Publisher's Summary

A peaceful picnic in the French countryside explodes in violence. A mysterious assassin hisses a deadly threat. And events are set in motion that could propel India and Pakistan down the road to nuclear confrontation.

Two years after the events of the Audiobook of the Year - The Chopin Manuscript - former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton and his Volunteers once again must crack a secretive conspiracy that not only threatens their lives, but the stability of the world. Their race against time will take them from London to the U.S. to Russia and beyond. And at the heart of it all is one question: What is the secret of the Copper Bracelet?

Sixteen of the world's greatest thriller writers collaborated on The Copper Bracelet. Once again, as he did with The Chopin Manuscript, Jeffery Deaver wrote the first chapter. Then, each successive author wrote a chapter in turn, finally returning it to Deaver to complete this thrilling sequel.

What the Critics Say

"This was like playing on an all-star team, and all the hits were home runs." (Lee Child)

"A feast for the senses, The Copper Bracelet continues the standard of excellence established by The Chopin Manuscript. Action, intrigue, suspense, they are all there. Another certified no-question-about-it-winner from a remarkable collection of talent. Bravo." (Steve Berry)

"What a blast to collaborate with some of the greatest suspense writers around on the thriller event of the year." (Joseph Finder)

"I can't think of a more enjoyable writing experience in my twenty-five years of being a fiction author than writing The Copper Bracelet and its predecessor, The Chopin Manuscript. We writers spend way too much time by ourselves in dark rooms, and it was a delight to emerge from the cave and hang out, so to speak, with my peers. I have to say that I sat down to read the manuscript with more than little trepidation. I needn't have worried. I was blown away...[and was] fascinated to see how a group of authors with vastly varied writing styles and approaches to creativity produced such a cohesive thriller with a relentlessly fast-paced narrative. (And, okay, I'll admit, I got a voyeur's kick in seeing how my talented co-authors ply their craft.)" (Jeffery Deaver)

    "Fantastic"

    This book was great. Loved the fact that all the authors wrote a chapter for it. Was great to see all the styles that contributed to make this book really enjoyable.
    Listen to the Chopin Manucript first though.

    "Great Story"
    Where does The Copper Bracelet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed this - listened to the Chopin Manuscript first with the same cast of characters. With each chapter written by a different author, one did not know where it was going and there were some different twists and turns. Jeffrey Deaver did a great job of beginning it and pulling it all together at the end.

    "What a concept and a wonderful job."

    This reader/listener always had to remind himself that someone new was telling the story. Then the shift in focus from author to author was a bit clearer. What a job well done. I have to listen to it again.

    "A Roller Coaster of a Book"

    This book is as enjoyable as The Chopin Manuscript. Each author takes the story in unexpected directions, providing most satisfying twists and turns. Characters drop like flies, and the plot charges forward like a bullet train. Although each author has their own style, they manage to weave a seamless whole.

    Alfred Molina is perhaps one of, if not the, best narrator of audiobooks I've heard and I've been listening to audiobooks since they were only on cassette. Tone, pacing, pitch and interpretation of the material are flawless. His voicing of characters gives each an identity without being overbearing or overdone. He can do accents extremely well. He's a joy to the ears.

    Having come fresh off a Scott Brick narrated book (The Paris Vendetta) I was refreshed, and my faith in audiobooks restored by Mr. Molina's superb talent. Scott Brick should give Mr. Molina's books a listen, he could learn a lot.

    "Twists and Turns"

    The Copper Bracelet had more twists and turns in it than a bag of pretzels. I would have liked to have seen more character development from each author or have each author develop a character as well as the plot. A great read, I look forward to more of these collaborations in the future.

    "Brilliant idea"

    I just had to listen to this book to see how each author would put his mark on it - and wow! wonderful - it's also great to know who wrote which chapter and even better to see how they would flow into each other.

    It was really great!

    "A great sequel"

    The Copper Bracelet, each chapter written by a different author, is a great sequel to "The Chopin Manuscript" and we look forward to more "serial thrillers". What a brilliant concept.

    "Worth the listen...."

    I thought the book was worth the listen. The book seemed to flow seamlessly, even with all the writer's differing styles. The plot and story line was silly, but entertaining if you like secret plots and teams of experts trying to prevent world domination by the bad guys. Kinda like a Pinky and the Brain cartoon; well, maybe not that bad. If you don't expect much more than that then go for it

    "This All-Star game should become a tradition!"

    What an absolute treat! These books are sort of the literary equivalent of the NFL Pro Bowl, MLB and NBA All Star Games all rolled into one. For those who commented that the pacing was a bit uneven, I did not find that so...and who cares, anyway?! When those special all-star days roll around every year they may not yield the year's greatest game, but given the thrill of watching your future Hall Of Fame players on the big stage in their prime...who cares?! We might not get absolute perfection with these books, but they're still fantastic listens and so unique that it's easy to overlook minor imperfections. Having loved "Chopin", I was so excited to get my ears around a sequel that I sort of "sped-listened"; the first time through. I'm going to go right back and savor a second go. Molina is spot-on again. He's just a wonderful reader and the perfect choice for this project. With an all-star game, though it's only an exhibition, one gets a sense that the players really relish getting to team up with the very best at what they do. Here's hoping that these great authors are having as much fun doing these very unique projects as it appears, and that they'll keep these wonderful books coming!
