What a terrible book. The Lost Years is a short read but not worth the time. A professor finds a letter that might of been written by Jesus and he ends up dead. Half of his friends and family become detectives who think they are better detectives than the professionals and then the other half of his friends and family are suspects of killing him. Eventually no one really gives a fuck how the dad/professor died and only care about finding the letter. The murderer/stealer becomes really obvious half way through the book without any kind of twist or sense.
