This was a fun and slightly goofy book. I'm sure it was supposed to be serious with the murders, but I didn't read it that way. I liked the way the detective was constantly calling Tandoori different names like tiddlywink. It's a story about four siblings whose parents are murdered with them in the house. Tandoori or Tandy, the 16-year-old daughter tries to help the police sold the murder so they won't be charged and finds out all kinds of things about her parents and her family. It's a fun young adult book. ( )

This was a fast paced book. There were alot of surprises throughout the book. Iwould recommend this to anyone that likes mysteries. ( )

This was very quick read. I enjoyed the way Tandy spoke to reader; knowing her thoughts and inner feelings helped me feel connected to her. She admits to being an unreliable narrator and that makes it difficult to figure out what is really going on. After all, Tandy herself says not to trust anything she says. The truth is, she doesn't know what parts of her memories are real but she knows a lot of details are missing.This story is clever with many twists and turns. I know there is at least one more book in this series (and knowing Patterson, probably more). I am looking forward to learning more about Tandy and the Angel family. ( )

Just eh...it seems like the story really tries to be multiple genres all at once, and it doesn't work at all. There is no "meat" to this one. ( )

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?
