Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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

Bill Robinson is starting over.

The Inn at Gloucester stands alone on the rocky New England 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.

Yet all too soon Robinson discovers that leaving the city is no escape from the dangers he left behind. A new crew of deadly criminals move into the small town, bringing drugs and violence to the front door of the inn.

Robinson feels the weight of responsibility on his shoulders. His sense of duty compels him to fight off the threat to his town. But he can't do it alone. Before time runs out, the residents of the inn will face a choice.

Stand together? Or die alone.

'James Patterson is The Boss. End of.' Ian Rankin

'No one gets this big without amazing natural storytelling talent - which is what Jim has, in spades.' Lee Child

"Their perfect escape could become their worst nightmare" --Front cover.
