A good page turner about a young law student who tries to find out who murdered
his brother out at Montauk on Long Island. The killer is so well connected and
powerful that the police and the court system work for him and against the hero
and his friends. The conclusion is dramatic. I prefer Patterson to write books
like this where the protagonist is a white male rather than a black one or a
woman. All his heroes are Catholics. He apparently feels more comfortable
writing as a black or a woman than as a non-Catholic.
