"Thomas Kilbride is a schizophrenic, map-obsessed shut-in who believes he's in touch with both the CIA and former President Bill Clinton. He also believes he's seen a murder. His brother Ray, in town for their father's funeral and to decide what's to be done with Thomas, reluctantly agrees to investigate. His amateur efforts expose them both to some truly dangerous people who want nothing more than to hide all evidence of their activities. Sympathetic characters and a gripping, wildly twisting plot characterise this fast-paced suspense story; for a similar experience with another doubt-defying individual, try Chris Ewan's Safe House."

Another great ride with Linwood Barclay - twist after twist, right to the last page. Also poignant on the challenges of caring for a fragile sibling once your parents are gone and there's no one else to look after someone who will never be able to live independently.

Excellent. Just when you think you have it figured out you find out your wrong. Keeps you going to the very last page.

I happened upon Linwood Barclay one day and have remained forever grateful. I have read all of his books. I absolutely love how Barclay weaves pieces of his own life's experiences into all his novels~even if it's just a physical setting. My only complaint: there are no new novels for me to read. I live in hope! I recommend that new readers start with Barclay's first novel and continue forward. There is a discernable thread that links them all together. Enjoy!!

Thomas believes he needs to memorize maps of all the cities of the world in the event of a massive electronic attack. He is busy 'walking' through New York City on Whirl360, a website modelled on Google Earth, when he sees what he thinks is a murder being committed. He is a schizophrenic and cannot leave his house so persuades his brother, Ray, to investigate. Very good story, very believable, nicely paced. Enjoyed it from beginning to end - definitely a page-turner.

Absolutely FANTASTIC read. As always, everytime you thought you knew what was happening, everything would get turned on its head. Right until the very end. Couldn't put it down.
