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 are 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 could have come away undamaged. Tandy decides 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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Patterson and Paetro deliver a fast-paced mystery. The unconventional characters add tension and excitement to the story, as each child reacts to the murders in a different way…Recommended for middle-school fans of realistic fiction/action thrillers or lovers of books with strong female protagonists.”


  • “Tandy’s determined to find the killer and discovers a few things about herself along the way. The story is narrated by Tandy in short chapters written in a confessional tone; they move the plot along, but are light on true crime investigation.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Fans of Patterson’s fast-paced style and surprising plot twists will embrace the beginning of another series.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “The complex, clever plot keeps the pages turning as it wends its way to a surprising resolution and several cliffhangers.”


  • “Galvin makes Tandy sound youthful, angry, and strangely unemotional about losing her parents. Galvin also does a good job with Tandy’s brothers, including twin brother Harry, who comes across as sensitive and weepy. NFL star Matthew is furious, loud, and threatening, and ten-year-old Hugo is realistically upset. She also speaks in a believable New York accent for detectives as she keeps the short chapters humming along in this fast-paced story, which leaves some unanswered questions, ensuring that listeners will anticipate the next series title.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Macjest | 2/11/2014

    " I'm being generous giving this a three considering how many times I rolled my eyes while listening to this. Tandoori Angel wakes up one might to discover that her parents have been murdered. They live at the Dakota. Soon she and her above average siblings are suspects. Why did I roll my eyes? Because everyone is exceedingly above average in an annoying way. Still, a few jaw droppers happened that kept my interest. "

    " Everyone in her family is special and a sociopath....and that's all the protagonist talks about. Oh we're so crazy, oh we're so special. If I'd known what a boring ending this had I wouldn't have bothered. I never read the ending first but if I had I'd have saved myself six hours and fourteen dollars. Ugh. "

    " James Patterson's creativity knows no bounds, confessions of a murder suspect is an example of just that. This book kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time i read this book. I finished this book in one day because i just couldn't put it down. I hope to see a sequel to this book because i absolutely adore Tandy and her family, this book has broken my scale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jeremy | 2/4/2014

    " This book started out so promising but when it got towards the last couple of chapters, it completely flopped. I was hoping for some shocking or creative ending but was disappointed to find that it was instead a very humdrum finish. The writing style of the book was very interesting because the main character and narrator of the book, Tandy, spoke directly to the reader making for one very unique book. There were also a lot of lose ends that the narrator brought up and said she would explain at a later time, but never really did. "
