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)

    "Wonderful Collaberation!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Indeed there are a lot of twists and turns. I went back a few times to make sure I did'nt miss anything. Duh, this is an audiobook, pretty easy to go back and catch it again. And with the Narrator being so easy to listen to, why not?!


    Have you listened to any of Alfred Molina’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. He is always what draws me to decide to buy the book. I think I could listen to anything Alfred Molina narrates!


    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised at the really negative reviews. Everyone's different, but this is quite interesting to get so many writers building on previous chapters. Definitely worth it. Money well spent!

    "Could have done without the music between chapters"

    Thought it may be disjointed due to the number of authors but it wasn't. The music between the chapters was annoying.

    Any additional comments?

    And so are all the authors. The transition from one chapter/writer to the next is flawless. I enjoyed The Chopin Manuscript enormously and now this mystery. Albert Molina narrated with all the talent and skill I've come to appreciate in him. I love his distinctive voice. All in all, this book and the technique are innovative and just plain fun. Let's do it again! Next one, please?

    "Ugh! What happened?"

    The Chopin Manuscript was so good. I was thrilled to find a sequel. This book was such a disappointment. It was a bloodbath, with characters who did not advance the plot, only existing in one chapter to be killed in the next. This collaboration of authors didn't work, I listened to the whole thing hoping that the story would eventually wrap up neatly, but it ended up as a convoluted mess of a plot that was not worth trying to figure out. In the end, I returned this title. Not worth the time it took to listen to.

    A great book, fantastic twists and a compliment to the first. A series worth waiting for, but please hurry! Perfect reading voice.

    "Great reader"

    Wonderful narration! Nonstop action and fun plot. But, I gave it a four star rating instead of five for the slightly choppy feeling. I'm sure this was due to the many readers, but it took just a little away for me.

    "Sounded like what it was"

    A bunch of good authors (among them a few of my favorites) having fun and entertaining themselves. Alfred Molina did a great job with it. It was not more than "ok" though because it was just too obvious what was going on.

    "Wilted"

    I have to wonder how this book would have been written by a single author. The disparate styles did not work for me. Some authors failed to keep up the tempo and excitement of the story, which killed the momentum. The Copper Bracelet feels like a collaborative movie script that was never polished into a cohesive novel. This is definitely "made for the silver screen".
