Brooks places the epicenter of the Bigfoot war in a high-tech hideaway populated by the kind of people you might find in a Jurassic Park franchise: the schmo who doesn’t know how to do much of anything but tries anyway, the well-intentioned bleeding heart, the know-it-all intellectual who turns out to know the wrong things, the immigrant with a tough backstory and an instinct for survival. He is the author of some of the most popular series of the past two decades – the Alex Cross, Women’s Murder Club, Detective Michael Bennett and Private novels – and he has written many other number one bestsellers including romance novels and stand-alone thrillers.

Astonishingly, all the victims cooperate and the world watches some kid bring down one of the most powerful businessmen in America.Describes a book or dust jacket that has the complete text pages (including those with maps or plates) but may lack endpapers, half-title, etc. Jack feels his brother could never have drowned because he was a strong swimmer and knew the Atlantic since childhood. Motivated by a hundred forms of grief, Jack rallies his hometown friends to help him find the truth of Peter's death-no matter how rich or corrupt the people who stand in their way. As it unfolds that his brother was involved with some of the richest women and men in America – in ways Jack never imagined – his dream of justice fades. They kept going on my nerves that much, that at some point I started skipping pages whenever they shared a scene.

As I stated previously, I am a great fan of James Paterson, and I do believe this was one of his best. 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.Jack has no other option than to build up a team of people who agree with him and try to solve the crime. The brother of the deceased is a law student working as a summer associate at a New York City law firm. 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. A tasty, if not always tasteful, tale of supernatural mayhem that fans of King and Crichton alike will enjoy.

You feel Jack’s helplessness, bitterness against the law system and you just can’t wait for him to teach the bad guys a lesson.

Peter's brother, Jack, a brilliant law student and later a lawyer, goes about to prove that Peter was murdered. With *The Beach House*, I found it to be interesting how fast you can read through a book with small chapters. 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. Effectively moving and comedic at the same time, Patterson's main character gives The Beach House a much more invigorating tale. I could feel de Jong's influence a bit on this one as some sections had rambling characters and a feeling of just running on, which is rare for Patterson in his short and concise sentences and chapters.
