Trust Your Eyes

Trust Your Eyes

Linwood Barclay

Ever wonder what kind of trouble those Internet mapping sites can cause?

You don’t have to wonder. There are websites a-plenty devoted to the things spotted on such sites. Some are R-rated, so parents should be aware. Some are laugh-out-loud funny, but all are pictures that those travelling cameras have caught. You have been warned. Behave.

Linwood Barclay takes advantage of this fairly new trend in “Trust Your Eyes.” A camera for the fictitious “Whirl360” site spots a crime in progress. It’s an image of a woman being strangled in an upstairs New York City apartment.

The image goes “live” on the site and does not attract notice.

That is until Thomas Kilbride, a mentally ill man spots the horrifying shot. His efforts to convince his brother that he HAS seen something has effects for him, his brother and others.

Barclay writes a good thriller. This one has me reading and going to the local library to find other Barclay books.

Beware of plot twists. They are all honest (they are foreshadowed) but I defy you to see them coming!
