The Eighth Day sees a series of terrorist attacks in America, seemingly unrelated but all devastating. The FBI investigate their theory whilst scientific advisor to the President, William Hiccock, investigates a separate theory involving subliminal messages in computers.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, with the pace increasing steadily throughout the novel. The characters and events were believable and action came at all the right times to keep the story moving. Hiccock is the central character, but is not a master of all trades and gets help from those around him, as well as searching for extra help from outside sources. The Eighth Day is an excellent thriller and the ending is not obvious or given away early, so I won’t spoil it here!
Rating (out of 5): *****
