Reviewed by Deborah Lloyd for Readers' Favorite

When two FBI agents showed up in the research laboratory at Harvard’s Institute for Genomic Engineering, professor Brad Parker was irritated and skeptical. His goal was to use his sabbatical year for his own research while being relieved from his teaching duties at Boston Technological Institute. He was surprised when the agents asked for his assistance regarding the possibility of a Chinese spy in the laboratory. Brad’s almost live-in partner, Karen Richmond, was also an FBI agent, and he asked her advice before agreeing to become involved. In Forever: A Medical Thriller, written by Geoffrey M. Cooper, a riveting adventure unfolds. While Karen is immersed in tracking down a serial killer, Brad becomes enmeshed in a treacherous scheme.

One of the most compelling aspects of this book is the depiction of medical research. Brad’s continual search for grant funding, competitiveness, and cooperation among researchers and the quest for life-changing treatments illustrate the complex realities of medical progress. It is an interesting, behind-the-scenes look at how medical advances are made. Additionally, there is a large cast of fascinating characters, and it takes time to determine which ones are the criminals. The plot is well-crafted and easy to read. The story is balanced well, moving smoothly from the research lab to the personal relationship between Brad and Karen. Author Geoffrey M. Cooper has written a chilling page-turner in Forever: A Medical Thriller. This gripping tale has many unexpected twists and turns, and the ending is unforeseen. It is a captivating read!
