Tom Dunleavy has a one man law firm in the richest resort town in America-the legendary East Hampton. His clients come from the year-rounders he grew up with, the people who make a living serving the rich.
An old friend of Tom's, a local star athlete, is arrested for a triple murder on the beach near a movie star's mansion. Tom knows in his gut that Dante Halleyville is innocent.
Tom decides to represent Dante along with the superlawyer he has recruited-Kate Costello. Kate is his ex-girlfriend, and they try to work together to discover who really executed three locals and why they went to such incredible lengths to set up Dante as the killer. The also end up discovering that the feelings they had for each other never really went away.
With the entire nation's eyes on this Trial of the Century, Tom orchestrates a series of revelations to lure the real killer out of hiding-and what emerges is staggering. No one could imagine a killer this ruthless.
A different read by Patterson, but still retains that can't put it down style.
