This is an excellent account of one man's search to find the truth of a seemingly inexplicable crime that shattered so many individuals and families. There is a theme running through the book that the author does not address, nor would I expect him to: the cult of militarism that pervades so much of American society, that sucks young men and women into a physical and psychological meat grinder and spits them out on the other side, discarded. The cult also exists here in Canada, but to a much smaller extent. Fortunately for this country, Canadians generally have a much healthier skepticism of the military, and view it as a necessary, but not dominant part of our society.
