The Eighth Day
What they know might get them
What they are might save us all.
High school seniors Jay Anderson and Kathy Winters have been best friends and next-door neighbors their whole lives. Both have bright futures ahead of them…then in an instant their idyllic small-town lives are turned upside down.
Jay is accused of a crime he didn’t commit and immediately becomes social pariah. Kathy and the rest of their small circle of friends seem to be the only ones who believe in his innocence.

From the steps of Capitol Hill to the frozen wastelands of Siberia, from the unfriendly skies over Eastern Europe to the treacherous waters of the Caribbean, danger lurks around every corner as they seek to learn the truth about what was created on…
