Set against the rise and fall of an anti-Vietnam War group and told through a series of emails from various people but mostly from Jim Grant, aka Janson Sinai to his daughter in London. His ex-wife, now that she has cleared herself up after three trips to rehab, sued him for custody of their daughter. Covering the period from the 1970s to 1996, this is thought-provoking stuff. I would say you should read it before seeing the slightly changed film.

Synopsis

The Company You Keep by Neil Gordon

When journalist Benjamin Schulberg discovers a link between lawyer Jim Grant and a notorious Vietnam-era fugitive, the world that Jim has carefully built for himself and his daughter collapses. Still wanted for murder in a bank robbery gone wrong in 1974, Jim is back on the run after decades living under a false identity, and he must travel deep into his past to clear his name and save his daughter. Set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, The Company You Keep is an intelligent thriller about political ideals, family loyalties, and the shadowy world of the radical anti-war group the Weather Underground.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
