Sail by James Patterson and Howard Roughan
Dr. Katherine Dunne takes a two-month vacation in order to reconnect with her kids. Their relationship had been strained since losing her first husband (the children's father) and remarrying renowned defense attorney, Peter Carlyle. They embark on a sailing journey with her ex-brother in law, Jake Dunne. Soon after setting sail, things begin to go terribly wrong. The family must work together through one harrowing event to the next, fighting for their lives.
As with most of Patterson's newer books, Sail received a wide range of mixed reviews. While the writing may not be top notch, it is nonetheless an entertaining thrill ride that had me turning page after page. I couldn't put it down until it was done. I am always entertained by Patterson's books, which to me is the most important quality of reading.
