The Murder House by James Patterson and David Ellis 

page 57 the murder

No.7 Ocean Drive is s 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 rumoured to be cursed, it is 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 the lush and wealthy surroundings to be a hotbed of grisly depravity. But when a Hollywood and 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 secrets as the Murder House itself, Jenna quickly realises that the Mansion’s history is much darker than even the town’s most salacious gossips could have imagined.
