Synopsis

What does the man who has everything want? The answer is simple: for it to never end. Jackson Riley is a young billionaire living in the year 2052 with a single obsession – to discover immortality within his lifetime. But what happens when this obsession tears him apart from reality and his one true love Nicole? And why have untraceable special agents taken an interest in his medical experiments? Counterfeit Youth is an emotionally charged sci-fi thriller that explores the concept of happiness, and what it means to live forever.

***Derek  – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
As the synopsis says, this book explores and discusses the benefits and snags of living forever, as the hero of the story wishes to do (with the love of his life). By the time I had read twenty or so pages I felt sympathy for Jackson and wanted him to succeed. I have no doubt that this author could write the story which is obviously there but he forgot one thing, the conclusion.
When I got to the words ‘THE END’ I honestly thought I was only the three fifths through the book, hence my three stars. There are sufficient unanswered questions and loose ends not tied up that I expected more. Having said that, this man can write and you will enjoy the tale.
