Review of "Five Steps"
This story begins in Hong Kong with a devastating explosion that kills John's wife and son, and nearly kills him. When John is finally released from the hospital, he returns to the scene of the accident looking for something, anything to make sense of what happened. He finds a computer memory stick with five random phone numbers on it. Desperate to find a new meaning for his life, John sells his belongings and decides to track down the people associated with the phone numbers. What John finds in these five steps is amazing; it frees his spirit from the heartache of his lost family and readies him for his final journey. Tim donates his book royalties to Isslcare Foundation Ltd, a charity for the old, poor and needy in Hong Kong. 4 Stars
