Just as she's on the verge of a life-transforming windfall, a mysterious invitation draws her into a series of events that threatens to crush her.

Reese Clawson emerges from prison gripped by the slow burn of revenge. She aims to track down everyone who had a hand in destroying her--and take them out. First on the list is Charlie Hazard, who will be snared by their shared secret.
As events and places become tangled, Lena and Reese are pulled into a collision course that could redefine everything--even the limits of human possibilities.

Praise for Trial Run
"This book is a true psychological thriller that cannot be put down . . . An awesome jaunt into a world that may just be closer to reality than we think."--Suspense Magazine
"Thomas Locke masterfully keeps the suspense level taut throughout the book. It is a rare author who can create such dramatic tension in a storyline that contains areas of technical discussion, like quantum computing, while still maintaining a character-driven plot. A fast-paced, constantly unfolding mystery with well-developed characters, Trial Run promises to begin a strong new series that manages to transcend the bounds of science fiction writing."--Manhattan Book Review
"High tech mixed with intelligence gathering, combined with a fast-paced story and evocative writing. Trial Run grabs readers from the first page. Locke weaves words to create masterfully evocative descriptions, scenes, and characters. The science is presented in a Crichton-esque manner, compelling readers to believe that not only can it be true for some future date, but it is probably being used in some secret laboratory right now. Trial Run will make a great last-of-summer read. Once you start, you won't want to put it down."--BuddyHollywood.com
"Trial Run is wonderfully told: a swift, engaging story that shows a large understanding of the human condition, our essential frailty, our drivenness, our need for connection. As three stories collide, Locke brings into play some key questions that face each of us as human beings: Do we know what is really going on? If we don't, can it destroy us? This is artful writing, full of suspense."--Jay Parini, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Station
"A truly remarkable work. The interweaving of three stories is faultless, the tension explosive. The story involving the intelligence community and military is extremely vivid and very well crafted. A wonderful read."--Keith Hazard, deputy director, Central Intelligence Agency
