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.

My only problem with any of the James Patterson books … My only problem with any of the James Patterson books are the price.They are very quick fast reads with short chapters. But I really have a problem with a digital book that is $15 and the hardcover that is less than $2 more. His Digital book prices are the reason I don’t buy them as often. I wonder if others feel the same.

THIS NEW NOVEL WILL HAVE NO PROBLEM SELLING This collaboration between award winning James Patterson and author David Ellis has produced interesting results. If you like the murder/mystery genre you won’t be disappointed with this new novel. The characters are well designed, dialog is witty & appropriate and the plot, while occasionally borderline “spooky,” works very well at holding the suspense and a readers interest. The collaboration seems to have brought some new original texture into Patterson’s successful writing style,…

A definite winner! This book was so suspenseful that I actually tore off a couple of fingernails. One of the best stand alone books so far! I did not guess the ending. I also didn’t get much housework done because I could not put the book down. Excellent writing style, good character development and fats paced just the way I like my books to be. The one complaint is that the price for an e-book of $15 is ridiculously high!!! I see no reason for that except greed on the part of somebody. I still gave it 5 stars…
