THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
For seven unsuspecting victims, death comes in the dark . . .
Once a luxurious getaway for a wealthy Southern family, the Summer House has long since fallen into disrepair. Its fall from grace is complete when it becomes the scene of a horrific mass murder.
Shocking evidence points to four Army Rangers recently returned from Afghanistan. The Army sends Major Jeremiah Cook, a war veteran and former NYPD cop, to investigate.
As Cook and his team struggle to put together pieces of evidence that just won't fit, powerful forces rally against them to try to ensure that damning secrets are buried along with the victims.
'No one gets this big without amazing natural storytelling talent - which is what Jim has, in spades.' LEE CHILD
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The Summer House sees thriller titan James Patterson pair up with longtime collaborator Brendan DuBois for another masterful pageturner. It’s a tangled, twisted tale of mass murder, law enforcement, the military and elusive justice, involving a grotesque crime that takes place in a ramshackle holiday home. From the first page, Patterson and DuBois plunge readers straight into the action, prioritising a fast-paced plot that keeps readers on their toes. The novel’s beguiling protagonist, Jeremiah Cook—a tormented veteran and former cop—and eerie American South setting help suffuse the story with plenty of gripping tension and an atmosphere of unease.
Not really my cup of tea but still a decent read. If you’re into light hearted military thrillers then this ones for you.
