Plot : Anne organizes a sailing vacation for her three children because she feels that the family is falling apart. Disaster happens and Anne's family are lost at sea, injured and dysfunctional. The accident is masterminded by someone close to them, the antagonist is revealed early on and the motive is never in doubt. All the tension and suspense in the book is found in Anne Dunne's fight for survival and the antagonist's race to cover his tracks.
James Patterson have produced another winning beach read guaranteed to keep the pages turning. It's fast paced and fun but lacks real substance or charm. Some of the characters growth is undefined but it will not stop you from turning the pages.
