I Am Pilgrim is an action-packed spy thriller that has received rave reviews from the literary community.
We were very lucky to have a customer who loved the title so much, he sent in this review!

A fast paced thriller into the deep dark world of secret intelligence, terrorism and murder. Pilgrim, a former senior operative in an extremely secretive intelligence agency is again drawn into the secret world to prevent a terrorist obsessed with mass destruction. The story has a parallel tangent with a series of unexplainable murders in which Pilgrim is intrinsically involved.
A real page turner, this is a believable, descriptive and fast moving novel.

Book-A-Like: The Bourne Identity & I Am Pilgrim

They are the men who don't exist. Men of action.
Men with uncertain futures.

Processed with Moldiv He was dragged from the sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues: a frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the skin of his hip; evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face; strange things he says in his delirium, which could be code words. And a number on the film negative that leads to a bank account in Zurich, four million dollars and a name for the amnesiac: Jason Bourne.
Now he is running for his life. A man with an unknown past and an uncertain future, the target of assassins and at the heart of a deadly puzzle. He's fighting for survival and no one can help him - except the one woman who once wanted to escape him... - The Bourne Identity, Robert Ludlum

Pilgrim is the codename for a man who doesn't exist. The adopted son of a wealthy American family, he once headed up a secret espionage unit for US intelligence. Before he disappeared into anonymous retirement, he wrote the definitive book on forensic criminal investigation.
But that book will come back to haunt him. It will help NYPD detective Ben Bradley track him down. And it will take him to a rundown New York hotel room where the body of a woman is found facedown in a bath of acid, her features erased, her teeth missing, her fingerprints gone. It is a textbook murder - and Pilgrim wrote the book.
What begins as an unusual and challenging investigation will become a terrifying race-against-time to save America from oblivion. Pilgrim will have to make a journey from a public beheading in Mecca to a deserted ruins on the Turkish coast via a Nazi death camp in Alsace and the barren wilderness of the Hindu Kush in search of the faceless man who would commit an appalling act of mass murder in the name of his God. - I Am Pilgrim, Terry Hayes

When I was first given a copy of this book I felt there was no way I was going to make a commitment to a 760 page blockbuster as I normally prefer the 400 page fast fiction that fills our shelves. 100 pages into the book and I was already concerned that it just wasn’t going to be long enough and certainly at page 700, I was enjoying every page and wishing there were another 700 left. It a big statement to say the best book I’ve ever read, however I will say that I have never read a book that I enjoyed more.
