The Number One bestseller. A religious conspiracy thriller like no other. The end of the world is coming -- one body at a time! Two murders at opposite ends of America, one in the backstreets of New York City, the other in the backwoods of Montana. A series of killings in every corner of the globe, from the crowded slums of India to the pristine beaches of Cape Town. There can't possibly be a connection. That's the instinct of Will Monroe, a young, British-born reporter for The New York Times -- until the morning his beautiful wife Beth is kidnapped. Holding her are men who seem ready to kill without hesitation. Desperate, Will follows a trail that leads to a mysterious sect right on his own doorstep -- fervent followers of one of mankind's oldest faiths. He will have to break through multiple layers of mysticism and ancient prophecy, unearthing riddles buried deep in the Bible -- until he finds the secret that is said to have animated the world for thousands of years, a secret on which the fate of humanity may depend. But with more murders by the hour, and each clue wrapped in layers of code, time is running out!

Sam Bourne is a pseudonym for Jonathan Freedland, an award-winning journalist and broadcaster. He writes a weekly column in the Guardian, as well as a monthly piece for the Jewish Chronicle. He also presents BBC Radio 4's contemporary history series, The Long View. In the annual What the Papers Say awards of 2002 Jonathan Freedland was named Columnist of the Year and praised for his incisive, original, strong and very outspoken views. He lives in London with his wife and their two children. 'The Righteous Men' is his first novel.From AudioFile:
Dennis Boutsikaris relates a story of dark intrigue with stylish articulation of diverse characters around the world, using distinct Jewish accents and lyrical tones to set characters apart. For Will Monroe, stories in the NEW YORK TIMES of righteous men being murdered worldwide are at first simply curious. When his pregnant wife is kidnapped, it becomes personal. Dennis Boutsikaris's delivery conveys a sense of mystery and terror that ratchets up the tension. A relentless chase begins that involves New York's Hassidic community, strange Kabbalah experts, and the identity of The Apostle, only whispered about in legends. Boutsikaris excels, yet he cannot overcome Monroe's unsympathetic character and a plot filled with unlikely coincidences.
