  1. Restored Thread 6th March 2012, 04:07 PM Binker I am not sure that this book belongs under "Sport," but I couldn't figure out a better place and the book contains several references to Touching The Void, so I thought I might as well put it here. This book tells the story of a young Canadian man, Duncan MacPherson, who disappears in Europe in August 1989 and his parents, Bob and Lynda who spend years and years and years trying to figure out what happened to him. Their last-ditch effort is to contact this writer and ask him to investigate, which he does and appears to do successfully. Sadly, what the family learns is so appalling, that they have a new round of horrible things to cope with. The reason I read this book in the first place is that I am friends with a friend of the writer's mother. He is from Texas, but has lived in Vienna for quite awhile (his other book was about a serial killer from Vienna, Jack Unterweger). But I am pleased to say that he writes very well. It's a complicated story and he tells it clearly, so clearly that I figured out what had happened almost as soon as the most important clues were revealed. He also comes up with a good explanation for why the various people in the story acted as they did and I think he's probably right. I don't know how easy it is to get your hands on this book, but if you do, it's a good read.
