Overview

One historic lake house. Seven murder victims.Four accused Army Rangers. Two versions of the truth.Only one can survive.
Sullivan County, Georgia, belongs to Sheriff Emma Williams. But not when Army Rangers posted to the local base are implicated in a major crime. To an elite team of investigators led by Major Jeremiah Cook, the physical evidence Williams swears by presents clues to an entirely different story.

The small-town sheriff has never worked a multiple homicide, and Cook knows it. Unless he can convince the locals that the recent crimes are part of a larger mystery, this outsider may never unlock the century of secrets hidden inside The Summer House.

It is not too quickly, but at a pace that keeps the reader engaged waiting to discover the outcome. It has a satisfactory ending which is a little predictable but ties up all the loose ends. Some of the male characters are a little too good to be true but that doesn’t spoil any part of the story. The author switches between the two time periods effortlessly and easily which doesn’t always happen in these kinds of books. Each storyline had a richness that was only strengthened by the comparison and contrast to the other.

  1. Matt

    Renewing their collaborative efforts, James Patterson and Brendan DuBois present readers with an intense and thrilling read in this new standalone novel. 

  2. Melissa Stablein

    I like reading James Patterson books and I love his idea of trying new ways to get people reading. This book was easily digestible even with little military knowledge. It has good twists and turns that are always leading to the finale

  3. Chasity Easter

    One could be forgiven for momentarily thinking that a book titled THE SUMMER HOUSE involves bodies passionately bouncing off of each other over the course of a week or two in June. James Patterson and Brendan DuBois’ novel is anything but that.

  4. Melody

    Excellent, excellent book! One of Patterson’s best. From the beginning there’s action and it continues throughout the book. I know it’s fiction, but I also know how some in the Deep South are and with the way things are right now in the US, there’s proof it all isn’t made up

  5. Darren

    I enjoyed reading this book. It had a good story to it. I liked the variety of characters in it. It was a well written book. It took me longer than normal for a james patterson book to read as some of the chapters were long but a good book to read overall.
