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 will eventually read all of James Patterson's stories. I enjoy his stories and his commitment to juvenile reading programs. He also encourages local bookstores!
The story, although interesting in parts, exceeds the bounds of reality. Although it is common for story lines to stretch life's realities, the extremes peppered throughout this book were major distractions. To make matters worse, those exaggerations provided the necessary building blocks which allowed the main character to "solve" the puzzle.
The book also left many unanswered questions, which could have been used to make the book more believable and interesting.
I will likely listen to the second book because I already purchased it.
I have enjoyed a number of James Patterson books but this one fell flat.
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
THIS BOOK IS RIVETING AND DELIGHTFUL. JAMES HAS LEFT UNTOWARD LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL SITUATIONS BEHIND AND HAS STARTED TO RELY ON HIS SKILL AS AN EXCELLENT WRITER WITH THE STORY GRABBING YOU AND NEVER LETTING YOU GO. I REALLY ENJOYED THE WONDERFUL STORY LINE, A THOUGHT, OF WHICH IS NOT A COMMON ONE MOST WOULD GRAB AND MAKE AN ENTIRE BOOK OUT TO BE A GREAT ONE. I HAD ALMOST GIVEN UP ON JAMES PATTERSON, AS AN EXCELLENT WRITER AS SINCE HIS TEAMING UP WITH OTHER WRITERS, HIS STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE SLIPPED TERRIBLY. YOU WOULD NEVER TAKE HIS BOOKS ON A FAMILY OUTING OR A LONG TRIP; THIS ONE IS SAFE AND I DO BELIEVE YOU WOULD KEEP DRIVING FARTHER TILL YOU FINISHED IT. IT IS JUST THAT GOOD. MAXINE PAETRO, MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU FOR KEEPING ME SITTING FOR AN ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE BOOK AND IT IS CHRISTMAS TIME WITH A THOUSAND THINGS TO DO. YOU GUYS WORKED WONDERFULLY TOGETHER AND I WILL LOOK FOR MORE OF YOUR BOOKS TO READ AS A TEAM OR AS A SINGLE. WHAT A DELICIOUS STORYLINE!!
It's a teenager's read...Not what I thought..
It was interesting though. Still a James Patterson fan
It was like being told a story from a seasoned storyteller.
The suspense of who the murderer was, and hearing the secrets unfold.
She embodied the character of the young girl.
Confessions of a Murder Suspect
I drive many miles every weekend. My son is in boarding school, and is a college recruit for football. Every weekend I am on the road to football games, or some school function associated with being a parent of a senior athlete. I really enjoy listening to books from audible. This book was fun, and not so deep. I think the reader made it even more fun.
