James Patterson returns to the genre that made him famous with a thrilling teen detective series about the mysterious and magnificently wealthy Angel family . . . and the dark secrets they're keeping from one another.
On the night Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered, Tandy Angel knows just three things: 1) She was the last person to see herparents alive. 2) The police have no suspects besides Tandy and her three siblings. 3) She can't trust anyone-maybe not even herself. Having grown up under Malcolm and Maud's intense perfectionist demands, no child comes awayundamaged. Tandy decides that she will have to clear the family name, but digging deeper into her powerful parents' affairs is a dangerous - and revealing - game. Who knows what the Angels are truly capable of?

I realize this book was written for the teen market. However, with that acknowledgement the book should still pass the standard test for credibility. Without a spoiler, the very rich parents of 4 children have been murdered in the Dakota condos in New York. The lead detective comes across as the worst stereotype rude rumbled cop. There is no way that police would talk to the underage children of murdered parents reportedly worth in excess of $100 million as if they are street urchins. In addition, a high powered attorney for such a family would never standby and watch his clients be browbeaten by these same cops. The story was unnecessarily choppy and the ending expected. Not this author pairing's best effort.
Yes, The suspense is worth the read
loved all the twists and unknowns in this book.

Interesting series start, didn't hold my attention as some books have in the past. Will probably listen the the second book before I make a decision to follow the series
