On the night Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered, their daughter Tandy knows just three things: 1) She was one of the last people to see her parents alive. 2) The suspect list only includes Tandy and her three siblings. 3) She can't trust anyone--maybe not even herself. 

As Tandy sets out to clear the family name, she begins to recall flashes of experiences long buried in her vulnerable psyche. These memories shed light on her family's dark secrets, and digging deeper into her powerful parents' affairs proves to be a disturbing and dangerous game. Who knows what any of the Angels are truly capable of?

     This book was completely underwhelming for me. My mother loves James Patterson and he is such a well known author that I expected much more from him. The writing is very simplistic to me. nothing creative or figurative about it. Just plain and boring. The storyline had the potential to be so interesting, but in the end I was just disappointed. Our main character, Tandy was just emotional and dry. She was not relatable whatsoever.
     I additionally disliked how Tandy address the reader. It is like those cheesy college essays that say, "Dear College Admissions Office..." No honey! I am sorry but I hate that. This book was so predictable and honestly not worth my time. I did finish it even though I knew the ending was going to be a let down and I do not understand how there are four books in this series. I thought this book was going to have a Pretty Little Liars type vibe but I was just let down. 3 out of 5 stars.
Have you read any James Patterson books? Let me know down int he comments below!
