Detective Jenna Murphy comes to the Hamptons to solve a murder - but what she finds is more deadly than she could ever imagine.
No. 7 Ocean Drive is a gorgeous, multi-million-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 isa chilling story of murder, money, and revenge.

Furthermore, police and trial procedural seems to be nonexistent. And can I just say, this might have been the STUPIDEST police department in the history of all police departments, throughout the entire world? "Some random person says I should arrest you for murdering 8 people? Well, alrighty then. Let me get a warrant."
Sorry. It doesn't work that way.
Lastly, this book is FAR too long, and even worse, it's predictable. By around the 40% mark, I'd figured it out. Blah. I've read 52 books so far this year (it's 4/22), and this one took me a full week to finish. That should tell you something. The author was throwing red herrings all over the place, introducing characters which simply didn't need to be introduced, and writing story lines which added quantity, but certainly not quality.
This novel is definitely not a winner, and I'm sorry to say, I can't knowingly recommend this book to anyone. 1.5 stars rounded to 2.
I realize that that is more of a critique of the author's business model than it is of this book, but I think people should be aware that this is not really a Patterson book. If you can get it really cheap then go ahead and read it. Do not spend more than a couple bucks on it.

I love most books written by James Patterson, so if you are a fan then it's a good enough read, just don't expect too much.
