Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult
Additionally, and slight spoiler alert: the son is gay. You find that out pretty early on, and it's implied that this is the source of a massive disagreement between him and his father, but the father is in a coma the entire book, so the tension is a little contrived. It would have been better if the father woke up from his coma with massive brain damage or something and he and his kids had to relearn who each other was...this would have more tension because the kids would remember things that the dad wouldn't and that would shade the conversations/interactions/etc.
I gave it four stars anyway because I couldn't put it down.
