I really like the way that this book was narrated. Once again, James Patterson throws in a really surprising twist at the end. I did NOT see this one coming! Loved it!

Beach Road was a great book. I hated that one of the main characters ended up being the killer, but it was still a good shocker at the end. Would recommend this read to anyone.
