Publisher's Summary

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 pores 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. And now they are in the crosshairs.

A Map-Obsessed Schizophrenic Trusts His Eyes

I really enjoyed and loved this story. Very well written and narrated. This is the most interesting and attention-holding novel that I've listen to in a very very long time. If you like mysteries/thrillers which you don't' have to think too much and is easy to follow , then I would highly recommend this one.

I've read two of Linwood Barclay's other books and I love the way his stories hit the ground running and hooks the listener into the story right from the very beginning. The Publisher's Summary for this one is very good, but the complexity of the story cannot be adequately summarized without giving too much away. There are good plot twists right up to the very last chapter. The whole multifaceted story is managed very well by author Linwood Barclay, as he moves effortlessly from one part of the storyline to another, and he dovetails the various interrelated parts into a whole with a "didn't see it coming" ending.

I loved, loved, loved this one. My next listen has a huge mountain to climb in order to top this one. The two narrators were good. It was not overly performed in any way, just enough to add to the enjoyment.

Very highly recommend.....

Trust Your Eyes is a great book -- trust me!

STORY (mystery) - I really loved this book. Thomas, a schizophrenic who spends his time memorizing maps on an ap called World360, thinks he sees the frozen image of a woman being suffocated in the window of a New York hi-rise. He and his brother, Ray, investigate. There's so much that happens in this story and so many unexpected surprises that I can't possibly give it justice in this review. Aside from the image of the woman with the plastic bag over her head, there are a couple other mysteries which are equally exciting as they unravel. The plot is complicated but not hard to follow, so you don't have to wear a thinking cap to enjoy it. Also, the author manages to inject a bit of humor occasionally. Great stuff!

PERFORMANCE - Good job, but I reserve five stars for stellar multi-voice performances. This reader does a great old woman's voice.

OVERALL - Highly recommended for all mature listeners. There's some profanity and references to sexual acts and lesbianism, though there are no actual sex "scenes" in the book. There is also occasional violence.
