Publisher's Summary

National Book Awards 2014: Crime/Thriller Book of the Year
Can you commit the perfect crime?
Pilgrim is the code name for a man who doesn't exist. The adopted son of a wealthy American family, he once headed up a secret espionage unit for US intelligence. Before he disappeared into anonymous retirement, he wrote the definitive book on forensic criminal investigation. But that book will come back to haunt him. It will help NYPD detective Ben Bradley track him down. And it will take him to a run-down New York hotel room where the body of a woman is found facedown in a bath of acid, her features erased, her teeth missing, her fingerprints gone. It is a textbook murder - and Pilgrim wrote the book.
What begins as an unusual and challenging investigation will become a terrifying race against time to save America from oblivion. Pilgrim will have to make a journey from a public beheading in Mecca to a deserted ruin on the Turkish coast via a Nazi death camp in Alsace and the barren wilderness of the Hindu Kush in search of the faceless man who would commit an appalling act of mass murder in the name of his god.
This is now the entire audiobook, not in two parts.

Insulting pricing policy, misogynistic plot

Really expected more from this, it's mock 90s Frederick Forsyth spy thriller where the Americans are heroes the 'Arabs' are all villains and the Europeans are complicit or prostitutes depending on gender. Some very offencive stereotypes, and early scene of the innocent daughter of a Swiss banker being threatened with rape and death by the US government is really unpleasant but seems to have been written as if the reader will totally understand that the ends justify the ends. To reach the 10 hour mark and be told that you need to pay another credit to finish the story is high arrogance... I will not be finishing the story.

Less stars because 2nd book to required!!

What did you like best about I Am Pilgrim, Volume 1? What did you like least?

American hero who is wonderful at everything but entertainingly so, lots of rambling subplots that will, I presume, all come together brilliantly. UNFORTUNATELY I must presume because I find that I have buy a second volume to complete the story!! first volume is not a stand alone book!
Not made clear at the time of purchase - naughty practice Audible two credits required,
you could be losing a loyal long time customer.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Would I have to go to see two films?
