Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“James Patterson knows how to sell thrills and suspense in clear, unwavering prose.” People
“So inviting that it practically reads itself.” New York Times
“Taut, spare prose…A delicious, fast-paced read quite worthy of its place on bestseller lists.” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“Vintage Patterson, with plenty of action, villains with hearts blacker than obsidian, and a working-class hero who pulls himself up by the bootstraps. Patterson and de Jonge previously coauthored the inspirational golf romance Miracle on the 17th Green, but this new game of money, mayhem, and murder clearly suits them to a tee.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“A stirring thriller filled with nonstop action…An invigorating tale.” Midwest Book Review
“Slick, vastly enjoyable…Smooth as a vanilla milkshake…This is smart, market-savvy, populist entertainment.” Publishers Weekly
“[Patterson] certainly doesn’t fail to thrill, and readers will be turning the pages until the end.” Booklist
“Gil Bellows of Ally McBeal epitomizes the twenty-something angst and grief experienced by narrator Jack Mullen…Bellows’ voice has just enough of a tough-guy edge to it to make his narration believable and compelling. A good story with many twists, The Beach House is a great story to curl up with.” AudioFile
