Summary
"The astonishing story of one man's breakneck race against time . . . and an implacable enemy. An anonymous young woman murdered in a run-down hotel, all identifying characteristics dissolved by acid. A father publicly beheaded in the blistering heat of a Saudi Arabian public square. A notorious Syrian biotech expert found eyeless in a Damascus junkyard. Smoldering human remains on a remote mountainside in Afghanistan. A flawless plot to commit an appalling crime against humanity. One path links them all, and only one man can make the journey. Pilgrim" --
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
