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 Whirl360.com, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Finalist for the Arthur Ellis Award – Best Novel “This standalone thriller, written in the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window , is a thoughtful examination of privacy issues surrounding the web.... Barclay gives us not only a riveting read but a poignant story about family ties.” — The Chronicle Herald (Halifax)  “Linwood Barclay has taken a chance in Trust Your Eyes , his 11th novel, and it pays off. This is, by far, his best yet. . . . Trust Your Eyes is a terrific thriller . . . . [The] book is near perfect.” —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail “In this mash-up of “Rear Window,” “Rain Man,” and “Femme Nikita,” a schizophrenic man who spends his waking hours roaming Google Maps witnesses a murder. A suspenseful, pulse-pounding thriller leavened by a trio of quirky, unlikely heroes and a lovely romance. Talk about tour de force plotting, even the most minor details pay off with shoes dropping right up to the final page.” —The Boston Globe “Piling twists like pieces in a game of Jenga, Trust Your Eyes is a breakneck tour of sex-for-pay political scandals, Olympic medal winners reinventing themselves as killers-for-hire, and having every keystroke logged by those who have no business doing so.” — National Post “The surprise plot twists in Trust Your Eyes fall into the following categories and numbers: plot twists the reader can see coming
