I was blown away by this book! I love the legal and medical mystery genre and this one is now at the top of my list! This book starts strong and doesn't stop until the very last page. I read this entire book in 3 days, and that was with me working and still taking care of my boys and house. I could not put this book down. The premise of the book is original and thought provoking. What if you could not age? Everyone wants the fountain of youth, but have you ever thought about the flip side of that coin? Never maturing, no puberty, no children, and always being thought of as a child. Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for. This story was a thrilling, page turning read with so many twists and turns that you are never quite sure what is coming next. There is a lot of cutting edge science mixed with the thrills and suspense, and the blend of the two is just right. I am a serious new fan of Kira Peikoff!

Live forever? Sounds wonderful when wishing and dreaming but, not everyone will agree. Great story of genetic possibilities and THE ramifications of such. Intriguing and tense.

5 stars do not do this book justice! This was just an awesome incredible read! From page one on I just couldn’t put it down! It’s a combination of everything: mystery, family love, thrills, science and hope….just doesn’t quit! I didn’t really know what to expect and everything in this was just uniquely surprising. A GREAT read! Can’t wait to order the next one!

NO TIME TO DIE covers issues of medical and research ethics, genetics, and legal rights. As my full-time job is in the arena of human subjects protections I was excited to read this new thriller. Zoe Kincaid is a 20 year old woman who has the appearance of a young teenager. Zoe has felt like a freak for years and only wants to grow up - to look like a normal 20 year old. Her parents are in denial and her only supporter is her maternal grandfather. When she has medical tests performed without her parents’ knowledge, as they want her to accept herself through therapy, she finds out her genetic makeup may hold the key to new discoveries in the science of aging. Meanwhile there is a secret group, The Network, led by a charismatic man who goes by “Galileo” which secret experiments on human subjects without IRB or governmental oversight. The head of the DOJ’s Bioethics Committee, Les Mahler, is desperate to shut The Network down by any means necessary. When Zoe goes missing along with a researcher who was the last to see her, Mahler is determined to root out The Network once and for all. Zoe is a likable character and while her outward appearance is of a young teenager, it seemed to me as if she should have behaved more in a manner fitting her chronological age. I think this would have helped show a distinction between who she really is versus how the world and her parents treat her. “Galileo” had a Robin Hood-esque feeling to him; larger than life and pursuing new discoveries ‘for the greater good’. Whose greater good? It is true that science and technology develop faster than our understanding on how to deal with these breakthroughs in an ethically sound manner. However, this doesn’t mean that just because you can do something it should be done. It appears there is an underlying approval by the characters of experiments conducted on humans without any kind of ethical review. Those who don't agree are written in a more negative light. The science itself is fascinating, even with some accelerated timelines for plot sake, as all humans fear aging in some way. NO TIME TO DIE is an interesting take on the field of research and ethics, sure to spark many lively conversations.

GivenTo Me For An Honest Review Kira Peikoff's book No Time to Die is a must read.  The story plot is great.  It is a fast paced story.  Once you sit  down to read it you will be unable to stop until you reach the end.  This book is a real page turner and has a whole  lot of twists and turns.  The main character is Zoe Kincaid.  She is 20 years old chronologically but has the maturity  of a 14 year old. People always want the knowledge about how to stay young.  In this novel you will find out how.  But staying young forever, is what you have to go through really worth it?  This novel is one about cutting edge  science mixed with thrills and edge of seat suspense.  When you get to the end you will wonder, "Now what?"  But  no worry.  The sequel will be out in 2015 and the title is Die Again Tomorrow. I recommend this book to all.
