Trial Run by Thomas Locke

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.

You can purchase the book at Amazon in paperback, hardcover and Kindle Edition.

My Thoughts
I really, really wanted to love this book. When I read the description it sounded so exciting and page turning I knew I wanted to read it, but sadly I was disappointed. I knew right away I was going to have trouble because I stayed confused from the start. The book changes points of view so many times in the first few chapters, I had absolutely no idea what was going on.
The description of the book was fascinating, the cover art interesting and the style of writing was decent, but the way the book flowed just didn't suit me. I am sure there are plenty of people who will read this book and enjoy it and I in no way want to discourage that, it just wasn't for me.
Revell blessed me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. A positive review was not required.
