I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes

MGM has optioned the spy thriller I Am Pilgrim for film, potentially the first in a franchise. Terry Hayes, the author, will also write the screenplay.

"In creating such an original character in such a riveting, relevant story, Terry has provided us a great template for not only one film, but for a series that can play to global audiences for many years to come," said Jonathan Glickman, MGM's motion picture group president.

More about this book, below …

In a seedy hotel near Ground Zero, a woman lies face down in a pool of acid, features melted off her face, teeth missing, fingerprints gone. The room has been sprayed down with DNA-eradicating antiseptic spray. All the techniques are pulled directly from a cult classic of forensic science written under a pen name by a man known as Pilgrim.

Pilgrim is the code name for a world class and legendary secret agent. His adversary is the Saracen. As a young boy, the Saracen barely sees his dissident father beheaded in a Saudi Arabian public square. But the event marks him for life and creates a burning desire to destroy the special relationship between the US and the Kingdom. Everything in the Saracen's life from this moment forward will be in service to jihad.

In offering the NYPD some casual assistance with the case, Pilgrim gets pulled back into the intelligence underground. The inevitable encounter between Pilgrim and the Saracen comes in Turkey, around the murder of a wealthy American.
