Eye Spy by Tahir Shah



This is the second book I’ve read from Tahir Shah, and he continues to satisfy his readers with his unusual out-of-the-box tales.

Be prepared to suspend reality with this dark comedy!

The main character is Doctor Amadeus Kaine, an eye surgeon.

While in Central Asia, treating the poor, he is given a small pie to eat.

Eating this pie causes things to happen. Miracles.

Not only is he healed physically, but his mental capacities and skills increase.

But there is a catch…

The pies are made with human eyes taken from convicts in the mines.

Amadeus Kaine is horrified to learn this information, but cannot help himself in wanting more of that delicious pie.

Even knowing this information, the reader will be unable to stop liking Dr. Kaine.

Be prepared for a unique and interesting ride!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I have one more book from him to review and I cannot wait to get to it. His work is always unique and enjoyable.
