Written by the younger brother about his older brother, this is a story about the Lockerbie bombing disaster in 1988. The older brother was one of those on the plane. The surviving brother has written an elegant and interesting book about coming to terms with his brother's death. One of the books highly rated by Nick Hornby in his column collection, Ten Years in the Tub, which was a valuable source of really excellent reading material.
