Publisher's Summary

A schizophrenic man spends his days and nights on a website called Whirl360, believing he's employed by the CIA to store the details of every town and city in the world in his head. Then one day, he sees something that shouldn't be there: a woman being murdered behind a window on a New York street. Suddenly Thomas has more to deal with than just his delusions, as he gets drawn into a deadly conspiracy.

Read by Rick Holmes and Ken Marks.

"...tell me what you think it means..."

Really enjoyed this read - great performances; the characterizations of brothers Ray and Thomas were superb. Loved the reference to the Grace Kelly line from Rear Window - "...tell me what you saw ,Thomas, and what you think it means...."

Much more than just a thriller!

Wow! What a satisfying read. I loved this book on so many levels. The detailed character portrayal of Thomas and his brother, Ray were intrinsic to the plot with 'savant' Thomas spending virtually every waking hour on Whirl360 (a program like Google Earth) where he can roam the street of the world memorising every detail without ever leaving his bedroom. It's only when he sees something in the window of a building on the program that the two brothers start a thrilling ride that nearly leads to their deaths. Trust your eyes is about compassion and caring but the plot is thrilling nonetheless. The narrator is perfect and I can't recommend this book more highly.

A little disappointing

A little disappointing. I love Linwood Barclay and have listened to and read everything he has written, so he is definitely one of my all time favorite authors. It's not a bad book, but this one falls a little short by his usual very high standards. Usually with a new Linwood Book/Audio, my life gets put on hold until I have got through the whole book, just wanting to know what is going to happen next. I really find myself getting pulled into the middle of the story.



With this one, the plot didn't snowball and gather the usual momentum. I found myself having to keep replaying sections when I picked up listening to remind me of where I was in the story and what was happening. Some of the scenes were too long and drawn out and it took some listening and replaying to get past them and I found the ending a bit of a disappointment.



The concept and idea is very good and there are parts that do really get going, but momentum is lost as that particular plot stops and your attention is turned to something else in the next chapter and everything slows down, and occasionally I got lost...that is a criticism I have of another well known thriller writer, but that isn't something I have attributed to Linwood Barclay before.



The readers were fine, so no problems there and I wouldn't say don't get this book, especially for seasoned Linwood Barclay fans and those who like a good thriller. I don't feel I have wasted my time, it has been entertaining and enjoyable. However the problem for Mr Barclay is that he has set the bar si very high with his previous books and because of that my expectations are high, so I can't help feel disappointed when it doesn't quite hit the mark.

Excellent thriller!

Any additional comments?

This is a cracking thriller. Very well written and not formulaic. Some of the turns are unexpected, some you can see coming, but only because the author takes you there so well. The characters are well drawn and I really loved (and at times worried for) Thomas. A very satisfying read/listen.

Not bad!

I liked the adventure, but I felt the story was of too much danger and insecurity, particularly with someone, who had schizophrenia. But in fairness, it's worth listening to.

Brilliant Barclay again

Any additional comments?

I listen to my books in the car and had problems getting out of the car a few times, found myself listening to just a bit more before getting out of the car.
Very strong ending to the book, twists and turns !

Not at all disappointing

A bit slow to start but well worth the wait. Well written and nail-biting action - only criticism is that it ends in a rush!
