The Beach House by James Patterson
The Beach House, by James Patterson, is one of his stand-alone novels that are not a part of any series. I expected it to be a quick read, like many of his books are, and I was right. It was quick and somewhat pointless.
Honestly? I didn’t love the book at all. I thought the premise was good but the end was pretty ridiculous. Essentially the story is about a young lawyer trying to find out who killed his younger brother. He goes to some pretty extreme measures to accomplish this task.
I complain a good deal about Patterson’s books and yet I do continue to read them. They are rarely satisfying and yet they keep me occupied when I need something quick to read. If you are a fan, you might as well read it. If you haven’t read his books, I wouldn’t start with this one.
