It has an oceanfront view, a private beach - and a deadly secret that won't stay buried. Number Seven Ocean Drive is a gorgeous, multimillion-dollar beachfront estate in the Hamptons, where money and privilege know no bounds. But its beautiful, gothic exterior hides a horrific past: It was the scene of a series of depraved killings that have never been solved. Neglected, empty, and rumored to be cursed, it's known as the Murder House, and locals keep their distance. Detective Jenna Murphy used to consider herself a local, but she hasn't been back since she was a girl. Trying to escape her troubled past and rehabilitate a career on the rocks, the former New York City cop 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 number-one best-selling writer, The Murder House is a chilling story of murder, money, and revenge.
Great Horror for October!
Wow! I am very impressed by the mystery shrouding the characters of this book until the end! Kept me on my toes. The kind of book to go through it in one day!
Great mystery from beginning to the end! Listened to it twice!! Great narrators!
Definitly good but a LITTLE predictable
While I didn't catch EVERYTHING right away, the "hints" the author(s) make toward the identity of the killer are too obvious. And, knowing the answer, it made me a little frustrated with the naivety of the lead character. But, overall, I really enjoyed this! And the narration is done VERY well. Highly recommend.
