You know it's going to be a rough summer when you spend Father's Day visiting your dad in the local lockup.Noah's dad is sure that the owner of the Coral Queen casino boat is flushing raw sewage into the harbor, which has made taking a dip at the local beach like swimming in a toilet. He can't prove it though, and so he decides that sinking the boat will make an effective statement. Right. The boat is pumped out and back in business within days and Noah's dad is stuck in the clink.

A Disappointment

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 10-02-05

I am a huge fan of this author and have "read" all of his previous novels and loved them all. I was very excited when I saw that he wrote a new book and immediately bought it... only to be disappointed. It should have been a short story rather than a novel as there was not much plot development and the story seemed streched to make it into a novel. All in all, an ok book.
