Montauk lawyer Tom Dunleavy's client list is woefully small - occasional real estate closings barely keep him in paper clips. When he is hired to defend a local man accused in a triple murder that has the East Hampton world in an uproar, he knows that he has found the case of his lifetime. The crime turns the glittering playground for the super-rich into a blazing inferno. Dunleavy's client is a local hero, but Dunleavy knows the case rests atop a volcano of money, deception, and forbidden desires. His client is the perfect fall guy - unless he can find the key that unlocks the secret rooms of the gilt-shrouded set. When Dunleavy is joined by his former flame, the savvy and well-connected attorney, Kate Costello, he believes he has a chance. But payback is a bitch - especially from the rich. The violent retaliations of billionaires threatened by his investigation exceed anything Dunleavy has ever seen. With the entire nation's eyes on him in a new Trial of the Century, Dunleavy orchestrates a series of revelations that lead to a stunning outcome - only to find afterward that the truth is wilder than anything he ever imagined.

It's just incomplete, character development suffers and the plot jumps around almost as if Patterson writes one chapter and the other writer writes the next without reading the prior chapter. This book is no different. I liked most of t...
It was hard to put it down. I'll give it that much. But it was far from one of my favorite James Patterson books. Actually it was pretty obvious Patterson did not write this book himself. The twist got me, but overall it had a very amateurish feel to it. I wanted a quick, easy read and it did fulfil...
One of my favorite Patterson books and actually I think the first one I read of his. Good book and good storyline.
