Description

Kane himself is a very engaging character and he has many layers and he's very human despite his phenomenal skill set. He has vulnerabilities and fears just like everyone else and I think the character was very authentically written and just brilliant to read about and spend time with. The Year of the Locust is a story of bravery, hardship, sacrifice, endurance, evil and finally succeeding against all odds.

The consequences for the eight men and two women who were unmasked as a result of our asset’s betrayal were far more catastrophic. They appeared before a judge in a late-night trial and the next day workmen started to assemble ten towering construction cranes in one of Tehran’s largest squares. While members of the public didn’t pay much attention at first, their purpose soon became clear: it was to ensure that as many people as possible could witness the court’s sentence being carried out. In many countries in the Middle East it is not enough that people are punished; everybody else must be warned. The Guards, in unison, pushed the prisoners forward. Ten pairs of feet left the wooden platforms and an involuntary gasp went up from the crowd. The relatives and friends watched shoes and sandals rain down as the victims fell through the air.I Am Pilgrim' is a twelve-course meal of a thriller.... A breathtaking accomplishment of a debut.'--Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times bestselling author of Tell No Lies
