Pitir does it again! Some authors speak of genre bending, some authors prove it. After winning the 2015 Best Indie Book Award for Action/Adventure and receiving the B.R.A.G. Medallion, FACE OF OUR FATHER was just awarded the Bronze Medal for Popular Fiction by the 2016 eLit Awards.
This novel has it all. One part "The Bourne Identity," one part "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," and one part "The Notebook," this poignant tale leaves the reader haunted by its characters long after the novel's final page has turned. Stuart and Angela Pierce, like many disillusioned careerists, are busy reinventing their lives. Stu reduces his airline flying schedule to train for triathlons, while Angie escapes the daily horrors of a prosecutor's job to pursue pro bono work. But death threats soon prove that the only thing Angie escaped was the protective arm of the District Attorney's office. With a graphic photo of a ritual stoning Stu's only tangible clue, he sets out to protect a wife who refuses to protect herself. Obsessed with catching a murdering rapist, Angie plunges them both into a web of global intrigue. And half the globe away, Kashif, a young Afghan Mujahideen is caught up in a web of tribal intrigue, thrust into a bloody battle against the forces of the Great Satan, vying for the privilege of taking the battle to the American homeland. But who, indeed what, is the real enemy? Where lay, the truth? What is truly true? Honor. Love. Life. All are at stake as the far-flung webs soon entangle, truth battling truth. Sometimes the biggest enemy can be the one right next to you... FACE OF OUR FATHER is too literary to be a thriller, yet too thrilling to put down--a unique blend of action and intimacy--a thriller with a soul. How often does fiction change how we define integrity, prejudice, and evil? To get at all that, a novel needs a rollercoaster of a plot coupled with an acute understanding of identity, love, and where these intersect. Test your beliefs. Read it.

About the Author:

G. Egore Pitir grew up near the shores of Lake Michigan, reading too much, writing too little, and ignoring arithmetic altogether. Naturally, he obtained an engineering degree, flew as a fighter pilot, and then got an airline job. Having successfully faced the math demon in college, he decided to conquer the last item on the list and wrote FACE OF OUR FATHER, a novel exploring how today's clash of cultures permeates every facet of our lives.

Review:

"US involvement in the Middle East is a grey area where you just don't believe one side of the story. Face of Our Father is the one novel that shows both sides...a fast-paced thriller...a mystery so gripping it keeps the reader hooked to the very end.... What makes the character development remarkable is not their perfection, but, rather, their flaws. Highly recommended."-See full review the San Francisco Book Review

"...a great thriller with a soul...in the light of current events, the story could have been pulled off the evening news... While readers of Nelson DeMille and, to some extent, Ken Follett, have been spoiled by characters that are deeper than the thickness of the novel in which they are featured, it is unusual to find a new author daring to reach for such heights (or depths) and doing it successfully." -See full review at The Columbia Review of Books & Film

"Wedding the hard-charging American fatalism of a mid-90s Tom Clancy novel with the introspective emotional observations in the face of infrastructural change of Kazuo Ishiguro, Face Of Our Father is an unusual blend of action-adventure and portrait of domestic intimacy... Pitir's powerful narrative thrust...opens each chapter with a bang and closes it with an anxious rush...maps the craggy terrain of the violent world of power struggles, centuries-old grudges, and the ordinary fight to keep a good marriage going strong."-See full review at IndieReader

"Pitir's greatest strength is making this a nail-biting page turner, while still retaining character depth normally found in character-driven literary fiction. This is most certainly a thriller at its core, and so its a best of both worlds that will appeal to thriller and literary fiction readers alike."-See full review at SPR
