"I only have eyes for you." Song lyrics

Ray Kilbride is a man you might meet anyplace. In this novel, he comes home for his father's funeral. Then he must decide what to do with his brother, Tom, who is schizophrenic and spends most of his time in front of this computer where he has a program that enables him to see what's going on in the streets of cities all over the world.

Tom tells his brother that he's seen what looks like a crime and wants Ray check it out. Knowing that Tom won't rest until he does so, Ray agrees. In this manner, the brothers become involved in a major conspiracy.

Elsewhere, Morris Sawchuck is running for governor of New York. Someone contacts his wife and demands a meeting.

Tom narrates his part of the story. His disbelief of the situation turns to extreme anxiety in a manner where the reader is drawn into the action. Reading that "I" did this or that, a number of times makes us feel that we are the "I" and taking part in the story.

Barclay is a talented story writer and his prose has a cinematic quality as we observe not only the action but the scene itself, whether it's an antique shop with old clocks lining the walls or in the backseat of a New York cab, telling the driver to hurry to save someone's life.

Everything comes together nicely in a satisfactory conclusion. I enjoyed the story and only have one recommendation...don't miss it!
