Overview
A LONG-LOST EXPERIMENT OFUNGUESSABLE INTENT

A SECRET ROOM, INGENIOUSLYHIDDEN INSIDE A VAST SEACOASTMANSION

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLINGAUTHOR LINCOLN CHILD AT HISRIVETING BEST
Professor Jeremy Logan (the quirky and charismatic enigmalogist who specializes in solving problems of the strange or seemingly supernatural variety)receives an urgent summons from the director of Lux, one of the oldest and most respected think tanks in America. An unexplainable tragedy has taken place in the sprawling compound located on the coastline of Newport, Rhode Island. One of Lux s most distinguished doctors, overcome by erratic behavior, violently attacked his assistant before meeting with a gruesome self-inflflflffllflicted end. Deeply shaken by the incident and the bizarre evidence left behind from the doctor s final project as well as recent troublingbehavior among several of the think tank s otherscientists Lux fears there is something more sinister occurring within its walls and looks to Jeremy Logan to investigate.
Logan quickly makes a surprising discovery. In a long-dormant wing of the estate, he uncovers aningeniously hidden secret room, unknown anduntouched for decades. The room is essentially a time capsule, fiffiilled with eerie machinery and obscure references to a top-secret experiment known as Project S. As Logan attempts to unravel its meaning, he begins to discern what transpired in that room and why the frightening project was suddenly abandoned and sealed off many years before. As his work draws him ever deeper into harm s way, Logan soon unleashes a series of catastrophic events upon the rest of Lux . . . and himself.
One of Lincoln Child s most thrilling novels to date, The Forgotten Room is replete with exhilarating action, veiled history, and mesmerizing science making for a truly intelligent page-turner."

In bestseller Child’s chilling sequel to 2012’s The Third Gate, Gregory Olafson, the director of Lux, “the nation’s oldest and most prestigious policy institute,” summons “enigmalogist” Jeremy Logan to the group’s headquarters, a mansion in Newport, R.I. Ten years earlier, Logan was expelled from Lux for his unconventional methods, but now Olafson needs his help on a case: computer scientist Willard Strachey inexplicably attacked his assistant before committing suicide in a particularly gruesome way. In a recording of Strachey’s last words, he complains about voices that “taste like poison.” Logan suspects that Strachey’s behavior may be connected to his overseeing renovation work on an abandoned wing of the mansion. The paranormal investigator subsequently discovers a hidden room containing some odd equipment. Near the fireplace is a burned scrap of paper bearing the words Project Sin; the sound of disturbing music adds to the room’s eeriness. Child makes the most of the creepy setting, his unusual lead character, and an intricate plot. Agent: Eric Simonoff, William Morris Endeavor. (May)
