Whether he's tracking down a chameleon con artist in Europe, reporting on the infiltration of the Aryan Brotherhood into the U.S. prison system, or riding in a cyclone-tossed skiff with a scientist hunting the elusive giant squid, the author of The Lost City of Z revels in telling stories that explore the nature of obsession.
