The Final Reckoning

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


When a security guard at the UN shoots a harmless old man mistakenly suspected of being a suicide bomber, Tom Byrne—a long way from his days as an idealistic young lawyer—is called in to placate the man’s family, including his daughter, Rebecca. But Tom soon discovers that the victim was not quite as innocent as he seemed and his is the latest in a chain of hundreds of unexplained deaths linked to a powerful brotherhood. Pursued by ruthless killers, Tom must unlock a secret buried for more than sixty years—the last great secret of World War II. Based on the true story of a group of Holocaust survivors that sought revenge for Nazi crimes, The Final Reckoning is an atmospheric, emotionally engaging and twisting thriller that moves at warp speed from first page to last.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 04, 2010 – British author Bourne (the pseudonym of Jonathan Freedland) wisely eschews another foray into Da Vinci Code territory, like The Righteous Men or The Last Testament, in this solid suspense novel focused on the recent past. Former U.N. lawyer Tom Byrne gets an early morning phone call from his old boss, Henning Munchau, who wants Tom back for one more job. A guard at the U.N. building has just shot a suspected terrorist who was thought to be a suicide bomber, except it turns out that this supposed terrorist is Gerald Merton, a 77-year-old Lithuanian Holocaust survivor who as a child fought the Nazis as part of the Jewish underground. When Byrne investigates, he finds that Merton is not as innocent as he appears, and that his visit to the U.N. concerns a great secret that spans the years from the end of WWII to the present. Happily, Bourne has tightened up his writing and toned down the feverish pace and purple prose of his earlier work.
