This is a real high-concept thriller in the making and Iâm told the pseudonym of a journalist writing for the Guardian. Extremism, dead bodies, coded and cryptic messages, kidnap and perhaps even a religious conspiracy provide for a brilliantly plotted serial-killer thriller. Once youâre hooked, and it wonât take long, youâll find it both breathtaking and unputdownable.

If you like Sam Bourne you might also like to read books by Dan Brown, P J Tracy and Robert Harris.

Synopsis

The Righteous Men by Sam Bourne

A pimp is found dead in a rough New York neighbourhood. A far-right extremist is fatally shot at his remote log cabin outside Seattle. An eighteen-year-old computer hacker is murdered on his way home from working at a call centre in India. One thing unites these victims. All had, at some point in their largely wasted and grubby lives, performed an act of exceptional goodness. Someone is murdering good people. Why?

For rookie journalist Will Monroe, in his first week on the crime beat for the New York Times, the story is a gift, the launch pad for a glittering career. But then his wife Beth is kidnapped, and the riddle becomes personal.

When he starts receiving cryptic messages from the kidnappers, who warn him not to involve the police, Will realizes he needs serious help. The rebellious ex-girlfriend he hasn't seen for five years might be the person Will least wants to see right now, but he knows that if anyone can break the kidnappers' code, it's her. And if TC can help save Beth then he has no alternative but to beg for her help. But as Will and TC piece together the clues, it becomes apparent that the kidnappers are motivated by a far higher calling than simple greed...
