Summary
Pilgrim is the code name for a world class and legendary secret agent. His adversary is known only as the Saracen. As a young boy, the Saracen saw his dissident father beheaded in a Saudi Arabian public square, creating a burning desire to destroy the special relationship between the US and the Kingdom. When a woman's body is found in a seedy hotel near Ground Zero, the techniques are pulled from a cult classic of forensic science that Pilgrim wrote under a pen name. In offering the NYPD assistance with the case, Pilgrim gets pulled back into the intelligence underground
Summary
Suspense Fiction. This explosive thriller starts with the perfect murder -- the victim has had her teeth removed, her identifiable features have been destroyed by acid, and the scene has been liberally sprayed with DNA-destroying disinfectant. But more alarmingly, a jihadist is building a biological weapon he's planning on letting loose in the U.S. The connection between the two is Pilgrim, a retired CIA operative, who's called in to stop the terrorist -- and whose textbook on criminal investigations may have been the blueprint for the murder. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
