TRUST YOUR EYES, Linwood Barclay
When Ray Kilbride's father dies, he moves back home to settle the estate and make arrangements for his brother, Thomas. Thomas has not left the house, except for doctor visits, for many years. He spends his days mapping, through a computer system, every street in the world. He believes that this knowledge will save the world after the coming apocalypse. When brother Ray, an illustrator, agrees to follow up on an image that has upset Thomas, the two run afoul of a dangerous circle of people. Ray, with the help of Thomas, must settle both this issue and determine exactly how their father died and what is the secret from Thomas's past that perhaps precipitated his agoraphobia.
TRUST YOUR EYES is a technological hat tip to REAR WINDOW. Very enjoyable.
