From Inside Flap:
Dr. Gabriella Speciale has assembled an international team of elite scientists with one goal in mind–to create and control out-of-body experiences that transcend the limits of time and space. Reese Clawson’s mind-bending experiments aim to explode the boundaries of human consciousness–and annihilate the opposition in the process.
When a terrifying discovery and a string of failed tests threaten to dismantle both programs, the key to survival may reside in the mind of a gifted grad student whose unsettling dreams have thrust him into the center of a dangerous battle for control. As the threads of perception and reality become tangled and time itself twists in unexpected directions, one warning remains clear: what you don’t know can kill you.
From Back cover:
“Somewhere between spectacular and astonishingly compelling. After I finished, I could not let it go.”–Phyllis Tickle, former senior editor, Publishers Weekly
Cutting-edge research requiring controversial experiments. Startling dreams delivering cryptic communication from the dreamer’s future self. Ruthless rivals determined to control mind-bending new technology. When you’re balancing on the edge of what’s possible, trouble awaits, ready to push you into the abyss.
This daring psychological journey into the very nature of causation and consciousness will leave you turning the pages and grasping for solid ground–especially when it becomes clear just how much fact lies within the fiction.
“Truly remarkable. Extremely vivid and very well crafted. A wonderful read.”–Keith Hazard, Acting Deputy Director (ret), Central Intelligence Agency

This book is an example of when an Author thinks “what if” and then writes those ideas down. Trial Run is not a book I would have normally picked but, the front cover look interesting. And I’m really not a person to judge a book by its cover but, sometimes that just can’t be helped. This book is not going to appeal to everyone but, if you’re one of those that it does appeal to then this is definitely the book for you. I struggled in the beginning with all of the information that was thrown all at once causing it to be a little hard to follow. There are a lot of technological explanations that aren’t well explained for the average reader. Don’t let this stop you from reading the book because once you get past all that, it’s an amazing read. So, I definitely encourage those of you that this book appeals to grab a copy and find a comfy reading spot.
