Book Description

7 Aug 2003

"And on the Seventh Day, He rested." --Genesis, 2:2-3 The EighthDay is an explosive, compulsively readable novel of suspense that plunges a clever young man into a web of mystery and international deceit, bringing him face to face with the ultimate evil. Danny Cray is a struggling 28 year-old sculptor and video artist who lives in Washington DC. To make ends meet, he does occasional freelance work as a researcher for a large firm of private detectives. When one of their most powerful clients approaches him with a job, the money is too good to resist. All he has to do is learn what a recently deceased university professor was working on when he died.

But Danny stumbles on far more than he expected when he discovers that the professor was in touch with the Vatican about a remote tribe of Kurds who worship the Peacock Angel; Satan. After others connected to the professor start to disappear, Danny finds himself in great peril and must travel into the ancient land where this tribe still lives in order to discover what is truly at stake in his investigation. A mesmerising blend of science, religion, history and suspense, The Eighth Day confirms John Case's position as a master of intelligent commercial fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense Hitchcock would have been proud of! 7 Jan 2007
I love the sense of humour of John Case. He has mastered the art of building the suspense, releasing you with a hilarious comment (you WILL laugh out loud at times), then building the suspense again until shocking you with something completely unforeseen. This was a technique film director Alfred Hitchcock excelled at.

In the Eighth Day the hero is a 26 year old artist and part time investigator. He gets a case that takes him to Italy and Turkey in a story peppered with murders. A must if you enjoy thrillers.

By A Customer
Danny, a likeable american artist and part-time private investigator gets in way over his head when he discovers more than he is supposed to on a misson for a client. As more mysterious, sinister and frightening events unfurl, Danny gets deeper and deeper into trouble and fears for his life. Brilliantly told, with a fast moving plot which whisks around the world, it's difficult to put this book before the end.
As John Case books go, I would put this in second place after The Genesis Code which is just brilliant, but it's worth reading them all!! Sleep well!!

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable thriller 3 Oct 2003
This is a very good thriller and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The plot is fast-moving and well constructed. I felt a lot of sympathy for the main character, Danny Cray, because he is not the typical hero, in fact he is what you might call an anti-hero. He often lacks self-confidence, he is a hesitating if clumsy man and so the identification reader-hero is all the more easy. I would compare Danny Cray to Cary Grant in Alfred Hitchcock's "North By Northwest".
