Booklist Review

In this sequel to Confessions of a Murder Suspect (2012), the wealthy Angel children are sent to Paris in the wake of their parents' murders. Sixteen-year-old Tandoori struggles to make sense of what has happened to her and her brothers amid broad hints of continuing danger ranging from glimpses of mysterious black sedans to having their mansion torched. There are also family revelations both sordid and startling. Meanwhile, her twin brother plunges into a worrisome round of drug- and alcohol-fueled partying even as an opening gig for Adele gives his musical career a huge boost. There's an initially happy return to New York that touches off a devastating betrayal and a murder attempt, leaving a major character dead. The plot, moving in fits and starts, is cut up into tiny chapters interrupted at arbitrary points and with frequent pauses for Tandy's confessions (most of which are e-mails that she writes and then deletes). The book is much shorter than it seems at first glance and zips along nearly as fast as pages can be flipped. Patterson fans and tabloid newspaper readers alike will enjoy the mix of glamour, decadence, and treachery.--Peters, John Copyright 2010 Booklist
