Publisher's Summary

Including an exclusive interview with the author.

John Carr has recently left the SAS, after a long and distinguished career, and is now working for a Russian oligarch in the murky world of private security.

But an incident from his past - in which three terrorists were brutally killed - suddenly comes back to haunt him.

Tracked by a hit man out for revenge, John Carr is forced to step over the line to defend himself and his family. It's a cruel and violent world - and one he thought he'd left behind.

But some wars never end.

Patriot Games meets Taken in Once a Pilgrim. John Carr shows all the Reacher-esque hallmarks of a cold-blooded antihero doing what needs to be done, whatever the consequences.

James Deegan MC is a fantastic new voice in the thriller genre, writing with unprecedented authority and authenticity.

What the Critics Say

"As close as it gets to the real thing." (Mark 'Billy' Billingham, MBE, former SAS Warrant Officer and star of TV's SAS: Who Dares Wins)

"Authentic detail and heart stopping narrative grips you from the outset bringing the shadowy world of today's special forces bursting in to life in a way that other authors of the genre couldn't hope for. The best thriller I've read in years." (Major Chris Hunter, QGM, author of Eight Lives Down and Extreme Risk)

"Exposes the raw with the reality. This is a gripping high intensity drama." (Bob Shepherd, ex SAS Warrant Officer and best-selling author)

    "Solid"
    Where does Once a Pilgrim rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right up there. I've been a fan of McNab/Ryan/Leather for their SAS stories but this is a breath of fresh air. Can't wait for the next one.

    "Brilliant debut novel by James Deegan"

    this is by some distance the best debut novel of its genre I have read in years.. I'm no great fan of the McNab/Ryan novels which seem to lack on several layers but Pilgrim really hit hard with pacey delivery and red hot action making it a gripping page turner.. The protagonist, John Carr is a more believable character than others such as Reacher. He is somewhat flawed but ultimately a force for good. I can't wait for the follow up.

    "Excellent narrator, excellent book."

    I thought the book was fantastic. The story itself is dark and gritty and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the genre or has a interest in the SAS or the Armed Forces.
