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.

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.

Don't be put off by the initial male narrative

The initial male voice along with over the top dramatic music almost made me ditch this one. Glad I stayed with it though, the music is only for a couple of moments during the introduction and while I still really couldn't take to the male narrator he doesn't play a massive part and the female one is excellent. The story itself is good, although I guessed the twist it didn't ruin it for me. Overall I would recommend.

Excellent!

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.

Good but a little long<br />

Good story but was a bit longer and drawn out than was necessary. Enjoyed it though.

Slow at first but then had me gripped

Little slow and jumpy at start but once characters are set and founded it becomes quite a gripping book. Another success from my favourite author and his co-writers.

Loved it

Where does Murder House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved this book and couldn't wait to hear the next installment. I found it totally absorbing and loved the story line. James Patterson at his best for me.

Great listen.

Narration was great. Story was interesting and some good twists. But some might call it predictable.

I was so excited to finally listen to this!

This story will keep you guessing. Just when you think you have it figured out-another twist! Great listen for a road trip, a lazy weekend or doing work around the house. Enjoy! We did!!!!

Patterson once again spins intriguing story

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.

Gripping!

This kept me on the edge of my seat all the way through. This book kept me guessing from start to finish and I couldn't put it down. Narration was really well done as well.

Just Keep Guessing!!

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!

well written but predictable

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.
