In the sequel to the #1 New York Times bestseller Confessions of a Murder Suspect, James Patterson keeps the confessions coming breathlessly as Tandy Angel delves deeper into her own tumultuous history-and proves that she can rise above the sordid Angel legacy.
Wealthy young women are being murdered on Manhattan’s exclusive Upper West Side, and the police aren’t looking for answers in the right places. Enter Tandy Angel. The first case she cracked was the mystery of her parents’ deaths. Now, while she’s working to exonerate her brother of his glamorous girlfriend’s homicide, she’s driven to get involved in the West Side murder spree.
One of the recent victims was a student at Tandy’s own elite school. She has a hunch it may be the work of a serial killer, but the NYPD isn’t listening to her…and Tandy can’t ignore the disturbing fact that she perfectly fits the profile of the killer’s targets. Can she untangle the mysteries in time? Or will she be the next victim?
This is the second book in the Confessions series. It’s a new YA series by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. If you’re wanting to read this book and haven’t read the first book, Confessions of a Murder Suspect first. With this series so far, you need to read them in order. If you picked up the second one first, you may be ok, but you really need to read the first one first to get a feel for the series. This book picks up where the first one left off. There is a second plot in this book, away from the original one in the first book, but they both run throughout the book.
That being said, I really liked where this book went. I wasn’t sure how Patterson and Paetro would push the first book further, with most of the mystery being solved. I am really glad they added in a second plot twist to keep things moving. The pace of these books is rapid. They are quick, easy reads that you won’t want to put down.
The characters that I fell in love with in the first book are back for more action. And a few new ones are added to the mix. These are definitely characters that you will remember once you put this book down.
The third book in this series is out, however I do not have a copy yet. I do hope to get my hands on it soon. This is my new favorite series and one that I hope to stay on top of.
I give Confessions The Private School Murders 5 out of 5 bookmarks.
