Sue635 Stars Out Of 5TRIAL RUN a great thinking man's thrillerAugust 5, 2015Sue63Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0If you're into thrillers and you want something that also makes you think, check out this new novel by Thomas Locke. I received an early free copy for review from Revell Publishing. I'm not sure where to start - perhaps the fact that I read the book twice will give you a good idea of how much I liked it. From the world of dreams to quantum physics - interesting, complex characters - a plot that only reveals itself bit by bit and keeps you trying to figure it all out. The scientific and technical aspects of the story must've taken an immense amount of research. And everything is so cinematographic.... you can see it all unfolding in your brain as race along with the characters, on both sides of the story. The 'villains' are just barely separated from the 'good guys.' You get to know them all equally - and as the first in what appears to be a new series for Locke, you know you'll get to know them even better as their stories evolve and intertwine. I can't wait for the next novel. Suffice it to say, if you like a good suspense novel, pick this one up as soon as you can get your hands on it. And be prepared to not set it down again until you've finished it!
chevymom1 Stars Out Of 5Trial RunJanuary 16, 2019chevymomI have always loved Davis Bunn books but I only got 15 pages into this book before I quit reading. I do the ordering for our church library and this book can't be put in a church library. I am stuck with 3 books thst I can't use. I have put a lot of trust in CBD for a great number of years and now I am greatly disappointed

Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Complicated Storyline. Slow To Start. Well Worth The Time.October 19, 2016Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Trial Run is the first book of the Fault Lines series by Thomas Locke (aka Davis Bunn). This book is about two differentprograms competing to achieve the ability to have safe andcontrolled "transits" or "ascents" - out of body experiences. As both programs experience unforeseen complications, it becomes a tighter competition and a race to save the lives of their team members.
This book is very complex right off the bat, introducing you to several key players within the first few chapters, jumping around a lot, and expecting you to somehow keep track of who everyone is and where each game plan is headed. This book is definitely not for those that have a hard time keeping everything straight when stories get complicated.
I had a hard time keeping an interest for the firstthird of the book, but kept reading because I really like Locke's writing style. The secondthird of the book was a smoother ride, but still not really getting to the point fast enough for my taste. The lastthird of the book, I couldn't set it down, and was caught off guard by the abrupt ending. I want to know the rest of the story. Looks like I'm headed off to order book number 2 soon. 4/5 stars.
