Confessions

Best-selling author James Patterson will end his sci-fi series Maximum Ride this August, but he has a new teen-oriented series that’s just getting started. Confessions of a Murder Suspect, co-written with Maxine Paetro, comes out Sept. 24 and will stick to the mystery-thriller genre that made him famous. It centers on Tandy Angel, who comes from a wealthy but seriously shady family. When her parents are murdered, she and her siblings are the only suspects – and to clear their names, Tandy must dig into her family’s dealings. She doesn’t like what she learns.
