[Feb. 2018--P.S.: Author James Patterson's book, "Instinct" (formerly "Murder Games"), will be the basis for a new TV series, "Instinct", on CBS this March. Patterson's book was originally published in 2017, Hayes' in 2013. The premise is virtually identical: An author and university professor comes out of retirement as a CIA operative when a NYPD detective asks for his help--the serial killer is using the professor's book as a tutorial. This makes me wonder about the originality of Patterson's novel, since it was published 4 years past Hayes' novel. In any case, Hayes is a MUCH better writer, engaging one in a complex globe-trekking thriller. If you want to choose between the two books, pick "I am Pilgrim". Brilliant!]
So, because of this book and Mr. Hayes, I have become a fan of thrillers. But I expect that I will have been ruined for any others because this one has it all: incredible locations, a dynamic protagonist, a multi-faceted villain, and an ever-challenging plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way. Therefore, I will probably not venture into other thrillers. And I won’t have to since Mr. Hayes has a sequel to I Am Pilgrim coming out May 1, 2016.
I’m definitely not giving up on Guido. As a matter of fact, I would highly recommend all of those mystery books starting with the first one called Murder at La Fenice. I’ve read five of them and intend to read the rest. But those are a different genre—called a police procedural. I Am Pilgrim is an international thriller that grabs you from the get-go and doesn’t let go. And the best thing is that the author’s writing style is so fluid that you race along with him, his hero, and his diabolical plots. There are also surprises galore, especially at the end, and numerous plot twists, virtues for all thriller fans.
I believe, you will find that the Pilgrim is a hero for our cynical and apathetic world. His brave adventures in this riveting tale are highly recommended.
