Fast Paced, Action packed short story...
Charlie Hazard's life is packed full of action and then the mystery woman catches his eye. She asks Charlie to come on a thrill ride in which he doesn't know what's going on. He straps in for everything he is unsure of and finds out what he's getting in to.
This is a prequel to Trial Run by Thomas Locke, the pseudonym for Davis Bunn, who has many writing credits under his belt. Some of the books he has written include Lion of Babylon, Strait of Hormuz, and Rare Earth (all as Davis Bunn). Under Thomas Locke he has written The Delta Factor, and The Delta Network.
I would rate this short story at 5 stars out of 5 since not all science fiction is created equal, but I also feel it is an honest assessment of the story as a whole.
I downloaded a kindle copy to my tablet and read it that way.
Explosive. Riveting. Edge of your seat thrill-ride (Rated 5 Stars)
Imagine a world where anything you do in a precognitive state (future or past events happen in a dream state) can and does literally happen. For Trent it's a very real problem. Shane Shearer is an undergrad working on her MBA. Both Trent and Shane soon realize they're in way over their heads. Two shadow organizations fight one another to find solutions to their "problems." One organization seeks Trent to solve its problems, the other wants to help those who are in comas come out of them. "What you don't know can kill you."
This is one of many of Thomas Locke's (a pseudonym of Davis Bunn) books. Mostly built on physics concepts, with a character (Trent) who has waking precognitive dreams, the book is a non-stop thrill ride. While the main thrust of the book is
science fiction, it is also suspenseful and a thriller. It has received five stars from myself as I found the book hard to put down once I was into the book.
I didn't have a huge problem with the plot or characters, setting or the its themes. If anything I found most of the characters like-able, with a smattering of bad guys. Overall, I truly liked this book.
