Seven Unholy Days

Seven Unholy Days

Lunacy plus vast techno-resources make for a REALLY bad week for the world. That’s the premise for Jerry Hatchet’s exciting new thriller, SEVEN UNHOLY DAYS, just released today. It’s one of my favorite thrillers, a smart, fast, crisp page turner. Here’s what James Rollins—yes, the NYT & international bestselling author James Rollins—had to say about Seven Unholy Days:

“A simple glitch in a power grid heralds the beginning of a madman’s scheme to bring about a biblical apocalypse. Written in a staccato style that will leave readers breathless and flipping pages long into the night, Hatchett’s first novel, SEVEN UNHOLY DAYS, is a thriller not to be missed!”

And here’s Jerry Hatchet’s latest interview about his new thriller:

I: Where did the idea come from for Seven Unholy Days?

JH: After losing power for a couple of weeks in an ice storm, I became acutely aware of just how dependent we are on electric power and wanted to explore that issue in a story. From that seed the story grew into a techno-story peppered with deciphering ancient clues.

I: What genre does your book fall under?

JH: Thriller, specifically a technothriller.

I: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

LH: Matthew McConaughey would be a great Matt Decker (the main character). Jack Nicholson would be the ultimate actor for the villain.

I: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

JH: Lunacy plus vast techno-resources make for a REALLY bad week for the world.

I: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

JH: I worked on the first draft for about a year.

I: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

JH: I think readers of Daniel Suarez’s titles DAEMON and FREEDOM will find it particularly engaging, along with those who enjoy clue-driven tales like those by Dan Brown.

I: Who or What inspired you to write this book?

JH: There are a lot of authors whose work inspired and influenced but at the end of the day, I wanted to write a story I would love to read myself. I’m a big fan of Grisham’s crisp narratives, the clue chases of James Rollins, and the overall power to craft a compelling story of Nelson DeMille.

I: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

JH: Based on a lot of feedback from private readers, this is a story that grabs you early and never lets go. James Rollins did me the honor of reading it and told me it kept him up most of the night because he couldn’t put it down. It’s timely and very contemporary while also revolving around a hunt to find and decipher ancient clues. Give it a look!
