The Iguana Project by Dale Arden has all the essentials of a great thriller – endless love, nonstop action, murder and a brilliant plan for revenge. When Patrick Brádaigh, high society member and lawyer, inadvertently crosses paths with the mafia, his wife is murdered for her refusal to hand over certain documents. Years later, Patrick meets a NASA scientist working on a method to use cryogenic sleep to send astronauts into deep space. Patrick capitalizes on this, planning to avenge the murder of his wife by inducing his mafia victims into hibernation.
It's an intriguing concept for a novel, not one that I had ever heard of before. It actually raised questions in my mind of how effective it really was in terms of revenge - not technically killing anyone, yet making them inaccessible, essentially dead to the world around them without being completely dead. People who really enjoy thrillers will likely enjoy reading this book.
