When the body of famed true-crime writer Julian Wells is found in a boat drifting on a Montauk pond, the question isn't how he died, but why. The death looks like an obvious suicide, but why would Wells take his own life? And was this his only crime? Wells' best friend, Philip Anders, wants to know more. His first clue is an Argentinean crime, which may have been Wells' last book idea. As Anders gathers the missing parts of Wells' life, the man he knew--or thought he knew--becomes increasingly obscured, and the ever-deepening puzzle threatens to consume him entirely.

He again, as often his books, touches the theme about good and evil. He wonders: why people are capable of heinous crimes? This book is about loneliness, search for meaning, trust between parents and sons... There is a statement in the book about Julian's Wells books: They cannot be categorized. Crime and history, nonfiction and true crime, little nuggets of everything: history, science, philosophy, a vast number of quotations" - this is exactly about this book of Thomas Cook.
But somehow is kind of slow and sometimes boring, despite of supposedly interesting and exciting topic of trying to find answers to some mysteries.
