Joe then visits the wife of the man who had died and she tells him that she believes that he was having an affair after the police returned a picnic basket for two that was found in his car, along with an unknown woman's scarf. The balloon eventually landed safely, the boy unscathed. As the balloon rises higher and higher, four men let go one by one, tumbling safely to the ground.

Joe Rose, a scientific journalist, is about to enjoy a reunion picnic with his girlfriend Clarissa when he witnesses an accident involving a hot-air balloon; he and a small group of strangers rush to help, but the incident results in a man's death. Jed became obsessed with his unrequited love for already guilt-stricken Joe, and started stalking and threatening him.

Although Joe approaches the world through rationality and Clarissa approaches it through emotion, they are happy together and have a stable, comfortable world. Joe thinks of ethical questions in an objective, logical way. He was on the path to be an academic scientist when he got derailed by a failed patent application, leaving too large of a hole in his resume.
But how much is Joe the cause and how much the victim of the unfolding drama? The couple explain that John Logan had spotted them on the road after their car broke down and offered them a ride.

That will introduce you to his love of capricious violence and Definitely start with Atonement. McEwan weaves sanity and insanity so tightly together that, at times, the reader can't tell them apart.
