This week’s review: I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green was again the week’s Payot top seller. Having already reviewed it, Le News instead looks at the third highest entry, I Am Pilgrim, the debut novel by former journalist and screen-writer, Terry Hayes. It was published in July 2013 in the United Kingdom. Pilgrim is the codename for a man who doesn’t exist. 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 has been found. What begins as an unusual and challenging investigation will become a terrifying race-against-time to save America from oblivion. He has to find a faceless man who would commit an appalling act of mass murder in the name of his God.
