I Am Pilgrim: A Thriller (CD-Audio)
Email or call for price.
A razor sharp New York City Cop, a retired operative from a clandestine government group so secret very few even know they exist, and a devout Muslim who feels his people are held under the yoke of oppressive, immoral regimes propped up by the US Government, the threads of their lives will come together in shocking ways. I was surprised at how quickly this story drew me in and engaged me. While there are villains, the main characters carry the story and they are richly complex. These are guys who want to be good men but find they are often faced with the absolute necessity of doing harm in the service of a greater good. It starts with a gruesome murder in New York, moves back in time to Paris, travels to Turkey and hits a few more stops along the way. The plot takes twists and turns that keep the reader guessing to the very end.— Deon Stonehouse

“A fast-paced, chillingly believable suspense novel, I Am Pilgrim draws the reader completely into a shadowy world where U.S. intelligence is pitted against a modern terrorist on a more terrifying mission than that of a mere suicide bomber. Hayes compellingly depicts the desperation of the main characters, both the good and the evil, with a fine line dividing the two. This is a book whose style and storyline will haunt you for a long time.”
