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
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.
