This is the anything-that-could-go-wrong, did-go-wrong-book. I’ve never been a fan of the ocean. Frankly, it terrifies me, and my rule of thumb for being in water has always been “If I can’t clearly see my toes touching the bottom, and if it is home to any living creatures - it’s not for me”. So yeah, bathtubs and swimming pools are the only bodies of water I inhabit. That being said, that is probably why this book scared me and may or may not have contributed to a new stomach ulcer.
It was definitely a “can’t put it down” story, and I read it in one sitting. This was not the typical Patterson story that keeps you guessing until the end. I like the way the “bad guy” is ousted right at the beginning. Still, there were twists, turns and tons of suspense.
If you’re a James Patterson fan, then Sail is one you will definitely want in your collection.
