Linwood Barclay has come up with another barnstorming thriller focussing on Thomas Kilbride, a schizophrenic and lover of detail in the form of map-reading and memorising them. His sympathetic brother, Ray, understands Thomas's predicament. Using an advanced Google-type internet programme (whirl360), Thomas can negotiate the plans and layout of cities still in his armchair. His belief he is acting as a CIA agent enforces his delusion. Real or not? He is involved with 'seeing' murder and his involvement with characters, particularly brother Ray, who come and go add to the appeal of this novel. The pace of the action keeps the reader in a state of insecurity. That is, just when you feel you understand the situation, Barclay puts in a thumper of a change that disorients for a while until you catch up, and then another turner hits you.
Apart from the mental health issues, sensitively handled by the author, there is an influx of conspiracy allied to political intrigue. I thought his previous novel, 'Accident', was a pinnacle, but Linwood Barclay continues to scale new heights. Trust your eyes is right on the button. Highly charged and recommended.
