Book Review: The Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson

July 20, 2015


Review by Benjamin, grade 9

As expected of James Patterson, his book incorporates intrigue, mystery, and betrayal. The Angel family is in an uproar after the double homicide of the parents, Maude and Malcolm in an apartment called Dakota. The “perfect parents” were highly successful as were all of the kids. All of the children are now suspects: Young Hugo, with his incredible strength (no this is not The Incredibles), Matthew, winner of the Heisman Trophy and NFL poster boy, musical mastermind Harry, and Tandy Angel, unemotional and curious. Tandy Angel, an abnormal name that indicates oddity, does not mislead because Tandy is strange along with her siblings. In this case, you can judge a book by its cover. The book is best fit for ages 13-17. You can check out this book from Wake County Libraries.
