The premise of Final Passage is the main character, Martin Lancaster, is trying to figure out what really happened to his father - who was killed at sea while sailing. During his investigation, Martin is unable to find his father's logbook, a piece of evidence that would shed more light on the elder Lancaster's untimely death.

With that plot in the background, Martin goes about his life, running his own advertising agency and trying to get his daughter Alice on a straight path towards responsible

Martin that he had everything going for him. He is married has a beautiful daughter and his own business. His biggest client shows up in his office to let him know they are withdrawing their business for another company. With this one event Martin's life goes into a tailspin. Everything starts to go wrong. Martin is also trying to find out the truth about what happened to his father and what truth the missing logbook might reveal about his tragic death.

This started out okay and ended okay, but

I read this one a while back and am just now getting around to reviewing it. I really liked this one. I would think I knew what happened and think I had it figured out and then it would throw me a curve ball and I was wrapped up in it again. It kept my attention and the actual storyline was interesting and held my attention.

A thoroughly enjoyable read, full of twists and turns. Great premise, well-drawn characters, and polished writing that flows.

The yachting setting plays a major part – a character in its own right. Fascinating. If a novel can inform as well as entertain, then for me, it’s a winner.

Highly recommended. I look forward to reading more from Tim Frost.

Recommends it for: Anyone that enjoys a great mistery/thriller.
Just finished reading this book in one week. Great story line and a lot of twists and turns throughout the book that keep you guessing, just when you think you've figured it out another twist is thrown in. Great/happy ending!!

Escapist adventure taking place mainly on a yacht around the Caribbean and featuring one very unlucky PR man and his estate agent brother.

This was a great story.

Well written, with only a one small issue; some of the story "jumped" in spots (from being "the story" then to being in the main characters thoughts) BUT, I think that confusion might have been from it being an ebook. I'm sure the spacing/text distinguished it better in print form.

Overall, this was a great book with a good twist at the end. I like happy endings.

British author pens adventure thriller centered around a yachting race from the Canary Islands to Grenada in celebration of Columbus's 500th anniversary. Our hero is a nice mix of good guy and dumb cluck who has gotten himself in a world of trouble. This is a proverbial page turner and nice, very light summer reading.

I really enjoyed this book. It had a minor flaw or two (and let's face it, most mysteries do) but was an enjoyable read. And, in the process, learned quite a bit about sailing! Thanks for publishing in ePub so I was able to read on my eNook.

Did not finish. Did not like the main character; perhaps his personality (risk-taker, always thinking tomorrow will be better, no attention to details) is the problem. Overdrawn at the bank, but he can't stop spending/losing money foolishly.

Good read

About me: I am a novice reader and just started reading books.

I really enjoyed this book. The story is great and keeps you entertained. I felt that I was actually a part of the story and could visualize the scenes while I was reading.

Really enjoyed this book. Did a lot of sailing as a child and it bought back some wonderful mememories. Very well written. Good story of family torn by secrets unshared.

Got this as a free book on my nook and started it bacause I didn't have anything else at the time. It turned out to be exciting with murder, mystery, romance, and drama. I was quite surprised.

slow start, and I couldn't help thinking what a moron the main character was. It got better as it went on, but I still didn't like Martin

It was not the best written book. It took me awhile to get use to the 1st person dialogue. But the plot was intriguing and interesting.

I got this ebook free at Barnes & Noble. I enjoyed the beginning of the story, in the middle I thought Martin was a real moron, but liked the twist at the end.
