One Bad Thing

(2000)
A novel by

 
McKenna is a good man gone mad with grief. Blaming himself for the accidental death of his teenage daughter, killed by druggies at a party, he's given up his house and business, bought a boat, and sailed away with his wife, Caroline - only to fight with her, and send her home when they reach Tortola, in the British Virgin Islands." "McKenna has to take on a new crewman to sail back to Boston, and he picks handsome young Tom Cain. But Cain is not the innocent he appears to be. He is using McKenna's boat to smuggle diamonds, and when a Coast Guard vessel hails the boat, he promises McKenna a share . . . if he will lie to save him. McKenna agrees, and that one lie puts his life in danger, forces him to commit murder, and enmeshes him in a web of international crime." "First he has to kill the murderous Cain to survive. And then the people Cain cheated come after McKenna. And Caroline. He hates himself and wants out, but can't escape even by giving the jewels back. It is a downhill slide that threatens McKenna and his wife, as the tension mounts and the body-count grows.
