This is not your typical suspense / thriller novel.  Because Thomas Locke is not your typical novelist.  You may find yourself (as I did) putting the book down and walking away from it for a few days.  But rest assured – you’ll be back.

You may find yourself (as I did) starting the book over.  That’s ok, too.  Quite frankly, there really is a major “learning curve” involved, if you are not quite up to speed with the space – time continuum, particle physics and / or quantum computing.

Which merely serves to demonstrate how truly diverse Thomas Locke (you may know him as Davis Bunn) really is. 

There is a line from THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN by Michael Crichton, describing one of the characters:  “He knows everything, and is fascinated by the rest.”  When I think of Thomas Locke, that’s the statement that comes to mind.

Perhaps you can recall the “space race” of the late 1950’s, when everyone with the necessary money and technology competed to “win” the edge, gain the advantage, and reap the rewards that went along with it.

In TRIAL RUN, the race continues.  Only this time, it’s all in your mind.

Or is it?

Dr. Gabriella Speciale has assembled a team of elite scientists with one goal in mind – to create, and control, out-of-body experiences that transcend the limits of time and space. 

Reese Clawson is looking to take the same science and harness it for military use. 

Trent Major is a gifted grad student whose unsettling dreams have placed him right in the middle.

In the end, one warning remains clear:  what you don’t know CAN kill you!

With the two considerations firmly in mind, one should be prepared for the ride of the century in Thomas Locke’s TRIAL RUN!

5 stars for an edge-of-your-seat thriller from Thomas Locke
