For Danny Cray, a struggling artist and part-time private
investigator, the offer is too good to be true. A wealthy, enigmatic lawyer,
Jude Belzer, would like to retain Danny for a little damage control. His
client, an elusive billionaire, is the target of a vicious campaign by the
Italian press that threatens to destroy his reputation. Belzer wants Danny to
find out who is responsible—and he will pay handsomely.
Danny’s only lead is the meager estate of a recently
deceased professor of religious studies, a man so deeply terrified that he
buried himself alive in the basement of an isolated farmhouse. Belzer swears
that if Danny can get the late professor’s files, the conspiracy against his
own reclusive client will unravel. It’s the perfect assignment, in a way, and
Danny can sure use the money.
But the more he probes, the more apparent it becomes that
nothing is what it seems. There is something he isn’t being told. Something
that’s not quite right. Something dark, fast, and sinister that’s coming at him
from behind. From the powerful world of Washington DC to the ancient grandeur
of Rome, from the mysteries of Istanbul to the high-stakes drama of Silicon
Valley, The Eighth Day is a briskly
paced, globe-trotting thriller of electrifying suspense. Packed with unexpected
reversals and astonishing twists of plot, this is John Case’s most gripping
novel to date. Download and start listening now!
