Double Vision follows Kate, a sculptor whose photojournalist husband is killed in Afghanistan, and Stephen, a journalist who, after covering September 11 with Kate's husband and then being betrayed by his wife, has determined to retire to a small town and write a book about violence. When the two meet, the coincidence of their lives, one of which involves Kate's disturbing new studio assistant, and sinister events force Stephen to act instinctively, violently, and to face painful revelations about himself.

She embraces Barker's prose, coaxes more meaning from it, and makes us understand it more fully." (AudioFile)
