Junior financial analyst Lena Fennan loves managing risk and making money. Yet when she gets a mysterious invitation to take a leap into the unknown, she does not hesitate. Soon a series of events takes her to the brink of destruction. But Lena refuses to give in, entranced by glimpses of a future that redefine everything.
Reese Clawson emerges from prison gripped by the slow burn of revenge. She will track everyone who hand a hand in destroying her--and take them out. First on the list is Charlie Hazard.
As time and space become jumbled, Lena and Reese are pulled into a collision course that could alter the parameters of human consciousness.

Global Finance is not one of my strong points; in fact, I'm not into numbers at all. However, Flash Point by Thomas Locke, intrigued me from the very start. I'm a fan of women who stand up for what they believe in, and Lena Fennan is one of those women. When she finds an anomaly in the bank's portfolio, even though she is a junior analyst, she couldn' leave the matter alone. She hooks up with an ethical attorney, Don Metzer, and they're off to unravel one of the most nefarious schemes the world has seen to date.
In today's technology-savvy world, transactions happen instantaneously. One slip, one wrong number, one bad set of partners, and the global finance system could come tumbling down. Theoretical, perhaps. Thomas Locke paints a very realistic picture of what could happen if safeguards are not tightly in place.
Enter Charlie Hazard and company, introduced in Trial Run. Not only have the financial systems been overtaken by technology, so has the human brain. A methodology for "walking in the shadow world" has been discovered and the good and bad guys battle it out there as well. This area intrigues me as well. What would happen if you got caught in the shadow world while out of your body?
How Lena and Charlie meet and join forces is worth the read. I'm beginning to hate Thomas Locke; he makes me think too much and draws me into his stories until I'm hooked and can't put the book down. You will be too. Four star--the book ended too soon!
Thomas Locke is the pseudonym for Davis Bunn, Oxford writer in residence and prolific author--more than seven million copies of his books have been sold worldwide, and he's been translated into twenty languages. He divides his time between Oxford and Florida, teaches at write's conferences, and "holds a lifelong passion for speculative stories."
Revell, a Division of Baker Books, provided me a copy of Flash Point, although I was in no way obligated to write a favorable review.
Shelly1 Stars Out Of 5A book loverDecember 31, 2016ShellyQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This was an absolutely horrible book. I've always like Davis Bunn so was excited to find this book. It makes NO sense. I bought it so felt like I should continue to read it also with hopes it'd start to make sense and/or get better. Incredibly disappointing! Also, considering he's supposed to be a christian author I read nothing in it that would have told me that. It honestly was more like hocus pocus, middle eastern, wacko junk. Save yourself the money and don't bother with this book.
kathaeFront Royal, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fast-paced thrillerNovember 12, 2016kathaeFront Royal, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This second book in the Fault Lines series was a great continuation of the story begun in Trial Run. It added a very engrossing banking and finance aspect on top of the expanded science and technology scenario. I was actually able to follow the back and forth action from Reese and her team to Lena and her team more easily in this book than I did in the first one. Characters from the first book remained true to their selves, and new characters were well-drawn. The pacing moved the book forward to an ending that made me long for the next book now.
As always, this book by Thomas Locke will keep you turning pages and appreciating the details that give credence to the stories he writes. Here is my favorite quote from this book:
"Roger softly interrupted, 'You made a thousand percent profit? In two weeks?'"
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own.

This book is incredibly dynamic. The characters - well you have clear good ones and clear bad ones no in between. You are amazed that this all comes out of one mans mind - it is mind bending, shocking, nonconventional, and I guarantee you, you wont feel happy-go-lucky when you are done, you feel a little upset when it is over, because it is over - then you find out there is another one on the way and you are not so upset - good news for those who don't know - there is a book prior to this one - to this one - so get that one first - this is a story about is basically a fight between good and evil - repayment for what has happened in the past. Also it is about using science for mind control/out of body experience (new ageism). This book starts where Trial Run ends, but it can also stand alone - and it is well worth it - either way - AWESOME - Please do yourself a favor - Go Buy. I received a copy of this book to read and give and honest review
