The Righteous Men Summary


The Righteous Men by Sam Bourne

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...

The Righteous Men Reviews


`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
