The mounting evidence of ever more and ever worse skulduggery will pull Tempe deeper and deeper down what even she sees as a rabbit hole before she confronts a ringleader implicated in “Drugs. I've only read one other book by him, but The Beach House impressed me so much that it gets an ultimate recommendation. Another sweltering month in Charlotte, another boatload of mysteries past and present for overworked, overstressed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. But if Patterson fails to completely convince, he certainly doesn't fail to thrill, and readers will be turning the pages until the end. Patterson paints a vivid picture of each character, especially the rich family's history that leads to the reader's constant emotional attachment to James and his brother.

Anyway I was going to the beach so I thought it appropriate to take this book Beach House with me and I absolutely love James P and murder mystery books. In the court of public opinion, unjustified deaths are reconciled and the rich guys are found guilty as sin. Effectively moving and comedic at the same time, Patterson's main character gives The Beach House a much more invigorating tale.

Heavner isn’t exactly mollified when Tempe, aided by retired police detective Skinny Slidell and a host of experts, puts a name to the dead man.

It becomes a battle between the townies and the rich summer resident who appears to be implicated in the death. Brooks presents a case for making room for Bigfoot in the world while peppering his narrative with timely social criticism about bad behavior on the human side of the conflict: The explosion of Rainier might have been better forecast had the president not slashed the budget of the U. As Jack tries to uncover details of his brother’s last night, he confronts a maddening barricade of lawyers, police, and paid protectors who separate the wealthy summer residents from local workers like Peter. I did not really c are to read to the end because the story never felt scary or creepy or like much of anything. There are no big surprises in The Beach House, but it's vintage Patterson, with plenty of action, villains with hearts blacker than obsidian, and a working-class hero who pulls himself up by the bootstraps.By the end, fans may start to miss Alex Cross, whose presence could have given this flyaway story some weight. The brother of the deceased is a law student working as a summer associate at a New York City law firm. Jack feels his brother could never have drowned because he was a strong swimmer and knew the Atlantic since childhood. Jack’s warned off the case by Chief Detective Frank Volpi, and his girlfriend, the Neubauers’ daughter Dana, bails on him—though luckily, Nelson, Goodwin and Mickel’s top investigator, Pauline Grabowski, who’s just as smart and beautiful, is poised to take her place.

It's not much of a surprise, but the elaborate and believable setup that Patterson stages is suspenseful enough to keep the reader flipping every page until they finally get to the inevitable conclusion. Short chapters combined with the ability to start off with a bang and keep the action coming make for a great read. It's not that Patterson's thriller breaks a lot of ground in the suspense/thriller literary genre, in fact opting for a simple storyline touching on themes of money as power and the ease the rich have in covering up their dirty deeds. There was nothing earth shattering in the story, but it was a crime thriller that had an unusual resolution to the crime.

The East Hampton cops say that proletarian nobody Peter Mullen stopped parking cars to smoke a joint and drown during zillionaire Barry and Campion Neubauer’s Memorial Day Party in Montauk. The fact of the matter is, The Beach House is an excellent novel full of intrigue, emotion, and mystery.
