Book Review: Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson
November 9th, 2014 by Coral

Today, I’m reviewing a book I read recently by a well known author. James Patterson’s Confessions of a Murder Suspect.  The first in a series, it immediately intrigues the reader. Not only does it bring in mystery about the main driving plot device, the murder of the main character’s parents, but also about the main character herself.

Tandy Angel, the narrator, takes the reader along as she tries to solve the mystery, uncovering more secrets about her family, and finding she has secrets about herself she doesn’t even know about.  One of the most suspenseful parts of her narration is the fact that she has a dark past, and when Tandy has a memory too painful to confront, we don’t see it. She doesn’t’ think about it, she avoids it, and leaves the reader completely in the dark until she works up the courage to acknowledge the event.

Malcolm and Maud are the parents, murdered at the beginning of the book, they launch everything into a rollercoaster of emotions and puzzles. The Angel parents raised their children with brutal strictness. The Angel parents were flawed people, there is no doubt about it, and their intentions are also clouded on occasion, but they are all the more fascinating for it. Tandy, in investigating their murder, begins to question the benevolence of her parents, bringing in entirely new levels of emotional turmoil.

All in all, the character cast is dynamic and compelling, the plot is suspenseful and intriguing, and I highly recommend this book. It’s a great read, and, of course, we have James Patterson’s track record to go off of.

 

If you’re interested, I have a link to it on Amazon right here, enjoy, and don’t forget to check back to see new stories and writing thoughts.
