EXTRALIFE, INC Book Tour and Review

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:
     When you read the first few pages, you know this will be a thriller.  Richard is trying his best to help the David and Tamara get the patent on David's discovery. David appears scared of the hospital knowing what his discovery is. 
 Richard was an interesting lead character. In the beginning I thought he was a boring character but I was sooo wrong. David and his wife Tamara were just weird. They seemed like the type of people that you just get a bad vibe from. Tamara was controlling and you could tell she pushed David around.  David seemed scared of everything.
 Richard knows there is something just not right with this case. Did David find a cure for cancer? He finds out that he was right to be suspicious, when a man is killed in a strange and confusing way. Richard had no clue the intrigue that would unfold.  

 This book is one of those rare thrillers that you can't predict the outcome. The story is unique and captivating. I read the whole book in one night. I'm still shocked how it all turned out. If you are looking for something a little different in a thriller, this is it. 


  1. The cure for cancer, wow, I'm already interested in this book!

  2. I love a good thriller. You've got me interested in reading this now.

  3. I love a thriller that is unpredictable and has an ending that has the potential to shock me.

  4. this book sounds really interesting

  5. The book sounds interesting. I wonder if the scientist found a cure for cancer and the deaths were coincidence, if his claims were not entirely true, or someone tampered with whatever he was doing.

  6. I have always loved thrillers. This book seems very interesting!
