Beach Road by James Patterson

Synopsis :

Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in legendary East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him in paper clips. His principal clients make a living serving the rich. The billionaires and mega 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. Dante asks him 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 Kate is 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.

The final scenes of Beach Road unveil a truth that will leave readers gasping in shock.

Beach Road is a book co-written by James Patterson and Peter De Jonge.  It basically has the short chapter James Patterson formula.   However, it's uniqueness is that you will never be able to guess the ending.

To me the ending can be everything and this has one of the most epic ending of all times.  The plot itself is pretty standard fare but the ending!

I think I read Beach Road twice over a period of a few years and it's one book that I don't mind reading again, if I have the time as I simply just love the ending.  It really had mt gasping in shock!
