Tandy Angel isn't a normal girl, and she knows it. For one thing, her family is magnificently wealthy and lives in a massive apartment in the famous Dakota building in New York City. Her parents are the head of a prominent hedge fund and the CEO of a large pharmaceutical company. She has been told from a very young age that her detachment from any kind of emotion is a superb trait. In fact, her parents have tried to cultivate a lack of emotion in all four of their children in order to encourage perfection of the highest level. But now the four siblings are tested in a way they never imagined—their parents have been murdered, and the kids are the number one suspect. Tandy decides that she'll have to solve the crime and clear their names, but digging deeper into her parent's affairs is a dangerous—and revealing—game. Spurred by her findings, Tandy begins to remember flashes of past events that were long ago buried in her memory, and she's suddenly unable to trust anyone, not even her sublings to tell her the truth. She might not even be able to trust herself. Who knows what the Angel children are truly capable of?

    July 23, 2012
    Bestsellers Patterson and Paetro, the team behind the Women’s Murder Club series for adults, launch a YA mystery series with an implausible story with no moral center and multiple ludicrous plot twists. When the parents of four hypertalented children are murdered, emotionless 16-year-old Tandy; her musical prodigy twin, Harrison; angry 10-year-old Hugo; and 20-something NFL star Matthew become both suspects and detectives. Their abusive, manipulative parents are hardly sympathetic victims (they feed their children experimental pharmaceutical drugs and dole out draconian punishments), but the locked door to their New York City penthouse suggests that only the children—or their mother’s live-in personal assistant—could be the killers. The intriguing setup loses cohesion amid bumbling cops (key scenes revolve around their inability to find evidence right in front of them), preposterous twists, inexplicable motivations (including characters who keep secrets for their own sake), and a final revelation that cements the police officers’ incompetence. For writers with their crime-writing experience, Patterson and Paetro show little interest in common sense, motivation, or believable storytelling. Ages 12–up. Agent: Robert Barnett, Williams & Connolly.

  • AudioFile Magazine Tandy Angel and her three brothers are unnaturally gifted--they're also the prime suspects when their parents are found dead in their penthouse. Emma Galvin narrates in a rapid, even voice that accentuates Tandy's intelligence, focus, and flat affect. Galvin softens her tone in periodic confessionals in which Tandy addresses the listener, relating troubling gaps in her own memory as well as the secrets behind her family's success. Affairs, shady business dealings, and hidden motives emerge as Tandy investigates her parents' murder, reconstructs her fractured past, and begins to reconnect to emotions she'd thought she'd lost forever. The combination of engaging narrator and fast-paced mystery will appeal to many listeners. A.F. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
