Tandy Angel isn’t a normal girl, and she knows it. For one thing, her family is magnificently wealthy and lives in a massive apartment in the famous Dakota building in New York City. Her parents are the head of a prominent hedge fund and the CEO of a large pharmaceutical company. She has been told from a very young age that her detachment from any kind of emotion is a superb trait. In fact, her parents have tried to cultivate a lack of emotion in all four of their children in order to encourage perfection of the highest level. 

But now the four siblings are tested in a way they never imagined—their parents have been murdered, and the kids are the number one suspect. Tandy decides that she will have to solve the crime and clear their names, but digging deeper into her parent’s affairs is a dangerous—and revealing—game. Spurred by her findings, Tandy begins to remember flashes of past events that were long ago buried in her memory, and she’s suddenly unable to trust anyone, not even her siblings, to tell her the truth. She might not even be able to trust herself. Who knows what the Angel children are truly capable of?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Patterson and Paetro deliver a fast-paced mystery. The unconventional characters add tension and excitement to the story, as each child reacts to the murders in a different way…Recommended for middle-school fans of realistic fiction/action thrillers or lovers of books with strong female protagonists.” VOYA
“The complex, clever plot keeps the pages turning as it wends its way to a surprising resolution and several cliffhangers.” CommonSenseMedia.org
“Tandy’s determined to find the killer and discovers a few things about herself along the way. The story is narrated by Tandy in short chapters written in a confessional tone; they move the plot along, but are light on true crime investigation.” School Library Journal
“Fans of Patterson’s fast-paced style and surprising plot twists will embrace the beginning of another series.” Kirkus Reviews
“Galvin makes Tandy sound youthful, angry, and strangely unemotional about losing her parent…She also speaks in a believable New York accent for detectives as she keeps the short chapters humming along in this fast-paced story.” Booklist, audio review
