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.
- Terry Hayes
If you can get past the first 80 pages it becomes a real page turner but brace yourself for spoon fed plot points, cheesy dialogue especially between Whisperer and Pilgrim (‘Best damn agent there is’) and OTT detective work.
It will undoubtedly become a movie as it has that action movie feel plus it was written by the writer of Mad Max 2 and Dead Calm.
A big book at 600 pages + but if you can get a copy in a second hand shop or get one given you could do a lot worse than enter Pilgrims world . . . the best damn agent there is.(3.0 / 5)
