add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: On the night Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered, their daughter Tandy knows just three things: 1) She was one of the last people to see her parents alive. 2) The suspect list only includes Tandy and her three siblings. 3) She can’t trust anyone–maybe not even herself.

As Tandy sets out to clear the family name, she begins to recall flashes of experiences long buried in her vulnerable psyche. These memories shed light on her family’s dark secrets, and digging deeper into her powerful parents’ affairs proves to be a disturbing and dangerous game. Who knows what any of the Angels are truly capable of?


I really enjoyed James Patterson books so far. I really his Fantasy and science fiction books. Lately i been wanting to open up more on mystery novels. I used to just stay away from it, cause i’m not much a fan of them. But i did want to read this one for sometime now. The book just stood out to me. I was a little suppressed how much i did end up enjoying the book.

Confessions of a murder suspect starts off right away with a bang. Tandy wake up to sirens and cops at her door she finds out her parents are dead. Tandy suspects her own angel family. Trusting her own family becomes harder and harder more the story goes. Tandy and her brothers get blamed for the killing of there parents. She tries to discover the real killer and along the way she discovers more secrets of the past then she bargain for. Tandy slowly learns that her parents might be the reason why her and her brothers are not normal.

The story hints to forgotten love, a love that was taken from her. Not only do Tandy have to find the killer she also gets flashes of the past that she has forgotten and you are thrown into that mystery along with Tandy. I liked how the character talks to the reader along with the book. you know she is talking to you when she says “friend”. it was a nice touch. You got to really know the character, and you could somewhat relate to her. She has always been somewhat emotionless but you see how much she really does care and how it wasn’t her fault she didn’t have emotions.

The story is packed with Twist & Turns. The suspense will seriously have you biting you nails. The ending wasn’t what i predicted, it will shock you and start questioning “When?, what?, why?” the ending throws you into more mystery’s you wont find out until you read the next book.

Overall Loved the plot, the characters, the writing, everything. I highly recommend this book to all the mystery craving fans out in the world. After reading this book i just feel like i really should start reading more mystery’s, that not all will disappoint me. Can’t wait to read the next book.
