Trial Run by Thomas Locke

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, while three disparate people are drawn into the search for answers-- an adrenaline-amped thrill junkie, an Italian scientist working on remote-viewing technology, and a physics prodigy whose algorithms subvert computer encryption.

Will Reese's 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.

Davis Bunn writing as Thomas Locke delivers a thrilling psychological journey that will leave you turning the pages and grasping for solid ground.

My review:
   I had a little difficulty getting into this book. There were a lot of technical terms and it jumped around a lot between different people and settings, and that especially was hard to keep up with at the beginning of the book.

  Thomas Locke is a pseudonym for Davis Bunn, and his books never disappoint. Even though it took me a while to get into the book, it was an enjoyable and suspenseful read. The experiments in the book was something I wasn't familiar with, but it made for a fascinating read.

  Once I figured out who was who, I liked the characters and character development. It was an exciting read, I just wish it had been easier to catch on to who was who and to some of the technical terms.
