Staff Reviews

This is the fastest 500+ page book I
have ever read, and I did not want it to end. The story and its
telling are both incredibly gripping. I Am Pilgrim is also one of
those books that can be whatever you want it to be - you can read it
like you would a summer beach ride and just go along for the ride, or
you can ask yourself the deeper questions Pilgrim and the jihadist
both struggle with - what is family, what is identity, where should
your loyalty be, and what do you do when you discover that you are
willing to do anything, no matter the price, to reach your goal. Let
me put it this way – if I didn't know Michael Koryta, Robert Crais,
and Jussi Adler-Olsen all have books coming out this year, I would be
ready to proclaim I Am Pilgrim the best thriller of 2014.  

This debut is THE thriller to read this
year. It's the perfect blend of smart, well-written espionage and a
police procedural. Also highly recommended by McKenna, Sally, Brenda, Mary!

“A fast-paced, chillingly believable suspense novel, I Am Pilgrim draws the reader completely into a shadowy world where U.S. intelligence is pitted against a modern terrorist on a more terrifying mission than that of a mere suicide bomber. Hayes compellingly depicts the desperation of the main characters, both the good and the evil, with a fine line dividing the two. This is a book whose style and storyline will haunt you for a long time.”
— Carolyn Chesser, Bayou Book Company, Niceville, FL
