I Am Pilgrim

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 5.22.54 PMThis is a terrific summer read for mystery/thriller fans. Terry Hayes, the writer of the Mad Max films and many TV shows,has ventured into novel form with this long page turner. Scott Murdoch, the antihero, a former member of the Division (supersecret US agency that assasinates bad guys), has turned to crime forensics, but is drawn back into two different stories, one a NY murder and the other a terrorist plot. Watching the wonderful characters Hayes has Murdoch interact with, and seeing the two strains come together, will keep you glued to the book as I was. It’s a little like early great Ludlum, but with more inrtrospection adn erudition. I loved it.
