    Rating 2375 of fiveThe Book Report Progeria is a rare genetic disorder that causes the very young to age at a rate unimaginable to us normal folk It is always fatal and it can't even be ameliorated It's a cruel cruel disease and since it's so extremely rare no one in the drug industry cares enough to work on it since there's not a profit to be made Typing that sentence made me nauseatedResearcher Richard Draman isn't one of those profit driven asshats because his daughter is a progeria sufferer His old acuaintance Annette Chevalier star geneticist and research superstar kills herself suddlenly and then her husband shows up on Richard's doorstep to give him a copy of all Annette's research Which he takes apparently without a ualm and without thinking through what will inevitably occur since he's in possession of research conducted FOR someone BY someone neither of whom are himHe then goes and shows the research to a shadowy figure from Annette's and his past a man who was absolutely the top of the field who MYSTERIOUSLY DISAPPEARED FOR TWENTY YEARS I mean this is as stupid as all those horror movie screamers who wear high heels for a walk in the forest The dude DISAPPEARED and now reappears for no special reason? That should be a huge blinking red sign saying stay away to a person who is in illegal possession of someone else's intellectual propertyOh well anyway there's some other stuff that happens and then the author got bored and slapped on an ending It involves an idiotic reversal of fortune and is annoying to me than I can adeuately express in words My Review Great idea Mediocre execution HORRIBLE ending Avoid like it has cooties

    What would you give for the secret of immortality? What would anyone give? Microbiologist Richard Draman's aim wasn't that high His daughter suffers from a rare genetic defect commonly known as progeria that causes rapid aging in children They rarely live past twelve and his daughter was already eight Things weren't going well when research lands in his hands courtesy of a grieving husband that shows promise His scientist wife had committed suicide only he didn't believe it He wanted Richard to look at the research and see if it worth committing murder He agreed even though he believed the man was just grasping at strawsHe was astounded at what he read This was something that might work to help victims of progeria He takes it to a fellow scientist and shortly after his home is invaded by police he's accused of industrial espionage Suddenly the idea that the woman had been murdered seemed a bit possibleThen all doubt was removed when Richard was coming back from a late night run and prevents a man from murdering his daughter The fellow has a gun and a syringe and by luck than anything he injects the man with the syringe contents The fellow escapes Richard sees the syringe fall from the man's thigh as he calls the police The police claim to find no syringe and seem interested in proving Richard guilty of the attempt for the life insuranceThat's when he packs up the family and the three of them go on the run They don't know who to trust who to go to for help so Richard reaches into his past for a man he hasn't sen in a dozen years a man he barely knows a man who professes to owe him a favor for his efforts to save the man's cancer ridden wifeA powerful cabal is after them and their only help is a retired government agent hell on wheels in his day but long past his primeHow can he avoid these people? How can he learn what they so desperately want to keep secret? How can he help his daughter whose has only a few years to live at best?A fast moving thriller whose on sale date is December 6thRecommended

    I would give this 5 stars for the originality of the concept and 3 stars for the execution The thriller genre seems to cause authors to flesh out their story with improbable daring do In this case he has avoided the worst examples of the genre but does so by often just leaving gaps in the story The how did they get from there to here is often not answered But the story moves along and it is an easy book to readHere we follow the story of Richard Draman who is working to cure his daughter's progeria a genetic disease causing the early onset of aging When some research is shared with him that could reveal clues to a cure he is confronted with a group that wants to suppress the research by eliminating anyone aware of the detailsAs with all good fiction the author shares some insights on the disease on the implications of immortality and on those who consider themselves somehow separate from the rest of usAnother low cost offering from that is worth the price

    A preposterous plot from beginning to end with virtually no twists beyond one utterly predictable one about one third of the way through Unfortunately the first few scenes were uite good beginning with the killing of a biologist the shift in scene to another biologist and his 8 year old daughter with progenia which manifests itself as rapid premature aging and the handover of the first biologists thumb drive But then a massive almost parody of a Dr Evil global conspiracy starts chasing him complete with a hidden Pacific island lair of the evil mastermind an eccentric billionaire who also has his own private army and people who dispatch armies to kill people left and right if they have the slightest connection to the fleeing biologist All centering around a drug that is meant to reverse the aging process making someone young and immortal The chapters are rapid fire short and action filled so in a sense it is a page turner just a deeply dissatisfying one

    Internationally respected microbiologist Dr Richard Draman is working on a cure for an extremely rare disease progeria a genetic disorder that causes premature aging and early death Despite facing a lack of funding and general public interest Draman strives to eradicate this hideous disease The reason his daughter Susie has the disorderAfter a brilliant female colleague dies of an apparent suicide Draman is handed the details of her work in progress by her widower who is convinced his wife did not commit suicide; but rather she was killed off for delving into areas of work that somebody wanted kept uiet Shortly after viewing his colleague's fascinating research Draman reasonably suspects he and his family are no longer safe and is also convinced someone or some group is working to shutdown Draman's operation And thus begins a cat and mouse chase and race against time to save his daughterThe Immortalists is a cut and dry medical thriller with stock characters including rival billionaires with unlimited power and resources and a familiar story arc The novel is well paced the dialogue natural and the action just intriguing enough to keep one turning the pages but ultimately there is nothing new here The Immortalists is slightly better than the medical thrillers of Robin Cook though far shy of the works of Michael CrichtonIf you're looking for a uick read that will keep your attention long enough to pass a few hours The Immortalists will certainly fill that need Otherwise you're better off passing on this one and seeking a thrill elsewhere

    The Immortalists is my first book by Kyle Mills I chose this one first even though he's better known for his pure spy thrillers because I was curious about the medical aspect of this novel In it the protagonist is a genius scientist whose daughter has a very rare genetic disease that he sets out to cure while also trying to figure out why other scientists studying similar diseases are being killed off Because I'm not comparing The Immortalists to Mills' other works I can say that I found it very engrossing—uite the page turner; some reviewers feel it's less so than his other works Mills' writing is high level and pure; it never gets in the way of the story He is a very good writer with superior story telling abilitiesThis book is definitely plot driven which comes as no surprise The flip side of that is that the storyline gives way to the plot Meaning I felt a few of the elements of the story were far fetched eg the parents leave their sick daughter in the hands of a man they barely know That being said the parents' decisions were based on brilliant reasoning—well thought out ideas by the author They also escape billionaire bad guys one too many times for credibilities' sake but they had to right?I really liked the ending of the book It was logical believable and satisfying Four Stars
