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 love James Patterson and the fact that his many publications are so eclectic and original.
The narrations were brilliant. The story unexpected, and I thoroughly enjoyed it
Not exactly surprised.
The children finding out about their medication.
A teenager. HUGE Patterson fan....Are you sure Patterson wrote this? Storyline was good in the beginning but lost me after the first few chapters. The reader's voice was a little annoying (ok, REALLY annoying). I'm asking for my credit back.
I am a huge James Patterson fan. I did like the book, but felt like the author was quick to finish, like he was late for dinner. The story is good, but wish the ending was more thought out.
It took a moment to get into it, but once it got going it was a good book.
Say something about yourself!
Different, fascinating and intriging
The storyline kept you guessing.
No, I have not but I will check on other audios she has performed.
Never know what treasures you will get on sale!
a humble, seeking, loudmouth, Jesus lover, and sometimes heretic explores his questions, concerns, and varied interests through books.
I am a big fan of the Alex Cross series and The Women's Murder Club so I figured any other mystery by James Patterson would be good. I was right! This is a good book about a group of siblings ranging in age from adolescence to mid 20s. They are from a very rich, very dysfunctional family. The parents are killed early on and it's a game of Clue to see who done it.
Emma Galvin is an excellent narrator, especially when the protagonist is a young woman.
Let me start off by saying I'm a huge JP fan, so I'm probably a little biased and probably rated this higher than it should be.
This was a decent story line where the narrator would tell the story in a way that was both frustrating and intriguing. My only concerns is that everything did not wrap up into a nice and neat little bow. Now, if they are discussed further in the next in the series, fine, that works for me. However, if not, that's not cool James! I will read the next in the series, so only time will tell.
Can't put down.
The narrator -- Tandy Angel. She's fun, she's confused, she's bright, she's likeable, she's young, and she's a well-developed character. The narrator was really well suited for this character.
I liked all of the scenes between Tandy and Capricorn Caputo, the detective investigating the deaths in the family.
I could have had I had enough time in one sitting. I really enjoyed this book, but then Maxine Paetro always minimizes the gore and maximizes the character interest.
The ending was expected, but it worked well enough. It was the weakest part of the story, but the narrator is just so good that she made up for it.
