Dark mysteries come to East Hampton while a struggling lawyer fights to save his friend from being framed for a triple murder.
Montauk lawyer Tom Dunleavy's client list is woefully small-occasional real estate closings barely keep him in paper clips. So when he is hired to defend a local man accused in a triple murder in East Hampton, he knows that he has found the case of his lifetime.
The crime turns the glittering playground for the super-rich into a blazing inferno. Dunleavy's client is a local hero, but he knows the case rests on money, deception, and forbidden desires. His client will be framed-unless he can find the key to the case.
When Dunleavy is joined by his former flame, the savvy and well-connected attorney, Kate Costello, he believes he has a chance. But payback is a bitch, especially from the rich. The violent retaliations of billionaires threatened by his investigation exceed anything Dunleavy has ever seen. With the entire nation's eyes on him in a new Trial of the Century, Dunleavy orchestrates a series of revelations that lead to a stunning outcome-and the truth is wilder than anything he ever imagined.

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".

Patterson at his absolute best!
