What Beach Road is about:
Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in the wealthy resort town of East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him in paper clips because the local rich people already have their own lawyers. 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. Now representing Dante is what could be the Trial of the Century, Tom recruits Manhattan superlawyer Kate Costello to help. With the entire nation's eyes on him, Tom orchestrates a series of revelations to expose the killer. And what emerges is staggering --- and will shock everyone.
I spent four hours on the beach waiting for my husband and our friends to get back from Salmon fishing on Lake Michigan and this book helped those hours fly right by. It was a great summer beach read and worth the .50 cents that I paid for it. The story was fast and furious and the ending made me growl with madness, especially because I never saw it coming!! If you enjoy Patterson's books then this one would be a great addition to the beach bag....

Reason for reading it: Because it had the word Beach in the title and it was only .50 cents!
