" . . . Beach Road is his wildest and most thrillingly unpredictable novel ever."

I'd give it a 2.5. I did zip through it and was constantly being surprised but sometimes these kinds of books reach the point for me where I'm just thinking "Really? Everything that can go wrong is going wrong?" ( )

I picked up the audio CD for a long road trip. This was my first James Patterson novel, and he writes an okay lawyer yarn that I found diverting enough--up until the ending, which has an impossible twist piled on top of a highly improbable twist (or was it the other way around? it doesn't matter). What a piece of junk. ( )

Not a very good book, even when read as just a beach read. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446619140, Mass Market Paperback)

Montauk lawyer Tom Dunleavy's client list is woefully small - occasional real estate closings barely keep him in paper clips. When he is hired to defend a local man accused in a triple murder that has the East Hampton world in an uproar, he knows that he has found the case of his lifetime.
The crime turns the glittering playground for the super-rich into a blazing inferno. Dunleavy's client is a local hero, but Dunleavy knows the case rests atop a volcano of money, deception, and forbidden desires. His client is the perfect fall guy - unless he can find the key that unlocks the secret rooms of the gilt-shrouded set.
When Dunleavy is joined by his former flame, the savvy and well-connected attorney, Kate Costello, he believes he has a chance. But payback is a bitch - especially from the rich. The violent retaliations of billionaires threatened by his investigation exceed anything Dunleavy has ever seen. With the entire nation's eyes on him in a new Trial of the Century, Dunleavy orchestrates a series of revelations that lead to a stunning outcome - only to find afterward that the truth is wilder than anything he ever imagined.
