A series of brutal murders around the globe … an ancient prophecy of the end of the world … an international bestseller in the blockbuster tradition of The Last Templar

New York Times reporter Will Monroe’s investigation of a rash of seemingly random killings takes a dark and dangerous turn when his wife is kidnapped by shadowy enemies who want him to stop. Desperate to save his wife, Will follows the clues into the heart of New York’s Hassidic community, and learns that the stakes of his quest are higher then he could ever imagine. As the death toll rises, he enlists an eccentric Kabbalah expert to decode his wife’s captors’ cryptic messages. The trail they pursue leads inexorably to a set of ancient texts and a prophecy that will save the world … or destroy all of life as we know it.

What will happen when the one secret that has kept the world safe for thousands of years is revealed to all? In The Righteous Men, a blistering, high-concept thriller filled with mystery, romance and suspense, Sam Bourne takes listeners deep into the hidden worlds of fundamentalist religion, mysticism and biblical prophecies, in a visionary tale as frightening as it is entertaining.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A sweaty-palm roller-coaster ride through the dark side…compelling.” 

    Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author

  • “The best thriller I’ve read in years.” 

    Piers Morgan

  • “Compulsive reading…successfully blends ancient teachings with the highly charged ways of the twenty-first century…bears all the hallmarks of a blockbuster.”

    Daily Express (London)

  • “Our pop-cultural obsession with The Da Vinci Code continues to breed more religious-historical thrillers. Bourne’s novel, which draws its inspiration from the Jewish rather than the Christian tradition, is one of the better ones…Always twisting and turning, Bourne’s novel takes readers on a dramatic, full-throttle adventure.” 


  • “A kitchen sink of arcane elements—twisted biblical prophecy, Oedipal complex, computer-hacker sabotage—together with such thriller staples as kidnapping and serial-killer psychodynamics makes this…a riveting mess…Murder mystery meets conspiracy theory meets theological commentary.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Renata | 2/13/2014

    " This is my first book I read by Bourne. I would say that it was a good, easy read. The story line flow nicely, but there's not much surprise in this book. It was OK, that's all I can say. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kirsty (Blatant Biblioholic) | 2/8/2014

    " I enjoyed this book, the writing was good - on a par with The Da Vince Code, if not better - and the plot itself was interesting. The only problem is that there are some very slow parts in the middle, which made me want to throw the book at the wall in frustration. For this reason it was easy to put this book down. Overall though it was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Zoe | 2/7/2014

    " I enjoyed this book quite a lot, right up until the ending. Then it became predictable twaddle. I'd recommend it if you don't mind being disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Thomas Couper | 2/5/2014

    " Draws you in so you keep going. Thoroughly enjoyable read "
