87. Sail by James Patterson/Howard Roughan

Since the death of her husband, Anne Dunne and her three children have struggled in every way. In a last ditch effort to save the family, Anne plans an elaborate sailing vacation to bring everyone together once again. But only an hour out of port, everything is going wrong. The teenage daughter, Carrie, is planning to drown herself. The teenage son, Mark, is high on drugs and ten-year-old Ernie is nearly catatonic. This is the worst vacation ever.
Anne manages to pull things together bit by bit, but just as they begin feeling like a family again, something catastrophic happens. Survival may be the least of their concerns.

Interesting book with lots going on. A very quick read.

Why does JP write with others when not writing Alex Cross mysteries? Is he taking someone elses idea and selling it with his name?

The book sounds great!

Just stopped by to let you know the Sense of Place Contest is ready for entries! Good Luck if you choose to participate! :)

Not sure why he does it. I prefer the Alex Cross series. Maybe he is not making enough money on his own.

I will have to stop by your blog.
