"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.

Enjoyable page turning read. Full of action, suspense, and little romance even though the heroine is surrounded by males. Emma tries to find a cure for a mysterious flesh-eating disease seemingly caused by marijuana plants owned by a Mexican drug-dealing cartel. The cartel plans to import the tainted marijuana shipment to the US hoping that Americans handling the shipment will get the disease and die. Emma is caught in the middle of this plan and must use her knowledge of chemistry to find a cure quickly as the timeline from the first symptoms to death is quite fast for those who come into contact with these plants.
