Time and time again, Philip Kerr succeeds in writing morally complex thrillers, evidenced perfectly in his renowned Berlin Noir trilogy. In his latest novel, Prayer, we meet special Agent Gil Martins, an investigator of domestic terrorism for the FBI. Once a religious man, Gil is now on the brink of losing his faith – the very nature of his job leads him to question the existence of a God who could allow the violence he witnesses every day. Then, a series of unexplained deaths brings Gil’s crisis of faith into frightening focus.
Prayer is an exceptionally gripping thriller, written by a true master.
