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 cross–hairs.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Some days, all you really want is for someone to tell you a wicked-good story. Linwood Barclay answers the reader’s perpetual prayer with Trust Your Eyes, an offbeat thriller about a schizophrenic savant who witnesses a murder but is so clearly nuts that no one will take him seriously.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Linwood Barclay’s delightful new novel…is expertly plotted, and he moves easily between sweetly comic scenes and entirely sinister ones…[A] nice balancing act…Trust Your Eyes is superior entertainment.”

    Washington Post

  • “The genius of Barclay’s intricately convoluted design becomes increasingly apparent…engaging main characters grab your heart even as the plot makes it stop.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • A 2013 Barry Award Nominee for Best Novel

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana Schie | 2/15/2014

    " this was a great story - did not see the ending coming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 2/9/2014

    " I am a huge fan of Linwood Barclay, and think he may well be the best thriller writer in the genre. He has a masterful ability to weave multiple (and I do mean "multiple") story lines into a page-turning narrative without confusing the reader or complicating the plot. This one is interesting. Not a whole lot happens early; it's more about the relationship between two brothers. But stick with it. The story eventually takes off, the payoff is great, and the last page will knock you sideways. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelley Lawrence | 1/21/2014

    " Very twisty, intriguing tale. Easy to read and follow along. Great ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda Schroeder-baatz | 12/21/2013

    " very riveting. Kept me interested all the way through. Had to finish just to see the ending that had a twist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey Cameron | 11/29/2013

    " Not as good as some of the other Linwood Barclay I've read bit slow at the beginning but still a goo read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie | 11/24/2013

    " Wow, wow, wow !!! This is one of my favorite books and very well done. I loved it, so many twists and turns. Absolutely terrific. I highly recommend this "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/15/2013

    " Good but slow to get going...much better at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Milena Woodiwiss | 11/11/2013

    " This was a great book to read after Sarah's Key. Very entertaining and light. I love the way Linwood Barclay takes you to the end of the book, you think it's over and then - WHAM - he hits you with a twist in the last few pages. An easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anna | 9/11/2013

    " Although I am a Barclay fan, I was disappointed with this one. Too many crazy plotlines, and it could have been edited down at least 100 pages. I hung on until the end, but a lot of skimming through to get to the end. I did like the characters of the brothers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 6/11/2013

    " I raced through this book, loved it. Behind the mystery are several back stories, a little romance, some brotherly love, the ways people can be different and still relate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C Dodgson | 5/24/2013

    " There were so many plot lines in this book that it bordered on the ridiculous. This is the first book I have. Read by this author and probably the last. Lots of others reviewed this book favorably on Amazon so I based my decision on that. It might have worked with about a 100 fewer pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 5/13/2013

    " Good book but not his best one "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne Ritchie | 5/4/2013

    " Amazing thriller!!! Couldn't put it down!! Suspense right up to the end. Will be suggesting this to friends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynette Barfield | 12/29/2012

    " So many reviews have been written about this book that I don't feel that I can really add anything to the details or the plot so I will simply add my opinion of the book. I can only say that it is absolutely mesmerising!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 10/11/2012

    " Barclay always has great main characters who are just regular guys in extraordinary circumstances. And, there are always moments of humor in addition to great suspense plots. "
