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.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Joel Barnes | 2/15/2014

    " i would never read the best seller trash on my own but someone had it and I had nothing else to read. Unbelievably bad. might be the worst book I've ever read. who decidedes that this is what people should buy? complete absense of writing style, real characters, or plot. the whole book hinges on a twist that does nothing to explain or payoff anything that happened anywhere else and is completely unsupported by the events of the story. just awful. "

    " Interesting book and yes it did have an interesting twist but I wanted to know abit more than the brief snapshot we were allowed to see once the twist had been revealed. "

    " Decent. I did not predict the ending. Wish I could go back & reread now that I know the ending. Quick one. "

    " Another good James Patterson book. Read it in less than a week. Not exactly a "can't put down" read, but close. I would like to see Mr. Patterson write a book around the character of Mack Mullen. I really love this old guy! "
