The Midwife Murders – James Patterson & Richard DiLallo
James Patterson never disappoints. He and coauthor Richard DiLallo come up with an amateur sleuth, Lucy Ryuan, a senior midwife.
How can delivering babies be dangerous? How would a midwife like Lucy get to investigate anything related to her profession? Well, it starts with kidnapped babies, or rather, stolen babies from the hospital. Although outraged and concerned, Lucy can’t do much but keeps her vigilance. However, when things get too close to home, as in her patients, she teams up with the detective in charge to get to the bottom.
Lucy is one fiery single mom. She ignores dangers until the last minute when she can’t back out. Her adventures make for one thrilling read.
