Review : The Eighth Day by Tom Avitabile a.k.a, Pseudo-scientific Conspiracy Theory Thriller

The Eighth Day by Tom Avitabile

A chemical engineer sets in motion a horrendous explosion killing hundreds of commuters and himself. Hollywood's hottest sex symbol assasinates a sitting Senator. A  grandmother stages a sophisticated attack on a train causing massive damage. An airplane full of Silicon Valley's brightest is blown up while refuelling. A series of deadly, unrelated events or the unlikely start of an insidious terror network? As Science Advisor to the President, William "Wild Bill" Hiccock is tasked with assembling a team to identify and stop the threat, whether homegrown or foreign. His team- a retired Navy Admiral, a wise-guy computer hacker sprung from federal prison, and his ex-wife, a leading behavioural psychologist- must identify and destroy their elusive adversary who always seems to be a step ahead.

 Indeed, this will be a challenge to myself and a testament of my strength and will in actually completing something!
