The Beach House by James Patterson and Peter de Jonge

Book Description

June 10, 2002
Jack Mullen is in law school in New York City when the shocking news comes that his brother Peter has drowned in the ocean off East Hampton. Jack knows his brother and knows this couldnt be an accident. Someone must have wanted his brother dead. But the powers that be say otherwise. As Jack tries to uncover details of his brothers last night, he confronts a barricade of lawyers, police, and paid protectors who separate the multibillionaire summer residents from local workers like Peter. And he learns that his brother wasnt just parking cars at the summer parties of the rich. He was making serious money satisfying the sexual needs of the richest women and men in town.
THE BEACH HOUSE reveals the secret lives of celebrities in a breathtaking drama of revenge with a finale so shocking it could only have come from the mind of James Patterson.
This was my second listening to this book and I loved it even more this time.
The plot is wonderfully powerful as are all the characters involved. You root for the good guys and hiss and cuss the bad guys and there is no uncertainty which is which. Some of it is hard to listen to or read because it’s graphic in its detail, but that’s one reason I’ve always liked James Patterson, he pulls no  punches.  Excellent read and I highly suggest you pick it up.
