The Forgotten Room

A massive mansion housing a private think-tank, a violent death and a hidden room with no door and a mysterious purpose … all the necessary ingredients for a fast-pace, intriguing thriller. The Forgotten Room by Lincoln Child was a quick, compelling read. In fact, I enjoyed it so much, I’m probably going to read another book by this author.

The main character in The Forgotten Room, Jeremy Logan, is “an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation.” He is hired by a prestigious think-tank located in a magnificent old mansion on the coast in Newport, Rhode Island to investigate the shocking and suspicious death of one of their fellows. Logan’s investigation leads him to a closed-off wing of the mansion, where a room with no doors is discovered, with mysterious equipment and unexplained purpose. Strange behavior in other residents continues and danger looms …


I can’t resist a mystery involving secret rooms in mansions, and The Forgotten Room┬ádidn’t disappoint. What novels are you drawn to? Are you irresistibly drawn to certain story lines?
