If you're tired of romance, dystopia and supernatural creatures, pick up a copy of James Patterson's Confessions of a Murder Suspect.
Patterson, who has been compared to a watered down Stephen King, has taken a break from his Alex Cross death threats and written a story to appeal to slightly younger readers.
The Good reads synopsis of Confessions of a Murder Suspect reads: On the night Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered, Tandy Angel knows just three things: 1) She was the last person to see her parents alive. 2) The police have no suspects besides Tandy and her three siblings. 3) She can't trust anyone—maybe not even herself. Having grown up under Malcolm and Maud's intense perfectionist demands, no child comes away undamaged. Tandy decides that she will have to clear the family name, but digging deeper into her powerful parents' affairs is a dangerous-and revealing-game. Who knows what the Angels are truly capable of?
The story follows the first person view of Tandy Angel, who wakes in the middle of the night to the police pounding on the front door of their penthouse apartment. Upon meeting the police, Tandy realizes her parents have been murdered.
The catch? The door was locked and no one else had entered or left the apartment; meaning it has to be one of them.
