Trial and Redemption by Thomas Reilly is a compelling blend of science, magic, and human drama that takes readers on a gripping journey of hope, redemption, and the transformative power of second chances. The narrative continues the tale of a mystical Janus key introduced in the award-winning Chasing Time, this time focusing on disgraced scientist Brian Ellis and college student Julie as they form an unlikely alliance fueled by the key's magical ability to predict the future. Now they are on a mission to bring down a corrupt pharmaceutical executive and stop a devastating medical tragedy. But Bian has dark secrets that can put their lives and mission in danger. Can they carry this mission through with the odds stacked against them?

The story unfolds as Brian and Julie embark on a mission to bring down a corrupt pharmaceutical executive and avert a looming medical disaster. Their quest is guided by the Janus key, introducing an element of fantasy to the novel. The plot is enriched with unexpected twists and turns, keeping readers on the edge of their seats with heart-stopping suspense. Reilly expertly weaves together elements of medical and legal fiction, creating a narrative that is both unique and emotionally resonant.

The characters in Trial and Redemption are not only memorable but also highly sophisticated, each suffused with a rich background and finely drawn. Brian's past is tainted by disgrace, and Julie seeks to fix her life after experiencing family perils. Together, they form a dynamic duo whose quest for justice and redemption becomes the driving force of the narrative. Reilly offers terrific descriptions and imagery that lurks in the minds of readers. From the elements of the setting like the “droning buzz of the laboratory machinery” that “disturbed the stillness of the near-empty suite” to the frozen, urban streets marked, darkened buildings that swayed in surrender to the punishing wind.” This author can capture the soul of things and infuse life not only in his characters but in the setting as well. The lyrical prose and the snappy, intelligent dialogues augment the entertainment potential of this deftly crafted novel.  You just can’t put it down!
