     “Trust Your Eyes”: Mad Men 30 October, 2013 On
    Domestic horror-specialist Barclay’s novel is a techie avtaar of the plot, self-admittedly, inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 film “Rear Window.”
    Linwood has said that he has used a line from the film, almost word to word in the book, as homage, but I have failed to find it, so far.
    The prologue starts in present time, when a mentally-challenged Thomas, with an uncanny ability for memorising maps, views what he thinks is a crime on a virtual street-viewing software.
    (The original title of the book “360” was changed so that people would not confuse it with X-Box)
    The main story starts two weeks back with Thomas’s brother, Ray, an illustrator, whose father has died from an accident.
    (Living in India, we find eleven people attending the funeral a culture shock, even in fiction.)
    The story rewinds, again, earlier to a seemingly unconnected story of a financially strapped Allison who naively tries to use her not-so-straight affair with a casual partner to earn some money in a not-so-straight manner.
    There are two killings that go horribly wrong (the firsts of many) leading to a sequence of incidents involving Ray and Thomas.
    To add to Ray’s woes, who cannot cope up with his schizophrenic brother: he comes across a worrying browsing history in his dad’s lap-top.
    After Linwood lulls you into false sense of security by explaining the mystery/murders in the last chapters; he hits back, harder, with a disturbing twist on the last page.
    The story is full of odd characters: all connected to the main story.
    A failed-Olympian turning to a life of crime.
    A rare politician: one with a conscience; a gold digger (straying) wife; a campaign manager who would go to any lengths to further his employer’s career; an ex-policeman whose specialty is removing obstacles; Ray’s former girlfriend and journalist; a software engineer and his trophy wife.
    Neighbors, who turn physically abusive; a loyal family lawyer; a friendly policeman; FBI.
    When the attackers catch up with the brothers with lethal intentions, Linwood (a previous humour columnist) makes them talk their way out to buy some much needed time, the episode laced with hilarity and defuses a grim situation in a comic manner.
    While the story is gripping with a pat ending it relies too much on coincidences like our own Bollywood’s stories.
    I mean, how can a carefully planned murder go wrong, twice?
    What are the chances of a crime being recorded on street view software while it is taking place?
    How many employees lie to their employers only to be caught red handed in the next few minutes?
    Far-fetched or not: it’s still a novel that prompted Stephen King to call it “The Best Barclay” so far.
    A trailer for the novel is available on the net. (Yeah, you read correct: A trailer)
    Movie rights have been snapped up by Warner Brothers.
