Trial Run {a review}

It’s late at night and I should probably be going to bed. But late at night is the time when I usually get to read and this book will definitely keep you up into the ‘wee sma’s’. Trial Run by Thomas Locke (aka Davis Bunn) is a sci-fi thriller with some quantum theory thrown in […]
