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.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
ExtraLife, Inc. was an outstanding medical and legal thriller that really gripped me by the collar and didn’t let go until the very end. The story follows patent attorney Richard Lunz as he works with scientists David and Tamara Wolfson to stake a claim on their cure for cancer. What starts out as an interesting case quickly turns into a mind-blowing thrill ride that changes everything.
I loved this book because it kept taking me by surprise. The characters were rich, and complex and I just couldn’t help but love peeling away their layers and trying to figure them out, especially Tamara. There’s just something that doesn’t feel right from the beginning and getting to know her is a bizarre journey, to say the least.
The twists in the story and strange incidents that spur them on really kept me at the edge of my seat. From inexplicable deaths to the jaw-dropping conclusion, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. If you like a thrilling, cerebral mystery, you have to read ExtraLife, Inc. Just be prepared to pick your jaw up off the floor when you’re done. Excellent read!

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.
