Book Review: ExtraLife, Inc by Kfir Luzzatto

by Kfir Luzzatto

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.

Meet the Author:

Kfir was born and raised in Italy, and moved to Israel as a teenager. He acquired the love for the English language from his father, a former U.S. soldier and WWII veteran, a voracious reader and a prolific writer.

With a PhD in chemical engineering and a long family history that he needs to live up to, Kfir work as a patent attorney and heads the patent law firm that was established by his great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869. Kfir lives in Omer, Israel, with his full-time partner, Esther, their four children, Michal, Lilach, Tamar and Yonatan, and the dog Elvis.

Writing has always been Kfir’s passion and for almost four years he wrote a weekly “Patents” column in Globes (Israel’s financial newspaper), which also yielded his only (if he can help it) non-fiction book, THE WORLD OF PATENTS, (a not-so-boring tale of what patents are about, in Hebrew), which was published in 2002 by Globes Press.

Kfir loves writing short stories but has too many novels waiting to be written (and possibly not enough years ahead of him to write them all), so now he mostly writes full-length fiction. His other passion is working with other authors on stories he loves and that’s how he wound up serving on the editorial board of The Harrow Press as Anthology Editor.

You can read about Kfir’s books here. He loves them all, but never had greater fun than when working on “HAVE BOOK WILL TRAVEL”, a YA fantasy that he wrote together with his son, Yonatan.

My Review:

Imagine you were told someone found a cure for cancer. That is exactly what happened to Richard was told one day. Richard is a patent attorney. David (who found the cure) and his wife Tamara hire Richard to protect them and the discovery.

Things are not simple with this discovery. The hospital David works at wants to lay claim to the discovery, dispite the fact they don’t know exactly what that discovery is. Can you imagine? You do all the work and someone tries to take claim and reep the rewards.

Just when you think this is just a story about a doctor finding a cure for cancer, you find out there is so much more to the story. This is one story that has so many twists and turns it will make you begging for more.
