It’s Monday! What are you reading?
This week I read the thriller “Seven Unholy Days” by Jerry Hatchett.
Seven Unholy Days is about the collapse of the modern-day world at the hands of a mad man. It follows Matthew Becker, the contractor for America’s electrical grid, and an unknown adversary who is taunting him, shutting down the power across the country, crashing the financial markets around the world, kidnapping a young woman, and murdering thousands of people. Slowly, we find out that the perpetrator believes he is the anti-christ, setting into motion the apocalypse, and the catastrophes happening around the world are following the seven seals in the book of Revelations.
The writing bounces back and forth between third person and first person, which is a little distracting, but the story is well worth the effort. It is weaved and plotted exquisitely, with well-crafted characters and a storyline straight out of a million-dollar movie.
It has lots and lots of tech jargon, so if you’re geeky at all, you’ll love it!
Check it out HERE on Amazon.

Sounds intriguing. I just finished The Truest Pleasures by Robert Morgan. This book has sat on my bookshelf for a decade, waiting for the right moment to read. I found that moment on a mountaintop in North Carolina this past week. Enjoyed reading a story set in the same place more than 100 years ago.
So cool! I love books about real places. Sounds like you’re enjoying your mountain retreat. 🙂
Yes – so much. I hadn’t realized how much I loved living in the country until I returned.
