Twice as big as the White House, larger than Bill Gates' spread, it's The House That Ate The Hamptons!Bestselling author James Brady returns to the scene of his Hamptons triumphs in this sly, rollicking romp, the year's ultimate beach read. You'll be delighted by this band of celebrities, scalawags, and eccentrics as they attempt to thwart the construction of a monster mansion on Sagaponack's pristine beach. Columnist Beecher Stowe and his elegant amour Lady Alix Dunraven, gather a group of zany Hamptonites to unravel a mystery, who really owns the hated edifice that threatens to ruin the peace and beauty of the stately old resort of East Hampton? Among the pack are a mad architect, and a righteous Italian-American politico. But when the politician ends up with an arrow through his throat, the plot bubbles faster than Dom Perignon. From the stuffy Maidstone Club to the casual Blue Parrot hangout, Brady etches a brilliant mystery and a wildly witty portrait of one of America's most famous summer playgrounds!
