Waterstones Says

The author of the cult phenomenon I Am Pilgrim ratchets up the stakes in an eagerly-awaited blockbuster that promises the same calibre of high-octane tension and plenty of unexpected twists besides.

A Financial Times Best Thriller of the Year 2023

If, like Kane, you're a Denied Access Area spy for the CIA, then boundaries have no meaning. Your function is to go in, do whatever is required, and get out again - by whatever means necessary. You know when to run, when to hide - and when to shoot.

But some places don't play by the rules. Some places are too dangerous, even for a man of Kane's experience. The badlands where the borders of Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan meet are such a place - a place where violence is the only way to survive.

Kane travels there to exfiltrate a man with vital information for the safety of the West - but instead he meets an adversary who will take the world to the brink of extinction. A frightening, clever, vicious man with blood on his hands and vengeance in his heart...

“I Am Pilgrim was fantastic, this is garbage”

Very strange book as starts well but get progressively worse. Don't even both with final chapter 4, which is almost like written by a different author.
Such a shame after the marvelous I Am Pilgrim.

“Even better than its predecessor!”

After such a long wait, it's a trepidatious reader that approaches this novel, desperately hoping it will not only match the thrills and sheer readability of I Am Pilgrim, but somehow surpass them. I am very... More
