What It's About!

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 her parents 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 away undamaged. 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 a good mystery story. Especially the fast-paced ones that leave you feeling satisfied when the mystery has been solved. Confessions of a Murder Suspect was definitely a fast-paced mystery, though it didn't leave me very satisfied.

The story itself was really good. Tandoori or "Tandy", and her brothers are the main, if not only, suspects in their parents murder, and the whole book is based on figuring out who the killer is. I was really intrigued by it and couldn't wait to find out if the killer was who I thought it was (it wasn't, lol). Even though the story was good, I found it really hard to connect with any of the characters, I just felt like I just couldn't get to know them very well and really get into their world. Tandy and her family were a bit strange, and there were more questions than there were answers by the end of the book. I kept waiting to get some real inside on their lives but I never really felt like I did.

With fast, short chapters, I finished it fairly quickly. Overall I enjoyed it and will probably pick up the second book when it comes out.
