Reviewed on Richard & Judy on 12th July 2006.
This is a real high-concept thriller in the making and I’m 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 you’re hooked, and it won’t take long, you’ll 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 Michael Cordy.

Synopsis

The Righteous Men by Sam Bourne

Someone is killing good people. Why?

A series of murders as far apart as the backstreets of New York, the crowded slums of India and the pristine beaches of Cape Town can't be connected. Can they?

Rookie New York Times reporter Will Monroe thinks not - until his beautiful wife Beth is kidnapped. The men holding her seem ready to kill without hesitation.

Desperate, Will follows a sinister trail that leads to a mysterious cult, fanatical followers of one of the world's oldest religions - right on his own doorstep. Now he must unravel ancient prophecies and riddles buried deep in the Bible to find a secret worth killing for, a secret on which the fate of humanity may depend. But with more victims dying every hour and each clue wrapped in layers of code, time is running out ...

Reviews

‘The biggest challenger to Dan Brown’s crown … a highly charged, theologically accurate tale’ Mirror

‘Compulsive reading … successfully blends ancient teachings with the highly charged ways of the 21st century … bears all the hallmarks of a blockbuster’ Daily Express
