Description

New York Times bestseller Lincoln Child returns with a riveting new thriller featuring the charismatic and quirky Professor Jeremy Logan, renowned investigator of the strange and the inexplicable, as he uncovers a long-lost secret experiment only rumored to have existed.
     Jeremy Logan (The Third GateDeep Storm) is an "enigmalogist"—an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation. In this newest novel Logan finds himself on the storied coastline of Newport, Rhode Island, where he has been retained by Symposikon, one of the oldest and most respected think tanks in America. Just days earlier, a series of frightening events took place in the sprawling seaside mansion that houses the organization. One of its most distinguished doctors began acting erratically—violently attacking an assistant in the mansion's opulent library and, moments later, killing himself in a truly shocking fashion. Terrified by the incident and the bizarre evidence left behind, the group hires Logan to investigate—discreetly—what drove this erudite man to madness.
     His work leads him to an unexpected find. In a long-dormant wing of the estate, Logan uncovers an ingeniously hidden secret room, concealed and apparently untouched for decades. The room is a time capsule, filled with eerie and obscure scientific equipment that points to a top secret project long thought destroyed, known only as "Project S." Ultimately, the truth of what Project S was . . . and what has happened in that room . . . will put Logan in the path of a completely unexpected danger. 
     One of his most thrilling novels to date, The Forgotten Room is replete with veiled, fascinating history, and all the exhilarating action and science that are the hallmarks of a Lincoln Child blockbuster.

    I don't know how the other reviewers liked this book. Plot was thin, situations not realistic, characters not really likable, not much of a story. Everything today is a convoluted conspiracy. A major defense contractor that has hit men working for it. That kills to get its hands on research. Very far fetched.

    I really wish he hadn't included the standing stones in this book. He makes them sound like chess pieces with flat bottoms that can be moved around a floor. Lack of research. Detracted from the book for me. I usually really like his books.

    Just a little too convoluted for me. The setting and the beginning gave he hopes of reading a fascinating book but it soon disintegrated into too much fantasy and usual endings.

    I won't say that this is a favorite of the books I've read this year, but it was well-written, had a good story-line, etc.
