Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in legendary East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him in paper clips. His principal clients make a living serving the rich. The billionaires and megacelebrities swarming the beaches already have lawyers on their payroll.
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.
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.
The final scenes of Beach Road unveil a truth that will leave readers gasping in shock.

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
Here's a book you may want to take to the beach this summer. Former basketball star turned lawyer Tom Dunleavy is asked to represent a teenaged athlete accused of murdering four young men. With his former lover, also a lawyer, Dunleavy sets out to present a formidable defense. You'll never guess whodunit because the answer lacks credibility. Nonetheless, the cast is so uniformly proficient that the story moves along in spite of the inept plot. Of singular note is Billy Baldwin's characterization of Dunleavy. One wonders why Richard Ferrone's talents and unique voice are wasted on announcing the chapters and characters. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
