Confessions: The Private School Murders by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro Review

Yay! I'm back. It's been a long long time since I've been here.

"Tandy Angel may have played the hero when she solved the case of her magnificently wealthy parents' mysterious deaths, but she isn't done yet. Her brother Matthew stands trial for homicide, young girls are found murdered all around New York's Upper West side, and Tandy is determined to use her piercing intellect to get to the bottom of both cases. But the biggest mystery of all may be what actually happened to James Rampling, the handsome son of a family enemy, whom Tandy fell in love and ran away with--though most of her memories of the affair are disturbingly absent...

The confessions keep coming as Tandy delves even deeper into her own tumultuous history and the skeletons in the Angel family closet."

Confessions: The Private School Murders reveal the darker secrets of the Angel family along with the Rampling's skeletons. (What? The Rampling family has skeletons!)
There's a lot of cases on Tandy Angel's shoulders. For example, there's the my-brother-is-going-to-get-killed-in-court problem and the why-are-these-girls-getting-killed mystery. But that's not all. And it's going to be a hell of a ride for Tandy Angel and her brothers.

The Private School Murders kept me on the edge of my seat. I kept on thinking, kept on wondering, and kept on asking myself questions. All these questions was driving me nuts! It seems to me that the questions keep on coming, but the answers keep on fading and disappearing. There is just so much going on in this book. Murders. Death. Accusations. Brainwashing. And on and on and on. It's worse than the Johnson family.

The plot is insane. If you thought Confessions of a Murder Suspect was nuts, then The Private School Murders belongs to the insanity ward. And I should mention that plot is amazing. I'm so surprised by how Tandy doesn't get cases mix up. Especially with the snakes. (Oh! There's snakes? Yep.)

I like Tandy not being on drugs. She seems more empathetic to other people and kinder. She has more emotions, like a pregnant lady. Every confession chapter reveals a bit more of Tandy's personality. And I love how the author(s) do(es) it.

What about James Rampling? Oh, what about him? He's interesting, but most of what we'll learn from him is through Tandy's memories.

Surprisingly, The Private School Murders has a somewhat sweet and happy ending, thankfully. But I'm sorry if I gave an important spoiler.

Rating: Five out of Five
