Trial Run (Fault Lines, Book 1) by Thomas Locke

Book review disclosure.

Fault Lines, Book 1
Thriller / Suspense

Cutting-edge research requiring controversial experiments. Startling dreams delivering cryptic communication from the dreamer's future self. Ruthless rivals determined to control mind-bending new technology. When you're balancing on the edge of what's possible, trouble awaits, ready to push you into the abyss.

This daring psychological journey into the very nature of causation and consciousness will leave you turning the pages and grasping for solid ground--especially when it becomes clear just how much fact lies within the fiction.

Dr. Gabriella Speciale has assembled an international 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's mind-bending experiments aim to explode the boundaries of human consciousness--and annihilate the opposition in the process.

When a terrifying discovery and a string of failed tests threaten to dismantle both programs, the key to survival may reside in the mind of a gifted grad student whose unsettling dreams have thrust him into the center of a dangerous battle for control.

As the threads of perception and reality become tangled and time itself twists in unexpected directions, one warning remains clear: what you don't know can kill you.

My Thoughts

I'm going to admit right up front that I didn't understand the theories behind the quantum physics or the space-time continuum. But the story was so well crafted that it didn't matter. While this novel is science fictionesque it reads completely like a suspense/ thriller. The whys behind what the characters were experimenting with made little sense to me but I quickly became entangled in the overall plot.

Rather than be caught up in all of the experiments with the different characters I was drawn into their personal stories and all the swirling plots to undermine and take out the competitors. I really like Thomas Locke (and Davis Bunn)'s work and I really think this is my favorite novel yet. I'm not particularly fond of sci-fi type of books but this piece of literature seemed to move me beyond that. Yes there is plenty of science fiction going on but there is also mystery and intrigue and a bit of romance as well. I think it will appeal to a large audience.

Now let me tell you about the ending without telling you about the ending. By the time I reached the last page of the last chapter I was worn out. The story came to a nice conclusion. It had a bit of a cliff hanger but not a completely torturous one. The major dilemmas were solved and the characters were in situations that made sense. While the main themes were wrapped up there were things that made you wonder what was going to happen. And then I read the excerpt for book two . . . now that was torture! That little snippet gave just enough information to make me wish I could travel into the future and read the conclusion, just like the fictional characters in the book. How appropriate.
