    1. Clearly it must be something on my end, as most people have raved about this book, but it was just ok for me. I typically pick up a JP every now and again as a "palate cleanser"; I use these when I'm in a reading slump and need something fast to get my mojo back and feel accomplished again because "Yay! I finished a whole book at lightning speed and now I can pick up my other books again!". Don't get me wrong; I'm honestly not hating on JP; sure he puts out 536 books per year and they are qualit [...]

    2. A James Patterson stand alone. In fact, one of his better stand-alone novels I've read in a long time. Noah Walker lives in the Hampton area .He works both as carpenter and general handy man for the elite who call this area their summer home. Noah is arrested for a double-murder, and the evidence seems clear. Maybe too much so. Detective Jenna Murphy questions the suspiciously convenient case against Noah. Now, as more homicides both old and new come to light, Jenna is determined to find the kil [...]

    3. 5 magnificent fan "freaking" tastic stars! James Patterson knows his audience. I was hooked from the first page.Everything about this thriller intrigued me. The title, the cover, the summary Every single thing. I was stumped until the very end I thought for a tiny second I had it figured out but then double guessed myself and blew it off, turns out my prediction was right. Read this book, it's a page turner. I couldn't put it down. Every chapter had something new that added to the mystery of thi [...]

    4. What a Remarkable ThrillerThe story held my attention from the beginning page until the final one. Throughout the story, I was constantly trying to guess who was the killer. The authors were skilled writers and I could not guess—until the final pages of the book. The story was well-crafted and I recommended it.

    5. Detective Jenna Murphy hadn't been back to the Hamptons since she was a small child - she had no idea why her family hadn't returned when they used to come for the summer every year. But since the problems she'd encountered in the NYPD, her Uncle Lang, who was Chief of Police in the Hamptons, offered her a position with his force. When a young couple was brutally murdered in the old abandoned Murder House, so named because of its reputation, Jenna found herself becoming deeply involved in the in [...]

    6. 7 Ocean Drive also known as The Murder House, gives Detective Jenna Murphy the creeps. She used to play on the beaches right outside this house when she was little. Since she has been away from Southhampton Township for so long, she can't recall why. When two dead bodies are found in the house, Detective Murphy is on the case to find the killer. The number one suspect, Noah Walker has strong ties to the house and is known for his past crimes. The story behind the house is a good setting for any [...]

    7. James Patterson and David Ellis team up to bring readers another great thriller worthy of investment for all those curious enough to tackle this mystery. Jenna Murphy seeks the quiet life. Hampered with a grey cloud during her time with the NYPD, she flees to rural New York and joins the Southhampton Town Police Department, where her uncle, Langdon James, is Chief. When a couple is found slain inside a notorious house, all eyes turn to a potential jilted ex-boyfriend, Noah Walker. Choosing ease [...]

    8. Mindless entertainment. Like reading a made-for-TV-drama. Just so predictable and bland.

    9. Its been years since I've read a Patterson book. For one, I couldn't keep up with an author who came out with 10 books a year! He's actually not the best writer considering that he's sold millions upon millions of books. But with that said, I did like this one. It grabbed me right away, kept wavering on who the killer was (although, I did actually figure out one piece of the puzzle rather quickly), and it was a fast read that I could devour on my day off.

    10. The Murder HouseThis was the best book I've read by James Patterson in a very very long time. I was pleasantly surprised and I hope his novels continue to be this good from now on. I was ready to give up reading his books but I'm happy I decided to try this one. Great writing and a wonderful mystery.

    11. For those who enjoy a house of blood soaked horror.This is a most enjoyable read, maybe on a stretch of beach with some old rambling cottages behind you.

    12. First, let me get the "stuff" I wasn't crazy about out of the way. I'm not fond of first-person narratives, and I especially dislike present-tense writing. And while the ending wraps everything up in a neat and tidy fashion, it goes against the grain of human emotion; nobody I know is able forgive and forget that fast.Other than that, this one's a killer - starting with a first chapter that made me say "Wow! out loud - really! It's so good, in fact, that I was almost happy when we weren't able t [...]

    13. This stand alone novel keeps the reader in suspense from start to the finish! Very enjoyable and entertaining.

    14. Actual rating: 1.5This review will be short, because I don't care to remember much about this reading experience.My main complaints:Predictable•I read a few reviews where readers stated they were stumped about who the killer(s) was until the very end. I solved it less than halfway through. That ruined it for me. It removed any sort of surprise or excitement. To elaborate (view spoiler)[There were only a few male suspects to begin with, anyways: Isaacs, Noah, and Aiden. They were each accused q [...]

    15. 4,5*A parceria com David Ellis veio trazer um outro tipo de leitura aos já milhões de leitores de James Patterson. Mais mistério, mais sangue, não esquecendo a investigação policial, característica dos romances do autor norte-americano. Se já tinha ficado fã do livro Invisível, da dupla, este consolidou o que sentia pela escrita a duas mãos.Com capítulos curtos, habituais em Patterson, de leitura rápida, excelente para levar nas férias (como fiz), A Casa da Morte é um thriller que [...]

    17. James Patterson did it again! He kept me guessing until the end. If you like reading/listening to JP's books, then I highly recommend this one too. Enjoy the ride!

    18. I read this book in two sittings, which would have been one if sleep hadn't intervened! Grisly murders by a psychopath(s), an unsolved mystery, a detective willing to lose everything to find the truth, a love story thrown in - all parts of this new book by James Patterson. It was fun to work the clues and find the answers along with the characters. Even though I had figured it out, the ending was full of extras. If you love James Patterson or murder mysteries, you will love this!

    19. So boring. The main character was a basket case and incredibly annoying. This felt way too over the top, and in a way, the 'Murder House' was a behind the scenes plot instead of the main synopsis. So disappointing.

    20. I normally love James Patterson books, and can accept a healthy amount of suspension of disbelief. But this book is terrible. My primary issue is with the main character - a police detective who keeps talking about how good she is at her job but apparently has no instinct, no control over her emotions, and has a habit of breaking into places and physically attacking the people she suspects rather than actually asking them any questions. The most preposterous aspect involves a spoiler so don't co [...]

    21. I found the style of writing quite simplistic and it detracted quite a lot from the overall effect this book had on me as a reader. Despite including clues and snippets of evidence with each section, the writing often spelt everything out until it was impossible to ignore any hints in the text. Stuff like the name Holden, repeatedly telling the reader that he CHOSE that name (like, we get it's not his real name) or that she got the scar on her hand or so her mother says (right, so she didn't get [...]

    22. Wow I really expected so much more from this book. Where do I start? I don't want to give anything away, but I'm just really surprised at some of the unrealistic parts of this book. I mean really You have a home that has had many disturbing murders and things happen in it that it is actually dubbed The Murder House and yet am I really to believe the police never go down to check the basement?!? First thing that struck me as crazy Then Jenna's past is so vague, i kept believing somehow there was [...]

    23. as always with a james patterson book you never know what's gonna happen next and you can never guess right on whodunit, I think I pegged everyone as the murderer but not the actual person, they was probably the one that I never thought of, which is the whole point of a James patterson whodunit always keeping you guessing and never letting on.well I can't wait for the next book and to never being able to guess right but I wouldn't want it any other way.

    24. Okay het heeft wat tijd gekost, maar het boek is uit. Het ligt aan onze verbouwingen en niet aan het boek want dit is schitterend. Een moordenaar die je totaal niet verwacht en/of vermoed. Dit moet je gelezen hebben. Een moordenaarsfamilie die via de genen het moorden doorgeeft aan hun nazaten!

    25. Audiobook This was an excellent audiobook. I listened to the cd version, as soon as one cd ended, I had to quickly put on the next one. Murder House is very quick paced and exciting; I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. I'd probably have given it 5 stars, but I thought the female protagonist was rather unlikeable. I secretly wished she would be put out of her misery. lol

    26. Another REALLY good book! I kept thinking I had it figured out "who dun it" but didn't figure it out until the last few chapters along with the character in the book! I really like Patterson and this was another good one of his!

    27. Wow what a story! Loved it! I didn't want to put it down I even took it to work with me and read on my lunches and breaks

    28. Perhaps not the best selection for my 1st JP read?The main positives are:It’s a quick paced telling and some of the chapters are only 1.5 pages long and often times leave you hanging encouraging you to read on. It was definitely an exciting and entertaining read that kept me guessing for a good portion—though I did guess the twists and the whodunit part well before they were revealed. Now for my criticisms:Aside from the fact that I threatened to not finish the book numerous times—I will e [...]

    29. Release Date:April 5, 2016 Genre:Mystery and ThrillerJames Patterson is the KING of murder mysteries and thrillers. Every time I pick up one of his books I know that I am going to be put on a mind blowing journey from page one all the way through to the end. This is no different with Murder House and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. The story follows officer Jenna Murphy and her hunt for a serial killer who is literally impaling his victims. Unfortunately for Jenna though, this hunt is [...]
