BOOK REVIEW: A Quantum Alibi
by Liam Fialkov
ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):
When the FBI arrested Professor Eldridge for the murder of his archrival, they relied primarily on eyewitnesses’ accounts and a security camera. The professor had been on the other side of the country when the crime took place, where he gave a lecture to hundreds of students. Or was he? Did he use the laws of nature to commit an impossible homicide?
A revered Native American healer and shaman trains his only grandson to follow in his footsteps. The curious boy is on a quest for his life’s purpose. After high school, the young man goes to the university, where he experiences the promises, depths, and risks of love.
Delving deeply into the clues, Michael, an investigative journalism teacher, is stumped by the paradoxical footage of the accused man at the scene of the homicide. Can Michael discover the truth before more people die?
Carefully crafted and deeply absorbing, Liam Falkov’s genre-bending novel blends the taut, page-turning nature of a legal thriller with a moving coming-of-age story. As two seemingly unconnected narratives surge closer and closer together, their inevitable intertwining leads to a searing conclusion you won’t expect.
If you like captivating characters, sensational surprises, and inspiring storylines, then you’ll love Liam Fialkov’s imaginative enigma.

Liam Fialkov, the author, reached out to me and asked me to review this book. Since it was available on Kindle Unlimited, I downloaded it for free. Here’s my review…
A murder is committed and the primary suspect seems obvious, but could there more to the story than what meets the eye?
Half of the book is about Professor Eldridge and his trial (and his claim of being able to be in two places at once). The other half of the book is about a Native American boys as he grows up and goes off to medical school, experiencing an extreme heartbreak at one point. The two stories are woven together through the course of the book, and they seem like completely different stories…until they connect at the end.
This book isn’t something I would normally select, but I really enjoyed it! New details are constantly unfolding so it never gets dull. I was concerned it might be too science-based for me, but that wasn’t the case at all. I definitely recommend it if you enjoy mystery/thrillers.
