Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in America's wealthiest resort town, legendary East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him afloat. His clients make a living serving the rich, and the billionaires and celebrities swarming the beaches already have lawyers on their payroll. 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, and Dante asks Tom to represent him in what could be the trial of the century. Tom recruits Manhattan superlawyer Kate Costello to help. She's a tough hire, because she's his ex-girlfriend, but she agrees. In their search to find who really executed three locals, Tom orchestrates a series of revelations to expose the killer. And what emerges is staggering--and will shock everyone.

I enjoyed this book and was very surprised when I read the final few chapters. The ending was indeed not what I expected; poor Kate was again disappointed in her personal life. Read this book, as it is exciting and enjoyable. (My students had extra silent reading time so I could finish the last chapter before putting the book down!)

This interesting crime story with several unique characters is completely ruined by an idiotic twist at the end. What a waste!

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

After having written what should have been a four star novel, they ruined it with a terrible ending. What a waste!
I could have written a much bette ending---and I'm not a novelist.

I quit reading this book at least 3 times because it is too complicated to keep track of the characters. I picked it up for a final time and quit again! I love to read Patterson but this one was not good! The book seemed to have a good story line but I had to look back and remind myself which character was doing "the talking".
