Horror novelist Stephen King has some nice things to say about Linwood Barclay’s newest release, Trust Your Eyes. King says the book is Barclay’s best so far, calling it “a tale Hitchcock would have loved” and “great entertainment from a suspense master.” Trust Your Eyes, which involves politics and cyber-terrorism, had a very simple beginning. ''Friends of ours down the street,'' Barclay says via press materials, ''went onto Google Street View to see whether their house was visible, [and] there, looking out the window, for the entire world to see, was their dog Winston, no doubt waiting for his family to come home. And I thought, that’s cute, but what if it were something very different than a dog. What if what had been captured was a murder — something that didn’t at first glance look like one, but upon closer examination was?'' Barclay signs and discusses Trust Your Eyes today.
