James Patterson
Little, Brown and Company

Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in legendary East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him in paper clips. His principal clients make a living serving the rich. The billionaires and mega-celebrities swarming the beaches already have lawyers on their payroll.
Then a friend of Tom's is arrested for a triple murder near a movie star's mansion. Tom knows in his gut that Dante Halleyville is innocent. Dante asks him to represent him in what could be the Trial of the Century.

Tom recruits Manhattan superlawyer Kate Costello to help. She's a tough hire, because Kate is his ex-girlfriend-but she agrees. In their search to find who really executed three locals, Tom orchestrates a series of revelations to expose the killer-and what emerges is staggering.

The final scenes of Beach Road unveil a truth that will leave readers gasping in shock.

I love this story!!! It was so much fun! Kate Castillo is a fantastic here heroin. Together she and Tom make a great team.

A lot of people marked this book down but I have to say that I found it completely entertaining. I enjoyed the twists, turns and the mystery along the way. The setting was fabulous and the world building was fun. I never saw the ending coming!

As far as Literature goes this is a little more remedial than other books that I come across however I was completely engaged and entertained the entire time. I love Patterson books especially in the summer. They are always easy reads. They are amusing, interesting, and keep you thinking and wondering till the end.

I loved all the characters in this book. I connected with Kate the most. It’s always great to see a strong and intelligent heroin in the story. She stood on her own and I liked that.

Corruption, racism, elitism, murder and more.. This book had it all! Like I said it’s not a literary masterpiece, but you will have a great time reading it.

3 1/2 stars and pair it with an Upper Crust
