is unsympathetic; the sections on Lindsay’s home life (cute child, unbelievably supportive husband) feel like they’d been clipped from earlier books; and whilst the ending provided an explanation, it just all felt unfinished somehow.
A series I normally enjoy, so hopefully better luck next time.
I almost gave up on JP novels as many of the more recent ones felt very shallow and formulaic ,like they were part of a mass production plan to make money off his reputation but frankly, failed to deliver the goods. However, I relented with this one as I have every other title in the WMC series.
21st Birthday is definitely Boxer and the team back to their best. I loved every page. Authentic JP style with a gritty story that pulled on the heart strings and kept you guessing. Top job!!
