Set during the short, dark days of a Michigan winter in the mid-'90s, the story takes us into the mind of a psychoanalyst, Dr. Ivan Weiss, as he grapples with a terrifying series of crises. After being a victim of rape in New York City, Weiss' adult daughter returns home to Ann Arbor to start over, only to become a victim of another horrific experience.
Weiss' wife disappears, leaving only an enigmatic note, reviving his old paranoid preoccupations about her fidelity. Unable now to find his wife and his daughter, Weiss' world totally flies apart.
Pushed to the brink, he realizes that he must use his powers of psychoanalytic insight in extraordinary ways to try to rescue those he loves.
The story ranges from Weiss' psychoanalytic consulting room in Ann Arbor to an orphanage in the south of France, to the icy ledge of a bell tower in a snowstorm, to a harrowing police chase in the devastated streets of downtown Detroit. It is about the present and secrets from the past. It is a gripping thriller and a deeply human drama.
The Mind's Eye has the initial appearance of a compelling mystery story, but it is really about deep human issues. It is a powerful experience you will not forget.
