Book Review-The Lazarus Experiment-Mark DeGasperi

Wednesday, October 22, 2014


This novel is in the future, the year 2084 to be exact. It is a world that I personally hope never comes to be!! There are twists and turns in this book to the point that you will NEVER figure out the ending!! The depiction of what "medical science" was capable of and the devastation of New York State were eye openers-I sincerely hope this never ever happens. I really can't write anymore without giving away the plot-so I will let you read what was written on Amazon (and the back of the book). This futuristic murder mystery will surely give you chills!!

About the Book (from Amazon)

In the year 2084, a scientist-scholar wakes up from a coma to find himself the prime suspect of the murder of his mistress. He struggles in the stark world in which he regains consciousness to reconstruct relationships with his young son, and the wife with whom he was in a faltering marriage – even as he himself cannot remember if he had any part in the gruesome crime; nor even the circumstances of the fire in his lab that nearly killed him. He must race a dogged policewoman, who seems to believe that he is the killer from among a list of suspects, to learn the shocking, whole truth – before his family, and his own life, are destroyed.

I'd like to see the author's interpretation of the future through this book. Sounds exciting!

It would be awful to wake up and not remember. Even more so, I'm sure, if you're a scientist with the ability to be a part of something massively destructive.
