Publisher's Summary

Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in America's wealthiest resort town: legendary East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him in paper clips. His clients make a living serving the rich. The billionaires and celebrities swarming the beaches already have lawyers on their payroll.

Very Expensive
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.

Very Exclusive
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.

Very Explosive
The final scenes of this audiobook unveil a truth that will leave readers gasping in shock. Written with the precision that has made James Patterson "a master of his genre" (USA Today), Beach Road is his wildest, most thrilling novel ever.

    "Beach Road"

    Initially, I thought this book was not going to hold my interest especially since it covered sports. Boy was I wrong. This book was good. It kept me in suspense wondering just who is the killer! After many turns and twists, I'm finally learn the killer (which is a total surprise) and I am still held in suspense when the killer is apprehended and the brought to justice. How it's done and by whom is just great. The plot weaves in many characters, who all have a story to tell, and all of whom play an intricate part to play. I loved it--so much so that I listened to it again.

    "Don't waste your money!"

    Don't waste a credit on this book! The 'dramatized' reading is horrible. It sounds like a really bad radio drama from several years ago. It might have worked a little better for me with one talented reader as opposed to several untalented ones. It's a tired old story line with a really stupid twist at the end!

    "Shocker ending"

    Multiple readers didn't bother me, although I prefer just one.
    I'm not a huge James Patterson fan but this book was a good time passer on a 6 hour ride and the initial shock ending did leave my mouth hanging open for about 2 minutes.
    Not a great book but an okay read.

    "Dont Bother"

    I would not waste a credit on this, and the fact that I did forced me to listen to the end. Multiple readers make it confusing to listen to and the story is bland. Dont bother....

    "Beach Road"

    I agree with other reviewers that multiple readers didn't help this book. It was a little hard to follow. It was short so kept my interest and I liked the twist at the end.

    "Ho Hum..."

    Another "cookie cutter" book. When I first started listening to this book and realized that it was not just read to me but has been "dramatized" by different readers, I was put off. Actually it kind of worked for this book, however the content is very poorly written and so predictable that at best it was barely a mere 2 stars rating from me. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I somehow managed to finish listening.....

    I probably would not waste a book credit on this one......ho hum...

    "Great Listen"

    I really enjoyed this book. It kept me wanting to stay in the car. The first twist was surprising and interesting but the last one at the end simply was not understood. The multi-character narrative was a bit too much. I just didn't see the point of some of the characters and their narrations such as the brooklyn cop, Connie. Maybe I'm just missing something.

    "The Summer's Hottest Thriller!!!"

    When I first started reading this book, I realized right away it would be unlike any other I'd read. I've been a long-time fan of James Pattersons books and have become acustomed to a particular standard for the quality of work he puts out. Well this latest masterpiece is truly one to exceed all expectations! Without a doubt, James Patterson has managed to release achillingly superb thriller that has more twists and turns in it than any rollercoaster cold ever hope to have! You'll never see the ending coming; there's no way on earth unless you've already been informed by someone else! The characters are stunning and perform nothing short of an all-out miracle, each and every one of them!!!

    "Who? WOW!"

    Like others have said, I didn't see this ending coming. I thought I had the story all figured out! This is one you must listen too. The characters are great! This is well put together and well read. Another great Patterson book!
    Well worth it!
