This is not a treatise on bad parenting but it could be. A giant of a man (in his own mind) lays out a daunting task for his sons. The tale is a combination of Indiana Jones and the Rockford Files.
The story focuses more on Tom and Sally than it does on the other brothers and father. There is a despicable villain that behaves predictably and a secondary villain that does not.
There is Wall Street drama with jungle terrors, snakes, tombs, a lost city and automatic weapons with enough action to satisfy most adrenaline junkies.
It was an entertaining book.
