WIN I Am Pilgrim

By Lynsey


Every so often a book comes along that sets fire to the imagination. It’s impossible not to talk about it with everyone you meet. I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes is just such a book.

When asked to describe this masterful spy thriller we came up with the following… it’s what would happen if Frederick Forsyth’s The Day of the Jackal, Homeland and Jack Bauer’s 24 all sat down and created the perfect spy. That spy would be Pilgrim.

Debut novelist Terry Hayes has some pretty outstanding credentials, I Am Pilgrim may be his first book but he’s written for current affairs programs, TV and Films such as Payback, Flightplan and Cliffhanger. In all, he has won over twenty film or television awards.

About the book:

Can you commit the perfect crime?

Pilgrim is the codename for a man who doesn’t exist. The adopted son of a wealthy American family, he once headed up a secret espionage unit for US intelligence. Before he disappeared into anonymous retirement, he wrote the definitive book on forensic criminal investigation.

But that book will come back to haunt him. It will help NYPD detective Ben Bradley track him down. And it will take him to a rundown New York hotel room where the body of a woman is found facedown in a bath of acid, her features erased, her teeth missing, her fingerprints gone. It is a textbook murder – and Pilgrim wrote the book.

What begins as an unusual and challenging investigation will become a terrifying race-against-time to save America from oblivion. Pilgrim will have to make a journey from a public beheading in Mecca to a deserted ruins on the Turkish coast via a Nazi death camp in Alsace and the barren wilderness of the Hindu Kush in search of the faceless man who would commit an appalling act of mass murder in the name of his God.


We have five new hardbacks of this astounding book to giveaway! ENTER HERE

Winners will be announced on the 16th August – Good Luck!

Yes, I can commit the perfect crime! Who’s to say I haven’t, because being the perfect crime, I have of course got away with it. (Just joking, Scotland Yard!)

When entering the I am Pilgrim competition, my Web of Trust widget, throws up a warning about the website that I am being transferred to. Are you aware of any problems? Your normal competitions just allow you to enter name and address, but with this one you are transferred to another website, which my Mac system does not like. Any comments?
