SAIL—James Patterson & Howard Roughan—I'd agree with the frequent mention of Amazon reviewers this a a good, suspenseful, beach or pool thriller; a fun summer evening read. Short on character development but long on new and vastly varying stressful situation from explosions to snakes the family Dunne struggles to survive. The dysfunctional Dunne family goes sailing, the hope of the physician mother to bring the family together and help resolve the problems of the druggie, the bulemic and growing problems of the 10 year old. Patterson and Roughan pull it off in summer reading style bringing the book to a convoluted and somewhat dissatisfying conclusion. As has been said, not much new—but it keeps you reading.
