Publisher's Summary

No. 7 Ocean Drive is a multimillion-dollar beachfront house in the Hamptons, but its beautiful exterior hides a horrific past. This house was the setting for a series of depraved killings that have never been solved.

Neglected, empty and rumoured to be cursed, it's known as the Murder House, and locals keep their distance.

Detective Jenna Murphy has moved to the area to escape her troubled past and rehabilitate a career on the rocks. But when a Hollywood power broker and his mistress are found dead in the abandoned Murder House, Jenna becomes involved in a case that at first seems open and shut, but reveals more secrets than she could possibly imagine.

As more bodies surface and Jenna is drawn deeper into the dark history of No. 7, she must risk her own life to expose the truth - before the Murder House claims another victim.

    "Enjoyed it but probably wouldn't read again"

    Let me first say I enjoyed this book. I've read alot of Patterson's early work but got bored of the series, so when I saw he released a stand alone novel I was keen to give it a go. I listened until the end determined to know who did it. I found it predictable and saw the ending coming but still enjoyed seeing how it all was resolved. I found the main female character to be very frustrated and found myself talking out loud at times (lots of "no dont do that"!). At times I thought about giving up and finding a new book but I felt compelled to keep going just to see i'd guessed correctly (I did). I don't think I could listen again but overall a decent whodunnit story with enough twists and turns to keep you wondering and thinking.

    Fast read, and if you like mysteries like I do you'll like this. I did guess who done it fairly early on but it still kept me intrigued.

    I loved this book. I love the James Patterson books! This one had so many twists and turns and certainly kept me guessing! Not only did it keep me guessing but it kept me on the edge of my seat. Great narrator as well! Another good one from Mr. Patterson!

    Would you listen to Murder House again? Why?

    no, uhh I know who did it now...


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder and Therese Plummer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Really enjoyed the narration and would try a book based on their narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I hate courtroom dramas. I hate books where someone is falsely charged with a crime. They are just obvious time consumers and a lazy way to move the story along.This book had both. Fortunately, it also had a good story after these, then of course they had to throw it all in again. I made it through,tho. In the end it was worth the credit, but a bit of a disappointment.

    "James Patterson is getting trite"

    I've read a number of Patterson books, but if this is an example of his newest and latest style, he should hang up his pen and try something else. He puts out a lot of work in a year lately, usually co-written by other authors. I wonder who Patterson is trying to please, the co-writers or his banker. Make no mistake, the narrators have done a fine job, but their material is very poorly done. I look forward to more of their work, but I will certainly think twice before I buy another Patterson book.

    "Brilliant"
    What made the experience of listening to Murder House the most enjoyable?

    Brilliant book, James Patterson kept me guessing right to the end, I kept swapping around to who I thought did it and what the ending would be! I almost burnt the dinner because I wanted to listen to the end. I have to be honest I do fast forward the really gruesome bits but don't feel I miss out on the plot.


    Any additional comments?

    I used to read JP booked all time until Swimsuit which I found too gruesome it put me off reading any other of JP's books but now I have found the audio versions it is great you just ff any bits you don't want to listen to. Murder House exceeded my expectations.

    Would you listen to Murder House again? Why?

    Yes I would, and I probably will one day. Excellent story, wonderful narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder House?

    It is hard to point out just one.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder and Therese Plummer ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I never listened to any of Jay Snyder and Therese Plummer performance before, but I would really love to in the future. My favorite is Jay Snyder now. I love him so much I will listen to books I have never heard of just because he is reading them to me. Therese Plummer - I really like her narration as well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes! I finished it in two days.

    I always like James Patterson books and this is no different. From the beginning I was intrigued and following each of the characters. Twists in the plot were great and I was guessing until the end. Very well narrated, I like the male and female voices.

    Loved this story, loved the plot twists, thought I had nailed the outcome, then changed my mind, then changed it back again, then changed my mind....repeat to fade. The narration was simply amazing.....the emotional investment in the narrative shone through....well done!

    The book really annoyed me in the end, the so called amazing cop got everything wrong all the time, and was way off the mark. I was very much enjoying it until the last quarter or so, then it became dull and corny.
