Admit it, summer wouldn’t be summer without a James Patterson blockbuster to keep us glued to our beach chairs! In Sail, it’s danger on the high seas as the #1 bestselling author takes us aboard a luxury yacht that’s about to set out—for hell.
Katherine Dunne is hoping a cruise on her late husband’s yacht will help her kids finally deal with his loss, suffered four years ago while diving from this very boat, and bring them together as a family. Katherine’s devoted brother-in-law and former lover, Jake, has agreed to man the helm in the absence of her too-busy new spouse, super-lawyer Peter Carlyle, and she’s grateful since Jake has a special bond with Katherine’s troubled daughter, Carrie. He’s also an idol to Mark, her other rebellious teen, and sweet 10-year-old Ernie adores him. And once they get underway, Jake does manage to unite the Dunnes—in a battle for their very lives….
The nightmare begins with an inexplicable leak in the hull followed by a monster storm that has everyone, under Jake’s leadership, pitching in to stay afloat. Their victory against the elements leaves the Dunnes euphoric! But then the unimaginable happens…and suddenly survival is the least of their concerns.

I loved this book - maybe because it is an escape from reality (isn't that the purpose of fiction?) For someone lucking for a thriller with more substance, try Harlan Coben. This one reads fast, keeps things moving, and has alot of surprises. I would definitely recommend!!

I LOVED it. This is one of his best books. You do not want to put it down. I can't wait until his next book.

First off I haven't read Sail yet but I am getting ready to order it and I am sure it will be good as all James Patterson books are. My response is to RF, if the last 5 books you have read have been so bad, why do you keep buying them? If I read one or two and I don't enjoy them, I don't buy that author any more or atleast not for a little while. Glad to know you have disliked them so much that you still help Mr Patterson go to the bank.

I don't buy the books, I borrow from library. I stop buying them when I realized what a waste of money it was. I read them hoping they would get better. JP used to write great books, and these more recent books does not do him justice.

This will be the last co-author book I buy by JP. I still like his Alex Cross & Murder Club books but the others are like B movies. The plot was thin, the characters where unlikable & the ending was silly. Come on Mr. Patterson, you can write wonderful books, quit letting novice authors hitch a ride on your reputation. It is not working.
