Wealthy young women are being murdered, and the police aren't looking for answers in the right places. Enter Tandy Angel. Her first case was the mystery of her parents' deaths. Now she's working to exonerate her brother of his girlfriend's homicide. And danger just got closer.

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... and Tandy perfectly fits the profile of the killer's targets. Can she untangle the mysteries in time? Or will she be the next victim?

James Patterson keeps the confessions coming as Tandy delves deeper into her own tumultuous history and the skeletons in the Angel family closet.

James Patterson remains a pivotal figure in the young adult fiction genre. More known for his mystery novels over the past few years, Patterson has made a strong base in young adult fiction. With series like Maximum Ride and Daniel X, James Patterson seems to have the younger genre down pack. The new Confessions series, I believe is his most polished yet. With the storyline, great characters, and of course the vintage Patterson mystery, the first two books in the series are obvious bestsellers.
Now the second book, the Private School Murders, is a great sequel to Confessions of a Murder Suspect. Keeping with the fast paced style, the story becomes a mad dash from start to finish. Tandoori is back and her family is still messed up. While her brother lives in custody for supposed murder; mysterious murders are popping up around NYC and lets not forget the typical teenage lover affair. With the help of her friends and family, she hopes to solve all of the cases in time. Filled with tension on every page, this book turns out to be better than the first. Tandoori as a main character really becomes relatable and on a whole, the story just seems to flow just right from page to page.

*Side Note from Deitre

Although I try not to judge a book by it's cover, I must bring to light the fact that book 1, had an original cover that was very dramatic and gets the reader ready to dive into the book. Since the first publication, new cover styles have been created that just do not lend to the same effect. Be sure to let the name and writing alone, James Patterson, entice you to read this series.
