Book review: Flash Point by Thomas Locke




About the book:

What if the limits of time and space were breached?

Lena Fennan is a low-level financial analyst with a high-powered conviction. 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. But captivated by a glimpse into a breathtaking future, Lena refuses to give in.

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.

Flash Point released August 2, 2016, from Revell. #flashpoint

My review:

This second book in the Fault Lines series was a great continuation of the story begun in Trial Run.  It added a very engrossing banking and finance aspect on top of the expanded science and technology scenario.  I was actually able to follow the back and forth action from Reese and her team to Lena and her team more easily in this book than I did in the first one.  Characters from the first book remained true to their selves, and new characters were well-drawn.  The pacing moved the book forward to an ending that made me long for the next book now.

As always, this book by Thomas Locke will keep you turning pages and appreciating the details that give credence to the stories he writes.  Here is my favorite quote from this book:

"Roger softly interrupted, 'You made a thousand percent profit?  In two weeks?'"

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
