But the greatest threat will come from a shadowy figure out of his past: the man known only as Faust.

What the Critics Say

  • 2008 Audie Award Winner
    Audiobook of the Year

"Innovative and unique, The Chopin Manuscript, written by masters in the field of thrillers, is far more than the sum of its parts. Here each author shines, blending individual skill and energy, into a riveting, crackling-paced tapestry of murder, mystery, and mayhem. Not to be missed!" (James Rollins, author of The Judas Strain)

"A GREAT story, written by one GREAT author after another, in one GREAT chapter after another. A stellar achievement of collectivity that blows from the starting gate at 100 mph and never slows down. A thrill-a-page from 15 GREAT thriller masters. Don't miss this one." (Steve Berry, author of The Venetian Betrayal)

    "It Was Okay. . ."

    I'm not sure why, but something about this title and synopsis intrigued me. Once I was into chapter 3, however, I suddenly remembered that I don't even LIKE thrillers! This one did little to convince me otherwise . . . the various authors reminded me of an 8th grade writing activity I might have assignmed my students a few years ago: unfortunately, the results were quite similar in style and quality.
