Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In Hartley's newest, disgraced English teacher Thomas Knight confronts a church conspiracy of silence surrounding the death of his brother, Father Edward Knight, while on a research trip in the Philippines. Looking to make sense of it all, Thomas's search leads him from Italy to Japan to the site of his brother's death, all the while narrowly escaping agents of unknown origin who seem hellbent on stopping him. With the distinction between friends and enemies becoming more fluid all the time, Knight falls in with his ex-wife at the State Department, a priestly colleague of his brother's and a murderous biologist to discover a secret that threatens, yes, the very foundations of Christianity. Not only is Hartley's novel well paced, with enough twists and turns to keep most thriller fans satisfied, he avoids the missteps of most attempts to cash in on the Da Vinci Codezeitgeist by focusing on the faithful rather than freewheeling conspiracies; his is a welcome take that considers thoughtfully, if at times clumsily, issues of belief and doubt. Though the action occasionally snags on some repetitive character details, this slam-bang title is a very fun, surprisingly satisfying read. (July)

    On the Fifth Day A.J. Hartley Berkley, Jul 2007, $7.99 ISBN: 0425216284 In Chicago, Thomas Knight knows the ¿wrath of God¿ when on the day Peter the Principal fired him from his English teaching job, Father Harmon calls him to inform him his estranged brother Father Edward Knight died while conducting research into church symbols in the Philippines. Stunned by the unexpected suddenness, Thomas needs to know what happened especially when strangers begin to visit Edward¿s abode seeking a sword, fish and other artifacts. He begins an odyssey that leads him to the Vatican and ultimately to the site where his sibling died. On his trek for the truth, someone sends professional hitmen to prevent him from learning why is brother was killed. Not sure who to trust, but desperately in need of allies, Thomas turns to Druid Hills Museum curator Deborah Miller, but realizes he has placed her in jeopardy as agents of the faith will kill anyone like they did Edward and others who learns the secret their leaders prefer buried. --- ON THE FIFTH DAY is a delightful Christian thriller that avoids the Da Vinci Code syndrome by not using a conspiratorial group, but instead the story line focuses on believers and doubters, who at times change positions as events play out. Thomas is a fascinating lead character as he begins to believe in a Da Vinci Code conspiracy at the same time he insists the Christian gene passed him he will have quite a revelation when he realizes his lethal adversaries are simply true believers who will sacrifice the innocent to keep the truth secret. --- Harriet Klausner

    Fantastic read

    This is a truly engrossing book. I had a hard time putting it down. True to life characters, fascinating plot, thought provoking and informative. I can hardly wait for his next book to come out.
