Bizarre book, but very intriguing. A successful man is arrested one day. He is accused of child pornography. While he is in jail, his wife divoreces him. His company goes bankrupt. His daughter and wife refuse to speak to him. His daughter dies. And he yearns to get out. He has to admit his guilt and then show recovery in order to be released. So he does. The story develops showing his childhood, how he met his wife, develops their characters, and the people close to him start dying. A connection between himself and the government is also developed, showing a conspiracy theory. Really interesting.
