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, D.C., 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan Horkey | 2/20/2014

    " Very suspenseful. John Case writes excellent books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Brateman | 2/1/2014

    " Beginning was boring! Then, there was action: awesome! Then, argh, it sucked at the end. For the most part, this was fun to read, and if the ending were a little more thought out, I'd give it 4 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 1/31/2014

    " An entertaining read. It ties all lose ends but does it in a hurry. The ending is a little bit anti-climatic, it could've been better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/27/2014

    " This was an enjoyable read. It did seem to go on and on and on and on but every time I thought I'd abandon, the plot grabbed me back in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/18/2014

    " Bit waffly to start with but intriguing to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah | 1/5/2014

    " Off-beat protagonist, intriguing plot, uneven in several places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marietta | 12/17/2013

    " It was a good novel, but it did not hold me the way most of John Case's writing does. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/6/2013

    " Eh. Rather far fetched at times. The protag deserves to be dead, many, many times over. But then there wouldn't be a story. A quick easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chazzle | 11/25/2013

    " The Eighth Day, by John Case - 3 stars; good, enjoyable action book, but too much detail (e.g., too many Turkish names, and a 4 page description of trying to find the right password on the internet); overall though, a good book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mamabeets | 11/20/2013

    " The Eighth Day is the last John Case I read; a page-turner, yes; his best, no. Still, I enjoyed the ride and the ending wraps up all the loose ends. I was afraid there would be no runner reference in this one, but over pronators got a nod about half way through. Thanks John. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dugger | 11/18/2013

    " Very average. Other Case books have been better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed Lynn | 11/11/2013

    " Not as entertaining as The Genesis Code, but still quite a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Parthi | 7/4/2013

    " Enjoyable thriller , Recommended "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Prillia | 5/19/2013

    " Not as good as The Genesis Code. The ending was rather out of my expectation. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robert | 1/31/2013

    " I listened to this on audiotapes. It's probably the first time I've ever been glad that I settled for an abridged version of a book. It was worse than The Mermaid Chair. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 11/28/2012

    " The same basic plot as all the others, (which I had really enjoyed) this was OK, but pretty put-downable... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheldon Lehman | 10/8/2012

    " Well written, but it goes from suspense to techie and loses some of its continuity. Considering it was written 10 years ago, it's interesting to think about what winds up being the topic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mie and Gareth | 8/26/2012

    " Roller-coaster romp. Couldn't put it down. Great stuff "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 7/28/2012

    " It's a good story but SLOW. I liked the protagonist, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janiej78 | 6/2/2012

    " Again took me a bit to get into it but then it did to the end.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare | 5/15/2012

    " Great book! Very taut and fast-moving. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 M Tremmel | 7/20/2011

    " I took our library's new quiz which gives you ten book s you'd like based on what you've already read. This one came up. It was mildly interesting but the writing was poor and the plot line thin in places. It turned into one of those books you finish just to see what happens. Wouldn't recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean | 12/9/2010

    " Very descriptive, plot was alright, but the visual wordplay made the book worth reading "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 10/27/2010

    " Not a bad read but it didn't get me always wanting to turn the page. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne Clark | 10/21/2010

    " A bit slow and not that gripping. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 9/29/2010

    " ehhh...I struggled to get through it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 8/6/2010
