Lincoln Child’s new book is “The Forgotten Room.” Professor Jeremy Logan receives an urgent summons from the director of Lux, one of the oldest and most respected think tanks in America – an unexplained tragedy has taken place in the sprawling compound located in Rhode Island. Once there Logan quickly makes a surprising discovery: in a long-dormant wing of the estate is an ingeniously hidden secret room, untouched for decades, filled with eerie machinery and obscure references to a top-secret experiment known as “Projects.” Logan soon begins to discern what transpired in that room and why the project was abandoned and the room sealed off – but not before he’s unleashed a series of catastrophic events.
