About the Book:

Reese Clawson's work is mind-bending--literally. Her company specializes in global data analysis for an elite group of industry executives, and now a lucrative government contract is moving her into the realm of cutting-edge intelligence gathering. She is determined to crack the limits of consciousness--and in doing so, the boundaries of secrets and lies. But her experiment crashes as test subjects slide into a coma-like state. Reese is left scrambling to maintain control, drawing three disparate people into the search for answers--an adrenaline-amped thrill junkie with altered brain chemistry, an Italian scientist working on remote-viewing technology, and a math prodigy whose algorithms subvert 
computer encryption.

Will this piecemeal team prevail when a government operative is sent to investigate? As the threads of perception and reality become tangled and even time itself twists in unexpected directions, one warning remains clear: what you don't know can kill you.

With a concept so daring and writing so gripping, readers will swiftly fall under the spell of Thomas Locke's endlessly creative mind. This thrilling psychological journey into the very nature of causation and consciousness will leave them turning the pages and grasping for solid ground.

My Thoughts:

STEM geeks, rejoice!  Thomas Locke (aka Davis Bunn) has crafted a unique and mind-bending tale of physics, time travel, and (my favorite)...murder.  What happens when two teams of elite brainiacs and military soldiers compete to extend the boundaries of time and space?

Reece Clawson leads a team working a clandestine op that's off the books and off the radar.  Dr. Gabriella Speciale has her own off-the-grid team working on the same research project.  In fact, we have corporate espionage, black ops, murder-for-hire, and a sprinkle of romance for fun.

The science is mind-bending.  Truly mind-bending.  Honestly, I took Physics in college, but this was so far out of my element.  Some chapters made my brain hurt.  Literally.  But hanging in was worth it in the end.  Imagine being able to know things about the future...or the past...or anywhere else.

How much chaos would ensue?  LOTS!  I enjoyed my time with "Trial Run", and I think you will as well.  I'm calling this "One to Watch", as there are at least two books in the "Fault Lines" series--maybe three.  The writing is intense...but the science (and math) will blow your mind.

I found my copy at my local Christian bookstore, and you can find "Trial Run" wherever you discover your favorite reads.
