Read in July, 2009

It took some head-scratchin' for me to figure out why I didn't much enjoy this super-competently-written thriller, but it boils down to character. The Dawn Patrol are a group of San Diego surfers who all qualify as Beautiful People. Granted, none of them are rich, but they're definitely the Cool Clique: not a loser among them. When it comes to thrillers, especially surfer-thrillers (see Tapping The Source, by Kem Nunn) I most willingly swallow the hook when there's a genuinely revolting sad-sack sitting in the center.
