Simon's interview

Listen to Simon chat with author Terry Hayes about writing his debut book, and making the transition from screenwriter to novelist.

About the Book

An espionage novel, a serial killer thriller, a deep dive into real world geopolitik, it’s a race against time, it’s one man’s life story. I Am Pilgrim is a gripping page turner, and could almost be several novels in one. A truly extraordinary read.
