Benjamin Flew is dead-- a suicide. And Sam Wood wants to understand.
Two years ago, Sam (and seven others) received an enigmatic "goodbye world" email from Flew, one of Sam's former guitar students. Sam does not know any of the others who received the email, but his curiosity about the circumstances regarding Flew's death reaches a boiling point.
After lying to his girlfriend and abandoning his studies, Sam embarks on a road trip--a quest for discovery--accompanied only by his laptop, his phone, and an esoteric collection of classical CDs. Outlook, the fifth book from the mind of Charlie Johns, follows Sam on his journey as he engages with Benjamin's old colleagues--and runs face-first into a startling revelation.
