I wholeheartedly recommend this book about the courageous and dogged author's journey to hell and back in the pursuit of finding his father. Exceptionally well written and fascinating, it embraces the best and worst of life. Tagging along, barely able to put it down, I was deeply touched by his raw emotion, abandonment, gratitude, frustration, anger, horror, betrayal and happiness.
Gary L Stewart's account of meeting his birth mother, and the events that transpired that lead to learning more about his biological father is astounding. He writes with honesty, and includes all evidence that he himself discovered. This book was a great read, and I learnt a lot about many things, not just about Earl Van Best Jr, but the goings on in San Francisco at that time, the inadequacies of the San Francisco Police Department, and how the Zodiac offered himself up to be caught multiple times, but to no avail.
