But the police say otherwise. As Jack tries to uncover details of his brother's last night, he confronts a maddening barricade of lawyers, police, and paid protectors who separate the wealthy summer residents from local workers like Peter. 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.
Jack's relentless crusade puts him into a head-on collision with one of the most powerful and ruthless men in New York, a man who wipes out resistance with a snap of his fingers. As it unfolds that his brother was involved with some of the richest women and men in America - in ways Jack never imagined - his dream of justice fades. Only if he can somehow beat the rich at their own game will he be able to avenge his brother.

Love reading, hard to find the time! audible member since 2006
I love James Patterson and "The Beach House" did not disappoint. I actually looked forward to my bus ride into work so that I could listen to it. I couldn't put it down, I actually wore my iPod to bed several times so I could listen. Having spent a little time in the Hamptons, Patterson's images just jumped out at me. I'm going to load another of his books right now!
I really enjoyed this story. It held my attention, is well told and kept me on the edge of my seat. I listened to it from start to finish. I highly recommend it!
Normaly a bad book just puts me to sleep, this one just makes me sick.
The main character is at both so bubbly and whining that I would find it difficult to reccomend to my dentist as a payback for the drilling on my last visit.
Forget about this book, forget you ever thought about this book. Go out and get a good root canal, you'll be better off.
I won't give it away - but I will say that I was disappointed with the ending. The author could have been so much more creative. I think he endorsed the vigilante style a bit too much this way.
