Overview

2013 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER. Somewhere in the world, a genius builds a machine to bring mankind closer to God. Somewhere in time, another genius builds a cathedral with a mind of its own. Somewhere on the road, three searchers race a serial killer to find the man with the key to salvation.

It takes the sound and fury of Day 9 to bring them all together. If God took six days to make the world and rested on Day 7, humanity has spent Day 8 tearing it all apart. Everything changes on Day 9, when we get it right at any cost…or lose everything. On Day 9, a God’s-eye view of the world collides with the visions of a living, breathing cathedral in a war between the delusions of yesterday and the dreams of tomorrow. A war between beauty and mediocrity…love and hate…madness and sanity…life and death.

If the unlikely heroes in the heart of the storm can’t face down their own demons, the deepest secrets of maniacs and murderers could bring the hope of the future crashing down forever.

Don't miss this edgy, exciting, surprising, and thought-provoking thriller in the tradition of Tim Burton, the Coen Brothers, Thomas Pynchon, and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. It’s the latest novel from award-winning storyteller Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of unique and unexpected fiction that packs a punch.

"Robert Jeschonek is the literary love child of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman--his fiction is cutting edge, original, and pulsing with dark and fantastical life. His stories suck me in and refuse to let me go until the last page, even as his characters are busy stealing my heart." – Adrian Phoenix, critically acclaimed author of The Maker's Song series and Black Dust Mambo

    DAY 9 is an amazing cross genre novel, a real treasure mixing fantasy, scifi, historical, spiritual, and thriller elements. Half the book is a race against time in the modern day era to find a lost Gene Roddenberry-type who's built a device that grants a "God's-eye" view of the world. The other half is told, literally, from the point of view of a famous Spanish cathedral, the Sagrada Familia. And it all comes together in the end with plenty of action, drama, humor, and real human emotion. I can't recommend this powerful book highly enough. The cover compares the author to Kurt Vonnegut, Thomas Pynchon, and the Coen Brothers, and that's the truth!
