James Patterson's strongest team since the Women's Murder Club are the first responders when their seafront town is targeted by vicious criminals.


The Inn at Gloucester stands alone on the rocky shoreline. Its seclusion suits former Boston police detective Bill Robinson, novice owner and innkeeper. As long as the dozen residents pay their rent, Robinson doesn't ask any questions. Neither does Sheriff Clayton Spears, who lives on the second floor.


Then Mitchell Cline arrives, with a deadly new way of doing business. His crew of local killers break laws, deal drugs, and bring violence to the front door of the Inn. That's when Robinson realizes, with the help of journalist Susan Solie, that leaving the city is no escape from the reality of evil — or the responsibility for action.


Teaming up with Sheriff Spears and two fearless residents — Army veteran Nick Jones and groundskeeper Effie Johnson — Robinson begins a risky defense. The solitary inhabitants of the Inn will have to learn, before time runs out, that their only choice is between standing together — or dying alone.

Bill Robinson moves to Gloucester after being fired from the Boston police department. He runs an inn and has residents that have their own secrets. They all get along very well and consider each other family. When a drug dealer moves in the area and people are dying, Bill starts his own investigation. After that, people are trying to kill Bill and the residents of the inn. Bill swears he will do whatever he needs to do to put an end to the drugs in his area. This is a very good book from beginning to end.

Although not one of my favorites from Patterson, this was an engrossing thriller, Not one of his best; however, a gripping story of someone who leads unsuspecting people into the world of drugs and death.

Did not really like this book. Plot lines were quite unbelievable. Could not agree that the characters herein would react to the situations presented in the ways they did. Suspension of disbelief didn't work for me.

Not one of best or even better books. There are just some books I wish JP would not endorse. But as in all JPs books I finished it out of respect for James.

I did not enjoy this novel as well as other James Patterson books. There was not a character to root for or to really like.

It started off slow, but once I got into it I enjoyed the book in its entirety

I tried but couldn't get through it. Too many characters, slow plot. It is time for Patterson to go back to his beginnings and write his own works.
