Synopsis

The Redemption From the Author of The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty

THE REDEMPTION opens in the world's most oppressive and isolated totalitarian state: Albania in the 1970s. A prisoner suspected of being an enemy agent is held by state security. An unsettling presence, he maintains an eerie silence though subjected to unimaginable torture. He escapes - and on the way to freedom, completes a mysterious mission. The prisoner is Dimiter, the American 'agent from hell'. The scene shifts to Jerusalem, focusing on Hadassah Hospital and a cast of unusual characters. All become enmeshed in a series of baffling, inexplicable deaths, until events explode in a surprising climax.

Reviews

The atmosphere is redolent of one of John le Carre's cold-war thrillers. . .Blatty's prose is stark, a minimalist style that adds momentum to the propulsive plot. . .a haunting tale that remains thought-provoking long after the final revelation * IRISH TIMES * Blatty expertly combines the mundane with the mystical, drawing together the diverse plot-lines in a page-turning spy-thriller which . . . keeps the reader cheering for the characters to the last page * Guardian * THE REDEMPTION is a cracker * SFX * The sense of ominous mystery that lasts until the final few pages will certainly keep people glued to it * Irish Independent *
