An incredibly good and suspenseful book, I am Pilgrim reads like it is 300 pages instead of over 600. Don't let the length deter you, this book is non-stop action with a deep and all too realistic plot full of richly developed characters. Following Pilgrim around the globe as he is tasked with tracking down and stopping an unknown terrorist from unleashing a plague is a series of satisfying twists and revelations

Woah! The BEST thriller I have read so far. It has a very interesting narrative style with a web of ingeniously connected plot lines. Every character is well defined that you will be living in the world created by the author in no time. I recommend it to all mystery/thriller lovers.

a great read following the exploits of the Pilgrim as he tracks across Europe to find the terrorist who is planning to unleash a small pox virus on the US. The story is intricately woven, delightfully filled with action and espionage. A satifying read.

The author's other writings include the Mad Max movies, Dead Calm and Payback.

Terry Hayes has plenty experience writing for action movies. His first novel is loaded. I hope there is another.

An international spy thriller and murder mystery with some sympathetic, multi=faceted characters and thought-provoking plot lines. Lots of action. It jumped around in time and place, so it's not easy to read in small bites, but a great vacation read. I'm hoping this is the first in a series.
