ARE YOU LISTENING? THE MURDER HOUSE: A REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S" 
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY" 
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S 
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....
*******************************************
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE MURDER HOUSE
BY JAMES PATTERSON
AND DAVID ELLIS
Read by Therese Plummer and Jay Snyder

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
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 THOUGHTS/REVIEW:
THE MURDER HOUSE is another joint effort of James Patterson and David Ellis that pays off. This is not part of a series but rather a single thriller to grab your attention and not let you go. I think the description even scared me a bit but I found it to be a good old time spooky story and enjoyed it. The characters were well written and filled out nicely. The twists and turns kept me guessing and changing my mind on what was what and who was who. I think the readers of this audio book added to filling out the genre of this somewhat melodramatic, but captivating, mystery. A little bit of gore but, hey, it is near Halloween so why not? A good time page turner of the old fashioned kind...just my style!

The Murder House sounds like an action pack adventure! I do like the setting (on a beach with an ocean view). Thank you for the chance to win.

I just saw a commercial on tv for this book! And I thought to myself, he really must be one of the highest earning authors to have money for that! Plus, he gives back like crazy to bookstores.

This sounds so exciting. I can't wait to read/listen to it. All sorts of odd things seem to happen in the Hamptons in real life and in books. What an exciting place. I'd love to go there.
