It's Thursday night, Memorial Day weekend, fifteen minutes from the start of the first party in what promises to be another glorious season in the Hamptons. On the night in question, Peter had been hired to work as a valet at a huge Memorial Day bash on the Long Island estate of the extremely wealthy and influential Barry Neubauer and family. The backlash creates a determination to punish evil and the investigation continues as the balance swings back and forth between the bad guys and the good guys. The Beach House is a breathtaking legal thriller of deceit and revenge-with a finale so shocking, it could only have come from the mind of James Patterson.

Jack has no other option than to build up a team of people who agree with him and try to solve the crime. His brother would never have committed suicide, particularly since the body looks like Peter was beaten to death. Motivated by a hundred forms of grief, Jack rallies his hometown friends to help him find the truth of Peter's death-no matter how rich or corrupt the people who stand in their way.

It becomes a battle between the townies and the rich summer resident who appears to be implicated in the death.

Patterson is not necessarily one of my favorite authors, but I decided to give one of his books a go again, as I had nothing else to read in the house. However, I consider popular fiction especially the current one, really thought-provoking; it is not just a story of revenge of the hero for his brother’s death, rather, the author painstakingly narrates the decay in the society, child abuse, pornography, drug abuse, the illicit relationship between the authorities (including judiciary and police) and the bourgeoisie. it was confusing and the dark subject matter that i had no idea was even involved, was kinda just thrown in your face like its a joke.By the end, fans may start to miss Alex Cross, whose presence could have given this flyaway story some weight. Jack tries to uncover what really happened on the beach that night, only to confront a wall of silence; a barricade of shadowy people who protect the privileges of the multi-billionaire summer residents. Effectively moving and comedic at the same time, Patterson's main character gives The Beach House a much more invigorating tale. Now I appreciate that for those of you who have stayed with me this far, there's nothing too surprising about this romantic development.

He is the author of some of the most popular series of the past two decades - the Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club, Detective Michael Bennett and Private novels - and he has written many other number one bestsellers including romance novels and stand-alone thrillers. The plot keeps your interest right from the beginning and from that moment the book is a true page burner. I did not really c are to read to the end because the story never felt scary or creepy or like much of anything.

One brother goes balls out to find justice for his brother against the rich and famous and a corrupt police force and I bounced in my chair and cheered him on. Jack’s mission is to right his brother’s name and legacy, get behind the police coverups, and to breakdown the barriers that millionaires and celebs seem to have in this town. Indeed, the novel does double duty as a survival manual, packed full of good advice—for instance, try not to get wounded, for “injury turns you from a giver to a taker. Motivated by a hundred forms of grief, Jack rallies his hometown friends to help him find the truth of Peter’s death – no matter how rich or corrupt the people who stand in their way. They feel genuine and realistic, and you almost instantly fear like the similar kind of injustice can happen to you.
