I Am Pilgrim: A Thriller (Paperback)
June 2014 Indie Next List
“A fast-paced, chillingly believable suspense novel, I Am Pilgrim draws the reader completely into a shadowy world where U.S. intelligence is pitted against a modern terrorist on a more terrifying mission than that of a mere suicide bomber. Hayes compellingly depicts the desperation of the main characters, both the good and the evil, with a fine line dividing the two. This is a book whose style and storyline will haunt you for a long time.”
— Carolyn Chesser, Bayou Book Company, Niceville, FL
