I created the Clock Reading Challenge a few years ago and it's still going strong. You can find all the info about this years Clock Reading Challenge here, if you'd like more details about the challenge and how to join the 2023 edition.

I've already done a post in the past with Books with Numbers 1-12 in the Title but wanted to do more detailed posts for each number and offer even more ideas for books to choose from.

Nine Lives by Tom Barber

Nine Lives by Tom Barber

It’s New Year’s Eve. A major terrorist cell is planning a series of attacks across London over the next forty-eight hours. The government has surveillance on the group, a man undercover, and prepare to move in, to take out the terrorists before they can strike. But they lose contact with their inside man. And the cell vanishes into thin air, dispersing into the streets, armed and intent on completing their assault on London. The best Counter-Terrorist teams in the country are told to take them down before it's too late.

Nine terrorists.

Nine lives.

The Armed Response Unit is one of these teams. Efficient and ruthless, the task force is ordered to locate the leader of the cell. As they hunt him down, they begin to realise that this is far bigger than any of them could ever have imagined. Bombings, rocket attacks, betrayal and a series of unexpected and shocking twists leave the ARU fighting to stay alive.

There's Archer, the youngest member of the team, keen to prove himself and justify his spot on the task force. His best friend, Chalky, who is forced to fight both the terrorists and his own demons. Porter, Deakins and Fox, tough and experienced men who’ve never dealt with anything of this magnitude. And Mac, their sergeant, who must make the quickest of decisions and lead his men against the invisible enemy.

As events unfold, other people are drawn into the danger. The Prime Minister, desperately trying to find a solution and protect the capital. A mysterious female Mossad agent, who appears out of nowhere and joins the fight against the cell. Two Special Agents from the DEA, one of whom was a member of the SEAL team that stormed Osama Bin Laden’s compound and who for some reason is struggling with the memory. And the vicious, powerful leader of a Middle Eastern drug cartel, who operates in the shadows and is somehow connected to the terrorists.

With crowds all over London celebrating the New Year, and with nine terrorists somewhere amongst them, the Armed Response Unit is faced with the most dangerous night of their lives. As the savage, shocking plans of the enemy are fully revealed, the ARU officers are faced with the ultimate question.
How many times can a man cheat Death before Death evens the score?

Nine O'Clock Bus To Brompton by Kevin Fitzpatrick

The quiet village of Brompton is shaken when the body of former sex worker Suzanne Hoskins is discovered in Bluebell Wood. To add to the mystery, her husband Steven has disappeared.

PC Don Barton's life seems to be going nowhere. Moved from the coveted motorcycle section to a rural beat as a result of misconduct, he is morosely standing by as his career passes before him.

Soon, his quiet life as a village bobby is shattered, as he enters a world of pornography, S&M, drug dealing and terrorism. But can Don find the killer before more lives are lost, and redeem himself?

Nine Eleven: Time Patrol by Bob Mayer

Nine Eleven: Time Patrol by Bob Mayer


Nine-Eleven 9 A.D.: Three Roman legions are annihilated by an alliance of Germanic tribes; the Romans would never again attempt to expand east of the Rhine River. What if the Romans won?

Nine-Eleven 1973: A military coup in Chile, engineered by the United States, topples the elected President and brings Pinochet to power. What if the coup fails?

Nine-Eleven 1857: 120 emigrants are slaughtered by Mormons in the Mountain Meadows Massacre in Utah. What if it was worse than that?

Nine-Eleven 1776: Benjamin Franklin and John Adams sit down with British Admiral Howe on Staten Island to discuss a possible peace settlement. What if they succeed?

Nine-Eleven 2001: while the world is focused on the United States, the largest plane in the world is carrying the largest nuclear weapon ever made across Russia; but disappears. Who took it? Where is it?

And then there is the most mysterious mission of all, where a Time Patrol agent must go into the Patrol’s own recent history to insure it even exists.

The Shadow's plan is to disrupt our time-line, creating a time tsunami and wiping our present out.

It is up to the Time Patrol to make sure that doesn’t happen!
