The Ninth DayPaperback - 2011
"One of the top thriller writers working today. With crisp writing, clever plotting, and memorable characters, this one will satisfy even the most finicky of readers."
--Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key
Tess Gerritsen praised former Chicago lawyer-turned-writer Jamie Freveletti's stunning debut thriller, Running from the Devil as "a breathless, hair-raising read," and author Lee Child called it, "just terrific." Now, with The Ninth Day, Freveletti brings back her courageous and brilliant series protagonist Emma Caldridge for a third time--ensnaring the intrepid biochemist and marathon runner in the vicious web of a Mexican drug cartel determined to carry a terrible, virulent death across the border into the United States. A rapidly rising star in contemporary thriller fiction, Jaimie Freveletti fills her remarkable suspense novels with the explosive, non-stop action of a Daniel Silva adventure and the fascinating scientific detail of a Kathy Reichs or Patricia Cornwell blockbuster. And The Ninth Day is Freveletti's best so far.
