No. 7 Ocean Drive is a multimillion-dollar beachfront house in the Hamptons, but its beautiful exterior hides a horrific past. This house was the setting for a series of depraved killings that have never been solved.
Neglected, empty and rumoured to be cursed, it's known as the Murder House, and locals keep their distance.
Detective Jenna Murphy has moved to the area to escape her troubled past and rehabilitate a career on the rocks. But when a Hollywood power broker and his mistress are found dead in the abandoned Murder House, Jenna becomes involved in a case that at first seems open and shut, but reveals more secrets than she could possibly imagine.
As more bodies surface and Jenna is drawn deeper into the dark history of No. 7, she must risk her own life to expose the truth - before the Murder House claims another victim.

This story will keep you guessing. Just when you think you have it figured out-another twist! Great listen for a road trip, a lazy weekend or doing work around the house. Enjoy! We did!!!!
Fast read, and if you like mysteries like I do you'll like this. I did guess who done it fairly early on but it still kept me intrigued.
This kept me on the edge of my seat all the way through. This book kept me guessing from start to finish and I couldn't put it down. Narration was really well done as well.
I loved this book. I love the James Patterson books! This one had so many twists and turns and certainly kept me guessing! Not only did it keep me guessing but it kept me on the edge of my seat. Great narrator as well! Another good one from Mr. Patterson!
no, uhh I know who did it now...
Really enjoyed the narration and would try a book based on their narration.
I hate courtroom dramas. I hate books where someone is falsely charged with a crime. They are just obvious time consumers and a lazy way to move the story along.This book had both. Fortunately, it also had a good story after these, then of course they had to throw it all in again. I made it through,tho. In the end it was worth the credit, but a bit of a disappointment.
I've read a number of Patterson books, but if this is an example of his newest and latest style, he should hang up his pen and try something else. He puts out a lot of work in a year lately, usually co-written by other authors. I wonder who Patterson is trying to please, the co-writers or his banker. Make no mistake, the narrators have done a fine job, but their material is very poorly done. I look forward to more of their work, but I will certainly think twice before I buy another Patterson book.
What a brilliant book keeps you hooked and guessing from start to end. Would definitely recommend xxxx
Brilliant book, James Patterson kept me guessing right to the end, I kept swapping around to who I thought did it and what the ending would be! I almost burnt the dinner because I wanted to listen to the end. I have to be honest I do fast forward the really gruesome bits but don't feel I miss out on the plot.
I used to read JP booked all time until Swimsuit which I found too gruesome it put me off reading any other of JP's books but now I have found the audio versions it is great you just ff any bits you don't want to listen to. Murder House exceeded my expectations.
"Murder house "
great read, kept you on the edge, Loved the twist at the end expected one of the twist 's but not the other! The narrator was great though out too!
"Got me hooked from the beginning"
I always like James Patterson books and this is no different. From the beginning I was intrigued and following each of the characters. Twists in the plot were great and I was guessing until the end. Very well narrated, I like the male and female voices.
Yes I would, and I probably will one day. Excellent story, wonderful narration.
It is hard to point out just one.
I never listened to any of Jay Snyder and Therese Plummer performance before, but I would really love to in the future. My favorite is Jay Snyder now. I love him so much I will listen to books I have never heard of just because he is reading them to me. Therese Plummer - I really like her narration as well.
Oh yes! I finished it in two days.
I love the book I couldn't put the book once I started reading I wonted to finish it
"Great story and amazing narration"
Loved this story, loved the plot twists, thought I had nailed the outcome, then changed my mind, then changed it back again, then changed my mind....repeat to fade. The narration was simply amazing.....the emotional investment in the narrative shone through....well done!
"Started better than it ended"
The book really annoyed me in the end, the so called amazing cop got everything wrong all the time, and was way off the mark. I was very much enjoying it until the last quarter or so, then it became dull and corny.
"not bad yarn"
am entertaining tale of murder & intrigue the dialogue was more like a play but overall good
Kept me guessing till the end...throughly enjoyed this book..
Now I need to find another book, that's just as good!!
