Book Review

by James Patterson, Maxine Paetro

Genre: Young Adult, Mystery

RT Rating

Patterson’s latest is downright weird. Fans of his other work (YA or otherwise), like this reviewer, are better off skipping this one. There’s a lack of character development, a clichéd plot and unwieldy narration.

When the wealthy and famous Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered inside their locked apartment, the police are flummoxed. The only plausible suspects were those inside when the murders occurred, right? Was it analytical and unemotional teen detective Tandy Angel? Or her artistically brilliant and overly emotional twin Harrison? Or perhaps their super-strong, quick-tempered younger brother, Hugo? Or older brother Matthew Angel, a famous athlete with a grudge? Everyone has a motive. Everyone had opportunity. And there’s no evidence. (LITTLE, BROWN, Sep., 344 pp., $19.99, ISBN: 9780316206983, HC, 12 & Up)
