Review: Trust Your Eyes by Linwood Barclay

I usually do not give away my feelings for a book till the end of my post but I just have to say this one GRRREAT! I read this book in one sitting last night, all night….

“Trust Your Eyes” is a fast pace thriller that will keep a reader wondering till the very last page.  I have always been a fan of Barclay’s writing but this book may be his best yet.  I know for one thing, he has secured me as a fan that will be anxiously awaiting his next release.


Book Description: Thomas Kilbride is a map-obsessed schizophrenic so affected that he rarely leaves the self-imposed bastion of his bedroom. But with a computer program called, he travels the world while never so much as stepping out the door. He pours over and memorizes the streets of the world. He examines every address, as well as the people who are frozen in time on his computer screen.

Then he sees something that anyone else might have stumbled upon—but has not—in a street view of downtown New York City: an image in a window. An image that looks like a woman being murdered.

Thomas’s brother, Ray, takes care of him, cooking for him, dealing with the outside world on his behalf, and listening to his intricate and increasingly paranoid theories. When Thomas tells Ray what he has seen, Ray humors him with a half-hearted investigation. But Ray soon realizes he and his brother have stumbled onto a deadly conspiracy.

This book is available at the Bullitt County Public Library and Amazon. (Check your local book store or library for availability.)
