Dark Father by James Cooper

This is the story of Jimmy, Frank & Mack. Told in three distinct threads, it is the tale of a man hell bent on pursuing his wife and son across country, of a father descending into madness after the abduction of his son, and of a man in a psychiatric institution who sees his father in everyone he meets.

This was very cleverly written story. At first it appeared to be three different stories about three different men, but they all came together in a surprising ending. The characters were easy to relate to, and their situations were those that any of us could find ourselves in. The pace was spot on, and I read the book in two sittings. This is the first book I have read by this author, and judging by the standard of this, I shall be looking out for more....this was amazing!
