New from Down & Out Books: STRIKING DISTANCE by Thomas Locke
The Floridant/10274003

TAMPA, Fla. - Floridant -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that STRIKING DISTANCE, a technothriller by Thomas Locke, has been published on June 17, 2024 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


Reese Clawson's work is mind-bending—literally. Her company specializes in global data analysis for an elite group of industry executives, and now a lucrative government contract is moving her into the realm of cutting-edge intelligence gathering. She is determined to crack the limits of consciousness—and in doing so, the boundaries of secrets and lies. But her experiment crashes as test subjects slide into a coma-like state.

As the threads of perception and reality become tangled and even time itself twists in unexpected directions, one warning remains clear: What you don't know can kill you.

Advance praise for STRIKING DISTANCE …

"Locke's writing has never been stronger. The power of his style, especially in the presentation of situations, contexts, and geography is enough, more or less in and of itself, to make the book a gripping and intense experience." —Publishers Weekly

"Readers will love this storyline…A true psychological thriller that cannot be put down…An awesome jaunt into a world that may be closer than we think." —Suspense Magazine (Winner, Best Book of the Year)

"Thomas Locke masterfully keeps the suspense level taut throughout the book. It is a rare author that 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." —Manhattan Book Review
