    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.

    Paul Davis forgets things - he gets confused, he has sudden panic attacks. But he wasn't always like this. Eight months ago, Paul found two dead bodies in the back of a coworker's car. He was attacked, left for dead, and has been slowly recovering ever since. His wife tries her best but fears the worst.... Therapy helps during the days, but at night he hears things - impossible things - that no one else can. That nobody else believes. Either he's losing his mind - or someone wants him to think he is. Just because he's paranoid doesn't mean it's not happening....

    Journaliste pour une dépêche locale, David Harwood pensait avoir eu une bonne idée pour le week-end : quoi de mieux, en effet, qu'une journée dans un parc d'attractions avec leur fils de quatre ans, Ethan, pour changer les idées dépressives de son épouse Jan ? Or, à peine sont-ils arrivés que Jan se volatilise. David fait bientôt figure de suspect numéro 1 aux yeux de la police car rien ne semble confirmer l'état dépressif de Jan, que lui seul semble connaître, ni même que la jeune femme était bien avec lui au parc d'attractions.
