A Boat Off the Coast

A Boat Off the Coast

(1987)
A novel by

 
Library Journal
In high school Brian had always thought Tucker a heroa little wild, great at football, always fun. Fifteen years later Brian is married, a supervisor at a chicken factory, and a daily lobster fisherman off the coast of Maine. Tucker, back from Vietnam, has also married; but his ''heroism'' is seen through by Brian's wife, Margaret. The two young men get involved in cocaine smuggling, Margaret's sister is conquered by Tucker, and all hell breaks loose when Tucker tries to cheat the suppliers. While the characters don't always ring true, there is plenty of action here and enough suspense to hook the reader. An above-average adventure story that is very readable. Robert H. Donahugh, Youngstown and Mahoning Cty. P.L., Ohio
