Detective Jenna Murphy comes to the Hamptons to solve a murder -- but what she finds is more deadly than she could ever imagine.
Trying to escape her troubled past and rehabilitate a career on the rocks, former New York City cop Jenna Murphy hardly expects her lush and wealthy surroundings to be a hotbed of grisly depravity. But when a Hollywood power broker and his mistress are found dead in the abandoned Murder House, the gruesome crime scene rivals anything Jenna experienced in Manhattan. And what at first seems like an open and shut case turns out to have as many shocking secrets as the Murder House itself, as Jenna quickly realizes that the mansion's history is much darker than even the town's most salacious gossips could have imagined.
As more bodies surface, and the secret that Jenna has tried desperately to escape closes in on her, she must risk her own life to expose the truth-before the Murder House claims another victim. Full of the twists and turns that have made James Patterson the world's #1 bestselling writer, The Murder House is a chilling, page-turning story of murder, money, and revenge.
Good but predictable
Book started slow, then the characters started to form. It was easy to see who the murderer was pretty early - but you were still interested in the outcome.
So so so good. Minus the ending. It’s like the book was too long and you ran out of ideas so you just threw a ending in there out of nowhere and it didn’t even go with the story like plot. Plot twist yes but it’s as if you ran out of ideas and just said yeah he did it the end.
This is my favorite James Patterson book! There are so many ironies in it that I could not place the book down. Predicted who the serial killer was but I was wrong towards the end. Hopefully, there will be another mysterious book out soon. Hats off to James Patterson and David Ellis!
