I came across this book by chance and enjoyed it a lot - that is, as far as formatted thrillers go. The story is composed of a few threads that will, as everyone knows, all bind together and form a clear picture. The author is a seasoned writer and it shows. In the beginning I was almost tempted to speed read the main protagonist's father's letters. Big mistake if I would have done this, for therein lies some of Mr Wilson's best storytelling. The pages of italics were a turn-off. In the end a great tale that left me wondering how many more of this type of books I will read in my lifetime. There must be more to fiction than this, but it helped pass a rainy weekend, so thanks for that.
