Murder of an Angel (Confessions #4) by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

Book Description:

Published: October 26, 2015

In the dramatic conclusion of the bestselling Confessions series, Tandy Angel’s next murder case could be her own!

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.

Review –
I had looked forward to this book for a long time and I’m sad to say it was very disappointing.
I think the author, James Patterson, was too busy with other projects to give this concluding installment of the Confessions series his full attention and do it justice.
We knew the identity of the “bad guy” from the get go and their was no mystery or depth to the characters this time. Instead, everything seemed rushed and the total outcome was underwhelming.
I’m glad I read it but I hate that there are still questions without answers and that it ended with a semi cliff-hanger (not really) but there are things said that could have led to another installment.
Maybe Maxine Paetro  should have done the majority of the writing  and gone on to write #5 and give it a proper conclusion.
What about it, Ms. Paetro?

There are a couple of scenes in here that could be triggers for some abuse survivors. I did my best to be considerate of the sensitive readers while remaining true to the authenticity of the scenes.

Meanwhile, Father Abraham is still on the loose with a score to settle with them all and no one is safe from his wrath.

Will love conquer all in this story? Can the heart really be used to recondition the brain? Find out what happens in this Dark Conclusion.

Review –

I think this installment of the Mercy series was rushed to a conclusion. Sade was a totally off the wall sadist and didn’t really seem to want to change and he  hurt and nearly killed Mercy in a very horrific and torturous way and in a very sexually explicit manner.

Father Abraham was dealt with much faster than I had expected but in a very gruesome way that I did not expect. A little bit of cruelty is okay but this was over the top.

Then all of a sudden Sade is a changed man and there is a HEA and a baby to boot.

Just a bit rushed for me.  Could have used another installment to tie loose ends up better. But that’s just me.
