Overview

When a wealthy man takes his own life attempting to restart a bizarre machine, a decades old government cover-up begins to unravel pushing New York technology CEO Tom Hartger onto a course with destiny. Tom is joined by psychiatrist Gwen Pierce whose framework for clear thinking becomes surprisingly useful. Together the pair stumble onto a patent drawing for a machine that can "pull back the curtain" on the universe but when a shopkeeper is murdered the importance of their find becomes all too clear. Tom and Gwen follow the trail to the cloistered sanctuary of Tuxedo Park New York and former residence of Alfred Lee Loomis, a reclusive Wall Street tycoon who financed his own science laboratory in the 1920s. Tom and Gwen discover the whereabouts of key parts necessary for a mystic machine's operation but they aren't alone. A rogue FBI agent, Homeland Security, and an Eastern Indian billionaire are equally determined to activate their own destiny. The chase intersects NYC landmarks where each character discovers a deeper connection to the machine and surprisingly to each other. If the truth comes to light it could rock the foundation of mankind's belief about the nature of the universe and himself.

Edwin's Reflection sparks the arrival of a new species of fast-paced, intelligent thrillers. The characters and settings are completely absorbing and the plot is irresistible right up until its mesmerizing and profound conclusion. More at www.RayDeeg.com

Dear book lover - I'm honored that you're here! Edwin's Reflection was a labor of love and a true channel for me to express one very powerful idea that I couldn't shake. I hope you'll open your imagination and analytical thinking to the ideas presented here as well as consider the ways in which you're own perception can be skewed by your inability to distinguish what's happening in the world from what's happening in your mind. If you enjoy Stephen King, David Baldacci, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, Nelson DeMille, Ken Follett, Vince Flynn, Nora Roberts, Andrew Peterson, Daniel Silva, Brad Taylor, or Brad Thor, it is very likely that you'll find the concepts introduced in this story entertaining and frankly enlightening. The newly complete audio book is simply amazing and Thom Bowers does an epic job reading the story and each of the characters. Do you like to read before you buy?

Edwin’s Reflection: A Novel, by Ray Deeg, is a believable mystery/sci-fi like novel that that hints on government meddling and coverups through time change and a group of suicides completed by a group of billionaires. This was a very short and quick read, though I did find parts of it to be slightly confusing, and it could just have been that I myself do not fully understand quantum physics and the jargon that goes along with it. I’ve read other “time travel” type books that didn’t add a bunch of confusing lingo to them, but for someone who understands what they were discussing, this might be a fantastic read. I think that the plot and story line of the book were very well thought out and that the book itself was well written. My only suggestion would be to better explain the whole science discussion for those of us who don’t understand it. The characters were well developed and have significant back story to allow the reader to feel connected to them. Thought the story is a quick and easy read, it is definitely one that you have to pay attention to, or you will definitely miss something. I would recommend this to lovers of time travel and science fiction.

Really interesting read. This was a rather complex read for me because I found myself attempting to tie in real life with fiction on more than one occasion. I enjoyed the time it took me to actually get through this book because it was definitely not a finish in one sitting type of book. I took my time and peeled back the many layers of the characters as well as the ever changing story line and found that although at times there was excessive garb that may be un-relatable to some readers(such as myself) it still provided for a well developed plot and characters.I would definitely have liked to see less scientific references and just more adventure, but then I realized that this book is totally Science Thriller. So, although this type of read is definitely outside of my norm I was able to appreciate and enjoy a lot of aspects. I would totally recommend to anyone interested in a Science Thriller and Suspense.

Edwin's Reflection is a highly ambitious novel that posits a plot that a reclusive Wall Street tycoon built an all powerful machine in the 1920's that holds the key to revealing the secrets of mankind and the universe. In search of said machine are Tom Harger the chief executive officer of a technology company, psychiatrist Gwen Pierce, and a mentally unhinged F.B.I. agent named Randall Evans whose facially disfigured scientist grandfather long ago told him about the machine and its capabilities. The book is very well written and atmospheric as it gives a very viivid portrayal of each character and of the many New York City landmarks they visit throughout. However, the story itself and the science presented in it, can be difficult to understand for a layman. Furthermore, the narrative has a great many dark elements in it, the details of how Evan's grandfather attained his disfigurement, the suicide of the inventor of the machine, and its portrayal of F.B.I. agents as soulless creatures who lack empathy being prime examples. Finally, I did not find any of the characters presented to be likable or even that relatable, which was disappointing. So, although Edwin's Reflection is not a bad novel it is not that great either.

Hi I received this book in exchange for an honest review. The author pulls you into this deep world where nothing is as it seems. I really wanted to be in love with this book. The premise is great mysterious billionaires that commit suicide mysterious machines and messing with the universe. But the technical talk sections were really hard to get through. I was really confused as they talked quantum physics and bending time and space. I think the author had great intentions and thoroughly researched the content. I feel like I just couldn't get past all the complex theories that are bounced around. The character development was great! Overall the book was good but it's definitely not an easy read, you need to pay attention to what's going because there is subtle hints as to what's going to happen next.
