LoveReading Expert Review of I Am Pilgrim

Winner of the Crime/Thriller Book of the Year at the Specsavers National Book Awards 2014.

Shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger - Thriller of the Year 2014.

A smashing first novel from the screenwriter of DEAD CALM and the MAD MAX movies, this has been hyped as in the footsteps of Day of the Jackal, Silence of the Lambs, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and other recognised landmark classics of the thriller genre and, for once, this is no exaggeration! The gripping tale of the cat and mouse and high octane chase of a terrorist by one of the most alluring and enigmatic loner sleuths since Jack Reacher, this is an unputdownable thriller for the 21st Century that will have you sweating and gasping all the way to its explosive conclusion. Memorable characters, always the unexpected, non-stop action, this is a first class excursion behind the often murky scenes of international spying and all its ambiguities, with a villain whose evil knows no bounds but whose motives are none the less understandable and stem from human error and a hero whose talents are dazzling but somehow retains his humanity. Add the scariest of female serial killers, the bad lands of Afghanistan, biological warfare and forensic minutiae and you get what could become the thriller of the year, let alone the month.

 

The Lovereading view...

A wonder of a debut thriller, a must read.  The author is a film scriptwriter and you really can see the film developing here frame by frame or, at least, short chapter by short chapter.  It concerns a dedicated and very clever terrorist who from the day, as a teenager, he watched his father’s execution to a father himself he swore to seriously hurt America.  He is persuaded by a wonderful undercover agent, a man “who doesn’t exist”.  Running alongside this is the investigation into the murder of a girl in New York just post 9/11.  This is the best thriller I have read since The Day of the Jackal.  It is a seminal work, a remarkable book where you care as much for the villain as you do his pursuer.
