Very good read, as usual for James Patterson. ( )

I enjoy the author's short, action-packed chapters and adding first-person chapters by different characters in the book was refreshing was I got used to it. Like everyone else, I did not see the end coming nor the final outcome. A good, quick, enjoyable read. ( )

It was hard to put it down. I'll give it that much. But it was far from one of my favorite James Patterson books. Actually it was pretty obvious Patterson did not write this book himself. The twist got me, but overall it had a very amateurish feel to it. I wanted a quick, easy read and it did fulfill my wish. ( )

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.
