Publisher's Summary

James Patterson's strongest team since the Women's Murder Club are the first responders when their seafront town is targeted by vicious criminals.

The Inn at Gloucester stands alone on the rocky shoreline. Its seclusion suits former Boston police detective Bill Robinson, novice owner and innkeeper. As long as the dozen residents pay their rent, Robinson doesn't ask any questions. Neither does Sheriff Clayton Spears, who lives on the second floor. 

Then Mitchell Cline arrives, with a deadly new way of doing business. His crew of local killers break laws, deal drugs, and bring violence to the doors of the Inn. That's when Robinson realizes, with the help of journalist Susan Solie, that leaving the city is no escape from the reality of evil - or the responsibility for action. 

Teaming up with Sheriff Spears and two fearless residents - Army veteran Nick Jones and groundskeeper Effie Johnson - Robinson begins a risky defense. The solitary inhabitants of the Inn will have to learn, before time runs out, that their only choice is between standing together - or dying alone.

Great Book!!!!

I really like this book a lot. Patterson and Fox have created a very likable protagonist. Billy Robinson is a disgraced cop from Boston who was thrown off the force after beating a man silly based on information his partner provided. The information was wrong.
Robinson leaves Boston and purchases an Inn with his wife When she dies after being struck by a car, he continues to run the inn on his own. He sees himself as a caretaker and takes in some permanent residents. Those that live there full time are a strange bunch that don't necessarily fit the norm.
A particularly nasty drug dealer moves into town and shortly after a young woman under Billy's care dies from an overdose. Since most of the local police are on the take Billy is forced to take matters into his own hands. Luckily has a loyal group living at his Inn to watch his back.
Edoardo Ballerini does an outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Another dumb book by Patterson co-writers

Sorry...as usual, this series has become simplistic, predictable and read by awful readers. Couldn't finish it.

Poor

Not that good. Could only take ~2hrs before I turned it off. Think it’s time to give up on Patterson.

Great Read!

I'm an avid reader and a big James Patterson fan. Was looking forward to this one and it didn't disappoint! Has a couple of plot twists that even took me by surprise. highly recommend

Patterson is losing his touch

I stopped at chapter 30. The book was not getting me hooked. Very disappointed. Patterson needs a reboot in writing.

Below average...no mystery to ponder.

The story line and action parts were way too predictable. Even Ballerini couldn't add enough flare to save this story from a low rating. He had some issues with the Boston accent. Let's just say It's not his long suit. Cheers, Ken

Just OK

I did not enjoy this book. For me it just plugged along. I found it boring. The audio performance was good, though.

Not Patterson’s best

Not up to what I have read by JP. Also using a narrator who sounds very much like the narrator used on several recent Michael Bennett books — lost some of the story clarity.

Surprised at Language

I love books by James Patterson but was quite surprised at how often the "f" word was used in this book. Itt didn't add anything to the story. The overuse of this word in book writing adds nothing. There are many other words to use that give the same emphasis to a story.
