Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hayes delivers muscular prose, sniper-round accurate dialogue, and enough superb and original plotting to fill three volumes. He balances it all with the dexterity of the accomplished storyteller that he so obviously is. I Am Pilgrim is simply one of the best suspense novels I’ve read in a long time.” David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Mr. Hayes’s globe-trotting book has more kicks, twists, and winks than anything of its dusty genre has provided in a long time. You will be happily surprised to find a new thriller franchise with brains to match its brawn.” New York Times
“Thriller of the Week. Delivers thrills and spills…A full tilt mix of Homeland, The Wire and The Bourne Ultimatum.” Mail on Sunday
“Massive in many senses, but none more so than its ability to exert a vice-like grip on the reader....Destined to be spy thriller of the year.” Irish Independent
“Riveting.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Screenwriter and producer Hayes makes his fiction debut with an exceptional thriller that boasts an utterly credible narrator who has had so many covert identities he can barely remember his original name. Soul-weary Scott Murdoch (aka the Pilgrim) has retired from the top echelon of ultrasecret espionage, but duty and faith in the human spirit call him back into service…Like many pilgrimages, this one is painfully long and packed with unexpected menace, its glimpses of the goal fitful and far between, but readers will agree that this journey of body and soul is well worth the effort.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The characters are skillfully brought to life in this action-packed worldwide adventure, and Pilgrim is a quick-witted and thoroughly fascinating protagonist…Simply unputdownable.” Booklist (starred review)
“Sure, the race against time to save the world has been done before but seldom this well. Once you start this taut and muscular thriller, you won’t be able to put it down.” Library Journal (starred review)

Story

Interesting facts in a flat and unconvincing story

While the story builds on some pretty interesting information, it is sorely lacking in literary prowess. The characters are flat, inconsistent and unconvincing, the story has some obvious holes in it. Worst are the sentimental soul searching scenes where the otherwise tough battle hardened veteran agonizes completely out of character over 9/11 victims.

If you like Dan Brown and do not mind that this attempt to mimic him is not very well executed, you may like this book. For me it was certainly not the right cup of tee.
