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)

    "what am I istening to?"

    After three chapters I actually forgot what I was listening to. Usually, I do my workouts while listening to books and today I got half-way through the run while listening to this book and realized I wasn't listening. Pacing is poor and I think the different authors are trying to be too clever or at least confusing it with being complex. Go back and pick a classic like Buchan's "39 Steps" and skip this silliness.

    "Just plain silliness"

    Thriller novels ask the reader to suspend logic several times a book. In return the authors gives the reader several plot twists and turns that keep the story exciting. The problem with The Copper Bracelet is that 16 different authors each asked the reader to suspend logic serveral times a chapter and provided several plot twists. Too much of a good thing is not great. It becomes a little tedious and a lot silly. Exposure to 16 top thriller writers is a good idea. The way it was done in The Copper Bracelet just didn't work.

    "don't waste your time or money"

    The most unabashed piece of garbage I have ever tried to listen to. After six hours, I could still not have cared less about any of the characters or the outcome of the supposed plot. If I could give it a zero star, I would.

    "a bit dissapointed..."

    i was dissapointed as this one just didn't grab me like the last one. there is a brilliant chapter or two (the 'twins race' as the best.) molina is still superb as the narrator.

    "Great Listen!!"

    Once you start, you won't want to stop. The pace is great. I only listen in time limited increments. I couldn't wait to get back to the book. Highly recommended.

    "Could not suspend disbelief enough..."

    The story began well enough, then got more and more twisted. This can be good in some stories but in this one it was irritating. When an author finished their chapter they frequently ended it with something ridiculous for the next one to try to pick up and make something of. Characters when killed came back from the dead; impossible situations were evaded with ease. The end with its many "thank goodness the book is over" events, dragged. I was happy to finish it.

    "Too many authors"

    Too many changes, too many authors, that's almost impossible to follow the track.

    "Not worth it..."

    Having recently listened to Steig Larsen's books, i can simply say that this is not in the same league.

    I know its quite challenging for multiple authors to write a single novel. I think this is probably the root cause of the issue - The focus of the story keeps changing, and is like watching a bad bollywood movie.

    If you are like me and got the book after the first chapter (which is the only chapter that's good) - you will surely be disappointed.

    The narration is not all that great - and even I found an error in narration (He mentions heavy metal, instead of heavy water) - I think he was into headbanging possibly.
