Synopsis from Goodreads
David Wolfson, a Jerusalem scientist, claims to have found the cure for cancer. He and his wife, Tamara, seek the help of Richard Lunz, a Tel Aviv attorney, to fight the powerful bureaucrats who want to appropriate David's invention.
Richard can’t resist the temptation to participate in what looks like the discovery of the century, and it takes a first death to make him doubt that something in the project is not what it seems.
And then other people die.
Following clues that take him to Eastern Europe and to America, Richard finds more answers than he wished for. But he just can't stop looking.
ExtraLife, Inc. is a thrilling story about a lawyer named Richard. Richard has been contacted by a scientist named David who is calling him about something big. David may have made the biggest discovery in history; the cure for cancer. But this massive discovery has come with a price. The hospital he works with knows he has done something big and they don't want him to take the credit for his scientific breakthrough. Richard takes on the case because he really wants to know if David is legit. But tragedy strikes and Richard soon finds out that there is more going on with his clients than he thought. Richard is now in for the ride of his life, but what he finds may be a lot worse than what he anticipated.
WHAT?!!! This read definitely took me by surprise. I knew that this was going to be thrilling, but man, I had no idea what how far this was going to go. Richard was an interesting lead character. At first I wasn't too sure I liked him. There were times he could be a bit judgmental, but I did like him. He was smart and definitely listened to his gut when everybody told him to let it all go. He had a lot of courage given all that takes place. He gets screwed over quite a bit in this book. David and his wife Tamara were a strange pair. David was a bit timid and was scared of his own shadow. He had reason to be, but still. I especially would have been scared because of his wife, Tamara. From the get go, you can tell there is something quite off with her. Not to mention you can tell she wears the pants in the relationship.
The build up in this book was amazing. You will be at the edge of your seat from the get go. Richard is trying his best to help the Wolfsons, but he is in for a rude awakening. He knows there is something off with this case and specifically with them. He suspicions are confirmed when someone working with David is killed in such a bizarre way. The man, Malik, was electrocuted, specifically struck by lightning in a room with no windows on a clear night. And that is not even the strangest thing to happen. Richard is working hard and fast to get to the bottom of this and it is hard to believe where it ends.
I really enjoyed this book a lot. I was buried in this story. I couldn't believe it. I do love the end because I didn't see it coming. I had a feeling there was something much bigger since Richard son said something weird, but man, it is huge. I mean crazy huge what the mystery is. There are a few things I wish were resolved though specifically about Tamara. I don't think this will be given a sequel, but it would be nice for sure. Trust me, you will want one when you get to the end. My mouth is still dragging on the floor. It is insane. If you are looking for an exciting mystery, this would be a fantastic choice. Seriously, do not pass this up. You have no idea what you are missing.
