In 500 BC a mysterious ship appeared off the coast of what is now Italy. A man disembarked to address the frightened crowd along the shore. He called himself Pythagoras, and when he was done speaking, a thousand men and women abandoned their lives to follow him; his disciples would influence western philosophy, science, and mathematics for all time.

Chicago, the present. Solomon Gold has tapped into valuable and dangerous secrets while composing his magnum opus: the Gold Completion of Mozart’s infamous unfinished requiem. After he is murdered, his brilliant daughter—a girl whose uncanny mental gifts have left her both powerful and troubled—finds herself racing to understand his composition, his murder, and, as violence erupts all around her, a fractured, ancient cult descended from the original disciples of Pythagoras.

The Thousand is ringing confirmation of Kevin Guilfoile’s enormous talent.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dana Calleja | 1/29/2014

    " Not as good as his other book, but a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Christine | 1/28/2014

    " Interesting, if not exactly compelling. Too many plot points were dropped, while others were belabored. Still, a worthwhile read if you like the "secret society" theme. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Denise Eggleston | 1/20/2014

    " The book started well. I liked the characters and wanted to see what this "thousand" was all about. Somehow the wheels fell off in the last half. It became a chase book, a conspiracy book, a frustrated cop book, and a mommy issues book--all at the same time. No part was given the attention it deserved. I wished the author would have picked one tact and followed through. "
