The Eighth Day
“Frighteningly realistic. Most of Washington really works this way. Homeland Security had better read this one and take corrective action.”
– U.S. Ambassador Michael Skol
“A thriller with some insights into human behavior”
– Mel Robbins, CNBC
“I was fascinated. In fact, I had trouble putting it down one night and went to bed late so I could finish
the book to see how it came out!”
– Otis Young, “All About Books,” N.E.T. Radio
“A gripping and compelling read.”
– The Sun Daily
“Awesome. I could not go to sleep last night because I couldn’t put it down!”
– Donna Hanover, WOR Radio 710
“The author weaves a tale that will occasionally take your breath away and then cause you to sigh with relief…. He is a master wordsmith who knows the value of just the right phrase at just the right moment. His timing will keep you on the edge of your chair.”
– Bill Twomey, CNG Newspaper Group
Most of Washington really works this way. Homeland Security had better read this one and take corrective action.” That’s what US Ambassador Michael Skol said about The Eighth Day. Readers with lower security clearances have been equally enthusiastic. Crystal Book Reviews called The Hammer of God “the best this reviewer has read in a long time.” Avitabile writes stunningly realistic thrillers filled with tension, humor, great characters, and a seemingly limitless imagination.
