Todd R. Lockwood’s Dance of the Innocents (published by iUniverse) is a creative exploration of the science of collective behavior. Centered on a shocking discovery of a grand ring-like pattern of human movement spanning the city of Minneapolis, this thrilling novel sweeps readers along at a whirlwind pace.
David Peters has been unemployed for months. The former marketing guru is caught in a relentless downward spiral. He’s been wearing the same T-shirt for weeks, his lawn looks like a hayfield, his car is belching blue smoke, and his wife is ready to kill him. He’s convinced the government is behind it all.
Tired of pointless job interviews, David divides his time between coffee at a local diner and do-it-yourself science explorations. During one of these explorations David devises a new twist on time-lapse photography, revealing secret patterns of behavior in everyday life. He combines his time-lapse ingenuity with satellite images to uncover patterns on a grand scale. Now, if only someone would take him seriously.
The government takes David quite seriously when they realize he has uncovered a human catastrophe they are desperately trying to hide. When his wife becomes a victim herself, David’s conspiracy theories become all too real. He seeks the advice of an expert only to discover that he has tapped into a primal legacy, and the government wants a piece of it. At every turn the stakes get larger, until finally David finds himself at the crossroads of good and evil. Now his creativity and brilliance will be put to the ultimate test. The future of humanity is on the line.
