    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.

As always, Zack fears the worst. And this time his paranoid worldview is dead on. While the locals attribute the death to a bear attack, Zack suspects something far more ominous - a predator whose weapons include arson, assault and enough wacko beliefs to fuel a dozen hate groups.
