Where does madness leave off and reality begin?
I See You …
They follow him home from work. They monitor his e-mails. They may even be reading his mind.
I Spy …
Charlie Fields, a young father in a dead-end secretarial job in Washington, DC, has uncovered a conspiracy of historic proportions. A family friend, Philip Duke, heads a secret organization bent on controlling the world—or so it seems. Is Charlie crazy, as his wife claims? Or is Duke’s “Gestapo” now stalking them?
Do You See What I See? …
The neighbors beat on his walls at night, chanting his name. Spy cameras watch his every move. And now he’s experiencing strange memory gaps.
Time runs out as Charlie learns the Gestapo is experimenting on his small children. Worse, his wife is helping them.
They’re everywhere, watching him…studying him. It’s time to take action—and if he has to abduct his own kids to save them, then so be it.

“With Eyes Everywhere, Matthew Warner comes into his own as a novelist; this remarkable portrayal of one man’s rapid and horrifying psychological disintegration is by turns funny, terrifying, hallucinatory, poignant, and supremely chilling. From first page to last, this novel grabbed me by the throat and didn’t let go, barreling its way toward one of the most powerful final images I’ve read in years. This is the type of novel that puts writers on the map, and deservedly so. A stunner.”
—Gary Braunbeck, author of In Silent Graves
