"8th Confession" is the (surprise!) eighth in The Women's Murder Club series, and of all the books so far, this one had one of the creepiest form of serial killer. The story's main premise is the killings of wealthy couples and individuals, though at first Det. Lindsey Boxer and the San Francisco Police Department are unable to pinpoint exactly how the killings occur. There are no physical signs, and the toxicology comes up inconclusive, but it is obvious that homicides have taken place. I enjoyed the story, but I have to admit I wanted to finish the book to get past descriptions of this particular killer and their actions (my own personal phobias at work). Still, as always, the story was paced well and kept me reading, regardless of my aversion to some of the details.
