Overview

SEEN FROM A DISTANCE is the story of Cusack, an Iraq war veteran now working for a private security firm.
Alienated from his past and haunted by it, too, he lives determinedly in the here and now. His assignment is surveillance of an elderly professor, W.S. Tyler, whose dead son-in-law had ties to a shadowy Senegalese rebel army, accused by the U.S. government of being a terrorist organization.
Cusack's preferred method of surveillance - the detached technology of camera and microphone is abruptly abandoned in favor of a role which puts him in
Tyler's classroom and soon thereafter in a complicated relationship with his family. Cusack's boss, increasingly obsessed with Tyler, drags Cusack into his hidden agenda where deadly unforeseen events occur in rapid succession and the situation spins rapidly out of control. In the end, Cusack is confronted with choices that will change his future as radically as his earlier choices fixed his past.
Seen From A Distance can be read as a character study,
or a dramatic adventure or considered for its parallels to political events of the recent past. At every level,
it is a terrific read.
