Jack Mullen si è fatto dal nulla. Laureato in legge con ottimi voti è entrato come praticante in uno studio legale di New York. Brillante e determinato, ha trovato nell'amore di Dana, affascinante figlia di un importante uomo d'affari, la strada per il successo. Suo fratello Peter è bello, spensierato, piace a tutti. Vive negli Hamptons, dove i famigliari di Dana possiedono una villa principesca. E proprio sulla spiaggia antistante la villa viene ritrovato il suo cadavere. Un tragico incidente, dicono tutti, a cominciare da Dana e da suo padre, che era solito ingaggiare il giovane come parcheggiatore durante le feste. Morte accidentale: questa la conclusione dell'inchiesta. Ma Jack non può credere a questa versione e, con l'aiuto di un'investigatrice, inizia a indagare tra le pieghe oscure di una vicenda che si fa sempre più torbida e intricata...

As posted in [ http://www.amazon.com]: This is my first book that I've read of Patterson's. I saw his list of books and found it interesting that he co-writes with other authors. However, it doesn't seem to be a bad idea. With *The Beach House*, I found it to be interesting how fast you can read throu Leggi tutto
"You wouldn't think a motorcycle is a place for quiet reflection" The Beach House by James Patterson I do not get why I cannot get involved in any Jame s Patterson books I read. This one was no different. AND it takes place in the Hamptons..much fun! Except not really. Way to many characters and not th Leggi tutto
I'm not a big James Patterson fan, but I liked this book. The short chapters are great! -seems like I read a book with short chapters faster because I think, "Oh just one more chapter won't hurt; it's only 1:00am and I can breeze thru another 3 before 1:30." ha! My favorite quote from the book is on Leggi tutto
It's probably not fair for me to review this book, since I only made it 70 pages in. I just was not interested! My mind was wandering and I'd have to read the page again! I won't know if it's the author or just the book because I don't really feel like picking up another one of this guy's books. Plu Leggi tutto
I love a well written mystery book! And this one was very well written! When I first read the title of this book, the first thought that crossed my mind, was “I should have read this book next summer, not now... so near the Christmas holiday”, but now, after finishing it... I’m so happy that I didn’ Leggi tutto
i read this only because there was absolutely nothing left to read and no way of obtaining anything else to read. it served to remind me why i have never, and will never again, read a james patterson "novel." (term used EXTREMELY loosely.) why are all his chapters 3 paragraphs long? why does anyone
Maybe it's because I haven't read a James Patterson book in a while, or maybe it's Peter De Jonge's influence (I haven't read anything by him before), but this story didn't impress me the way most of Patterson's novels -- especially the Alex Cross stories -- have. The story seems rushed, a feeling th Leggi tutto
I am not a big Patterson fan, but I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I read it while stuck in a traffic jam for three hours. I don't think I have ever read a book that quickly. A page burner.
Another good mystery. I really enjoy Patterson's book. They keep your interest right from the beginning.
His books were better when he wrote alone...
