So Far 'I Am Pilgrim' Is the Best Book of 2014
Debut Author. The rooms has been sprayed with DNA-eradictaing spray. A terrorist, known only as The Arab, was radicalised when, as a young boy, he witnessed the beheading of his father in a public square in Saudi Arabia. He has dedicated his life to destroying the special relationship between the Kingdom and the United States. He learnt his trade fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan, and now from hiding in Germany plots a terrible act of mass murder.
When NYPD detective Ben Bradley tracks down Pilgrim, neither man can imagine the terrifying journey they are about to begin, as what begins as an unusual and challenging murder investigation leads them into a direct collision course with the dark forces of jihadist terrorism. Delivers thrills and spills The plot twists and turns like a python in a sack.
The style is visceral, gritty and cinematic Great nail-biting stuff!
I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes - Penguin Books Australia
It's a murder mystery, an illuminating account of contemporary international politics and a study of an unusual man With a stunning sense of plot, beautifully detailed writing, huge ambition and even huger talent, Hayes has produced one of the most memorable novels of recent times. A scary trip through the shadowy world of international espionage. However this is both scathing and self-deprecatory as well as sympathetic or defensive, and it is always contained within the accepted narrative bias of the characters themselves. Conversely, even the apparent bad guys, including murderers and Jihadi terrorists manage to attract some level of sympathy and understanding.
Against all odds of the big screen movie villain style script, these characters receive a welcome amount of exposition and perspective. Nothing in this novel happens without rhyme nor reason.
At times there are difficult truths and historical facts delivered that may rattle some feathers, this is delivered without apology. Whilst there is over-the-top heroism at times, nobody walks away whole, no good deed goes unpunished. Gerard likes to jump between Sci-fi novella's and professional business related books. He's either reading about future tech, or trying to build it.
