Description
(Named Suspense Magazine's Best Book of 2014) In New York City an anonymous young woman is found murdered in a run-down hotel, all identifying characteristics dissolved by acid. In the blistering heat of a Saudi Arabian square, a father is publicly beheaded. A notorious Syrian biotech expert is found eyeless in a Damascus junkyard. These crimes are all linked, in Terry Hayes's gripping, breakneck thriller. A man known as Pilgrim has retired from the CIA, and has penned a textbook on criminal investigations—and it seems someone has read it. Homicide detective Ben Bradley knows Pilgrim personally, and knows that his friend is the only one who can solve this case, before a biological terror is unleashed.

"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."—NYTimes

"Once you start this taut and muscular thriller, you won't be able to put it down."—Library Journal (starred review)

"Pilgrim, retired and reclusive, is drawn into the case by Bradley and is quickly in the middle of an international manhunt moving through the United Kingdom, France, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan. This is more than just a murder mystery; there is also a biological threat against the U.S., which ties into the murder. The characters are skillfully brought to life in this action-packed worldwide adventure, and Pilgrim is a quick-witted and thoroughly fascinating protagonist.... The story is tightly plotted, and the pages fly by ferociously fast. Simply unputdownable."—Booklist (starred review)
