James Patterson’s Confessions Series

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

James Patterson and Maxine Paetro wrote these four Young Adult Mystery novels beginning with #1 New York Times Bestseller, Confessions of a Murder Suspect (2012), where we are introduced to the narrator, Tandy Angel. James Patterson’s Confessions series continues with The Private School Murders (2013), The Paris Mysteries (2014), and The Murder of an Angel (2015). This series is great for anyone that enjoys a good mystery/thriller. Teens and adults alike will appreciate the J.P. style of short fast-paced chapters.



About the Angels

Tandoori “Tandy” Angel is the strong and extremely intelligent sixteen-year-old daughter of the magnificently wealthy Malcolm and Maud Angel, Malcolm is the co-owner of Angel Pharmaceuticals. Tandy and her siblings are very different from most children their age… Almost, superhumanly different… Matthew, the oldest, is a super athlete, Harry, the fraternal twin of Tandy, is musically gifted and Hugo, the youngest, has incredible strength. Malcolm and Maud were perfectionists who wanted their children to be perfect…



Tandy Angel’s parents were murdered in their home. The doors to the New York penthouse were locked, the only other people in the home that night were Tandy, Harry, Hugo, and Maud’s personal assistant Samantha and all of them were asleep. There were no signs of forced entry. All of them are suspects and Tandy was the last one to see her parents alive…

1. Confessions of a Murder Suspect

James Patterson's Confessions Series - Confessions of a Murder Suspect


On the night Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered, Tandy Angel knows just three things: 1) She was the last person to see her parents alive. 2) The police have no suspects besides Tandy and her three siblings. 3) She can’t trust anyone-maybe not even herself.

As Tandy sets out to clear the family name, she begins to recall flashes of experiences long buried in her vulnerable psyche. These memories shed light on her family’s dark secrets, and digging deeper into her powerful parents’ affairs proves to be a disturbing and dangerous game. Who knows what any of the Angels are truly capable of?


2. The Private School Murders

James Patterson's Confessions Series-The Private School Murders
Wealthy young women are being murdered on Manhattan’s exclusive Upper West Side, and the police aren’t looking for answers in the right places. Enter Tandy Angel. The first case she cracked was the mystery of her parents’ deaths. Now, while she’s working to exonerate her brother of his glamorous girlfriend’s homicide, she’s driven to get involved in the West Side murder spree.
One of the recent victims was a student at Tandy’s own elite school. She has a hunch it may be the work of a serial killer, but the NYPD isn’t listening to her, and Tandy can’t ignore the disturbing fact that she perfectly fits the profile of the killer’s targets. Can she untangle the mysteries in time? Or will she be the next victim?


3. The Paris Mysteries

James Patterson's Confessions Series-The Paris Mysteries

After investigating multiple homicides and her family’s decades-old skeletons in the closet, Tandy Angel is finally reunited with her lost love in Paris. But as he grows increasingly distant, Tandy is confronted with disturbing questions about him, as well as what really happened to her long-dead sister.

With no way to tell anymore who in her life she can trust, how will Tandy ever get to the bottom of the countless secrets her parents kept from her?



4. The Murder of an Angel

James Patterson's Confessions Series- The Murder of an Angel


Tandy Angel is losing her mind-or so she thinks. Even as she’s forced to fight for the family company, she’s imagining new dangers in every shadow.

And as her detective prowess is called into question and her paranoia builds, she has to face the very real possibility that the stalker she’s convinced will take her life could be all in her head or the very real danger that finally brings her down.

    Personally I had never heard of James Patterson and honestly cant remember how I got to your site but when here and enough caught my eye.

    I knew pretty quick that this wasnt my kind of reading.  Im more of a Stephen King fan.  However I thought about my 18 year old niece whose greatest passion is reading.

    I sent her a text and asked her if she knows about James Patterson.  Well apparently it was important enough for her to call me.  She told me that this confession series was supposed to be great.  So now she has the link to your website.

    Thank you for creating an article that wasnt even my subject but caught my eye.

    • Tracy

      Hi Dale. I’m sure glad that you did stumble upon my site. I am also a huge Stephen King fan. I’m sure that your niece would enjoy the series and I appreciate you passing along the link. : ) Thank you for taking a look. Have yourself a fantastic weekend.
