I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes
I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes
I won't provide a summary of the plot in my review as this can be obtained in the Product Description of the book on Amazon, Goodreads, etc. Iíll just say that what starts off as a very challenging murder investigation turns into a break-neck race against time by the former head of a secret US government organization to try to stop a terrorist attack that could bring the US to the brink of disaster.

On the plus side, typical of a Steinhauer book, is that his characterizations in The Cairo Affair are top-notch, with all of his characters (of which there are many) being fully developed and come across as very "real" people. What they are not, however, are likable; which, as a result, made me not care very much about what happens to them. Also, typical of a Steinhauer book, is a very descriptive sense of place, making me feel that I was right there in whatever location the… Read more
