Audio Book Summary

It has an ocean-front view, a private beach--and a deadly secret that won't stay buried.

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 #1 bestselling writer, THE MURDER HOUSE is a chilling, page-turning story of murder, money, and revenge.

    I travel an extensive amount for my job. Honestly, I was on the verge of going a little crazy during all the hours on the road; I mean, let’s face it, you can only listen to the same songs and talk on the phone so much! With Audio Books, I have a whole new world to look forward to during my drives! As an English major, reading aloud is something I am very particular about. I am so excited to report that my last audio book, “Murder House” by James Patterson has 2 different narrators, both of which were excellent! I recommended the app to my mother, who also drives extensively. Thank you Audio Books, you saved me! I would recommend this app to anybody who loves books and has time to listen to the book of your choice, as they have virtually everything, read to you! I love the book and the narrators! Great job!

    The book was better than average but not by much. It was interesting with a predictable twist at the end. I enjoyed it but not enough for a "re-read" sometime in the future.

    Murder House was long as all Patterson books are. In fact, it was too long because by the time I reached the end I had already figured out the twist. An interesting read with well developed characters but still too long and drawn out, I thought. I preferred the male narrator to the female. Also, I prefer that the narrator just read. Not try to speak as he or she thinks the character would. No dialects please. Still, the book was interesting but no raves from me.

    There were thrills and twists at every turn. Both of the narrators only enhanced the story. I highly recommend this book--it will keep you guessing.

    This book had me in suspense. One moment I had it figured out and then something else would happen and have me changing my mind. The only thing that I didn't like was the narrator's reading "I say" to the point that it irritated me.
