‘The Lazarus Experiment’ science fiction or suspense? you decide

lazarusIt is the year 2084 and Jonathan has just awakened from what he’s been told was a year-long coma unable to remember his life and finds that when snippets of memories come it isn’t what he thought.  He was in a failing marriage with a murdered mistress and the police think he did it.  When the memories buried deep inside are revealed, will he discover a truth he doesn’t desire?  But he can’t just let things be.

Description from the publisher:  “In Upstate New York in 2084, Dr. Jonathan Kelton, a brilliant scientist left clinically dead in the mysterious explosion of his lab, is rebuilt from surviving bits of his spine and brain by the enigmatic Dr. Oskar Rose. Jonathan tries to start anew with his wife Diane, with whom he was in a faltering marriage, and his seven-year-old son. But he’s shocked to find himself accused of the brutal murder of his former grad student, Mitcha. He must also struggle with strange, glaring gaps in his memory, as he slowly pieces together a dangerous affair between the two of them –even as he worries his secretive doctor’s radical, experimental surgery,the Lazarus Experiment, has left him subject to some form of mind control.He must race a dogged policewoman, who’s convinced he’s guilty from among a list of suspects, to try to find out who murdered Mitcha. But did he ever know? Or is he his own prime suspect? After going to every length to search for the truth –the very thing he believes sustains his own humanity–will he regret it?”

Will the reawakening of his mind be dangerous?  If he learns the shocking truth about his life and his job, will it destroy everything?  With the exception of a few instances of obscene language, “The Lazarus Experiment” is a good read.  Mark DeGasperi grabs the attention making it more suspense that science fiction.  Start this book when you have lots of time because you won’t want to put it down right away.
