John McAfee's flight through Belize, into Guatemala, and eventually to the US after being sought for questioning in the murder of his neighbor was only the latest dramatic episode in the former software entrepreneur's life. Joshua Davis of Wired spent months investigating McAfee before his attempted arrest, and he's now published an in-depth account of both his early life and his accelerating slide into fear of enemies both real and imagined. "You thought you were creating your reality," McAfee says at one point, after apparently playing a game of Russian roulette with Davis. "You were not. I was."
