TITLE: The Righteous Men

AUTHOR: Sam Bourne


DATE READ: August 2006

NOTES: Thriller set in US involving Brit newspaperman and Messianic prediction of Judaism. Fast moving and lots of intriguing clues and twists and turns involving murder of 36 righteous men. Involvement of Hassidics and Christian fundamentalists. Pacy but ultimately just a holiday read.

I chose to read this as I knew it had been written by Jonathan Freedland, an erudite Guardian writer. This book is definitely a dumbed down version of his writing! I should have been warned by the quote on the cover "The biggest challenger to Dan Brown's crown"......
