Review: THE FORGOTTEN ROOM by Lincoln Child
Review: THE FORGOTTEN ROOM by Lincoln Childs
The new thriller in Author Lincoln Childs' Jeremy Logan series, THE FORGOTTEN ROOM intricately weaves history, contemporary intellectual and scientific research, scientific fact and supposition, together with those age-old staples of the human spirit: the obsession for knowledge; and greed. Yale historian and self-proclaimed "enigmalogist" Jeremy Logan returns to the New England think tank from which he had been summarily dismissed a decade ago, summoned to investigate the inexplicable suicide of one if the Fellows, a brilliant computer scientist on the verge of an anticipated and active retirement. Logan uncovers mysteries dating back to the 1920's-1930's, virtually concealed by lots of coverups. In the midst of imminent and potentially fatal danger, Logan must act to preserve the sanity of the human race, or die in the attempt. What is the most frightening to me in this novel is the unlimited boundaries of science being warped by greed and sociopathy--techniques that could have promise as cures, warped into hostile and fatal weapons applications.
