Confessions: The Private School Murders

In the sequel to the #1 New York Times bestseller Confessions of a Murder Suspect, James Patterson keeps the confessions coming breathlessly as Tandy Angel delves deeper into her own tumultuous history-and proves that she can rise above the sordid Angel legacy.

Wealthy young women are being murdered on Manhattan's exclusive Upper West Side, and the police aren't looking for answers in the right places. Enter Tandy Angel. The first case she cracked was the mystery of her parents' deaths. Now, while she's working to exonerate her brother of his glamorous girlfriend's homicide, she's driven to get involved in the West Side murder spree.

One of the recent victims was a student at Tandy's own elite school. She has a hunch it may be the work of a serial killer, but the NYPD isn't listening to her...and Tandy can't ignore the disturbing fact that she perfectly fits the profile of the killer's targets. Can she untangle the mysteries in time? Or will she be the next victim?

I gave this book a one-star rating based on what goodreads defines as "one star." Simply put, I just didn't like the book.

I'm sorry, but you know I have a hard time writing reviews for books I like. I can tell you everything I hated about a book, but it's hard to explain why I like a book. It's like, "this is a brick.

As always, I... ...more

Confessions of a Murder Suspect and me didn't get along. It was slow, dull, and had really annoying characters, so i didn't think i'd enjoy this one that much.
I was so shocked when i actually liked it, and even more shocked when it started to get really good.
I just can't believe how different th... ...more
