About this deal

and his astonishing plan to beat the billionaires will have you reeling --- and cheering --- to the very last page. I can't believe it took me so long to read this book, I started loving to read late in life only about 2 years ago so I am very behind!

Brooks is a pro at building suspense even if it plays out in some rather spectacularly yucky episodes, one involving a short spear that takes its name from “the sucking sound of pulling it out of the dead man’s heart and lungs. Not to fear: Just because megaselling Patterson has teamed up once more with journalist collaborator de Jonge ( Miracle on the 17th Green, 1996) doesn’t make the pace of this slick, ludicrous thriller any slower, the puppets any more complex, or the sentences any longer. Kidnapping a billionaire, his wife, and a well revered New York attorney is part of the suspense and excitement. The brother of the deceased is a law student working as a summer associate at a New York City law firm.

One brother goes balls out to find justice for his brother against the rich and famous and a corrupt police force and I bounced in my chair and cheered him on. With *The Beach House*, I found it to be interesting how fast you can read through a book with small chapters. We are—well, ask Bigfoot, as Brooks does in this delightful yarn, following on his bestseller World War Z (2006). His brother would never have committed suicide, particularly since the body looks like Peter was beaten to death. I know it left me cheering along as Jack stuck it to those who had caused him and his family (among others) so much harm.To my knowledge, Patterson has never written Mitchner-length chapters, but he at least used them to build suspense. The Mullen family has had a very bad week by the beginning of the book, the mother passed away years ago, and by the first half of the book 2 more family members are gone. When his brother Peter turns up dead with a strong suspicion of suicide, law student, Jack Mullen decides that it is time to figure out what really happened. They are at least reading copies, complete and in reasonable condition, but usually secondhand; frequently they are superior examples.

Peter Mullen body was washed a shore on the beach outside the home of business tycoon Barry and Campion Neubauer, Memorial Day Weekend, in the Hamptons. They kept going on my nerves that much, that at some point I started skipping pages whenever they shared a scene. For instance, you would get to a particularly interesting part in the story, something shocking would happen, and then the chapter would end -- the break in text worked as a tension builder. The backlash creates a determination to punish evil and the investigation continues as the balance swings back and forth between the bad guys and the good guys.Jack Mullen is in law school in New York City when the shocking news comes that his brother Peter has drowned in the ocean off East Hampton. 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. As he narrates, the reader grows closer and closer to him, almost to the point where we're so associated with James that we are as hard-pressed to uncover the truth as the characters in the story are.
