9780007203284: The Righteous Men

The Number One bestseller. A religious conspiracy thriller like no other. The end of the world is coming – one body at a time…

A pimp is found dead in a rough New York neighbourhood. A far-right extremist is fatally shot at his remote log cabin outside Seattle. An eighteen-year-old computer hacker is murdered on his way home from working at a call centre in India. One thing unites these victims. All had, at some point in their largely wasted and grubby lives, performed an act of exceptional goodness. Someone is murdering good people. Why?

For rookie journalist Will Monroe, in his first week on the crime beat for the New York Times, the story is a gift, the launch pad for a glittering career. But then his wife Beth is kidnapped, and the riddle becomes personal.

When he starts receiving cryptic messages from the kidnappers, who warn him not to involve the police, Will realizes he needs serious help. The rebellious ex-girlfriend he hasn't seen for five years might be the person Will least wants to see right now, but he knows that if anyone can break the kidnappers' code, it's her. And if TC can help save Beth then he has no alternative but to beg for her help. But as Will and TC piece together the clues, it becomes apparent that the kidnappers are motivated by a far higher calling than simple greed…

Review:

‘The best thriller I’ve read in years.’ Piers Morgan

‘The biggest challenger to Dan Brown’s crown … a highly charged, theologically accurate tale’ Mirror

‘Compulsive reading … successfully blends ancient teachings with the highly charged ways of the 21st century … bears all the hallmarks of a blockbuster’ Daily Express

'More readable than The Da Vinci Code – the sense of menace is darker and the characters more believable' Esquire

‘A turbocharged thriller’ In Style

‘Will be compared, inevitably, to The Da Vinci Code. The similarities are difficult to ignore, but it’s far better written … will thrill any conspiracy-theory fans … a highly enjoyable read’ Psychologies
