#29: Beach Road

Another great mystery by James Patterson. Beach Road was a good story with murder, drug dealers, movie stars, a trial, and a great twist to the ending set in an elite beach community on the East Coast. One thing that was interesting about Beach Road is each chapter is told from the point of view of the different characters in the story. There were about 5 or 6 different perspectives and 2 of them had the most chapter time (maybe about 75%). The 2 characters that told most of the story are lawyers representing a teen who was accused of murdering 4 people right before he headed off to college and had dreams of a promising career in the NBA. I think I like this mystery because the point of the book wasn’t to find out who committed the murders but how to prove the accused teen was innocent. Also, the fact that the conclusion came as a shock was a big key to what made the story good. I would say this is my favorite James Patterson book I’ve read this year.
