Publisher's Summary

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?

Complete Torture!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

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.

Great story...quick finish

What did you love best about Confessions of a Murder Suspect?

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.

Pretty Good Book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It took a moment to get into it, but once it got going it was a good book.

Good mystery

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.

Can Never Go Wrong with James Patterson!

Any additional comments?

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.

Interesting storyline

I wasn't expecting the story to move in that direction, very reminiscent of the Max character. Interesting to say the least!

I loved this book -- it was a perfect read for me

If you could sum up Confessions of a Murder Suspect in three words, what would they be?

Can't put down.

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked all of the scenes between Tandy and Capricorn Caputo, the detective investigating the deaths in the family.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Couldn’t get past the first hour

Although I’m a huge fan of the authors, I couldn’t get past the first hour. And I tried...and tried and tried.
Didn’t care for narrators voice and the writing is just not Patterson/Paetro caliber. Not quite sure what happened here since most reviews were scored high. Maybe the book is better toward the end but I’m not going to waste my time.

Not even into the first hour, I’m turning this book off, selecting another and going back to vacuuming.
