Publisher's Summary

A pulse-racing international thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of The Expats and The Accident

It's 3:00 a.m. Do you know where your husband is?

Meet Will Rhodes: travel writer, recently married, barely solvent, his idealism rapidly giving way to disillusionment and the worry that he's living the wrong life. Then one night, on assignment for the award-winning Travelers magazine in the wine region of Argentina, a beautiful woman makes him an offer he can't refuse. Soon Will's bad choices - and dark secrets - take him across Europe, from a chateau in Bordeaux to a midnight raid on a Paris mansion, from a dive bar in Dublin to a mega-yacht in the Mediterranean and an isolated cabin perched on the rugged cliffs of Iceland. As he's drawn further into a tangled web of international intrigue, it becomes clear that nothing about Will Rhodes was ever ordinary, that the network of deception ensnaring him is part of an immense and deadly conspiracy with terrifying global implications - and that the people closest to him may pose the greatest threat of all.

It's 3:00 a.m. Your husband has just become a spy.

    "Wonderful book"

    I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The story takes place all over the globe but doesn't make you feel like that is being done as window dressing to a sagging story. I found myself alternately hating and liking the characters which pleased me immensely.
    The narration is spot-on.
    Thank you both for a wonderful story. I'm

    "Chris Pavone Does It Again"

    Chris Pavone's writing is awe inspiring. He character development is something you only find among the best writers in any form of writing. To me his books are two in one. One obviously is the thriller which doesn't try to glamorize the ruthless world of spies. The other "book" is his study of people, how we think, what makes us tick, and the questions we ask ourselves about our lives everyday. In other words it is the thinking person's thriller. Great reader.

    Avid reader. Even more avid listener. I enjoy thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, non-fiction .... just about everything.

    Story
    "A fresh new take on the espionage thriller"
    What did you love best about The Travelers?

    It felt a little more realistic than many espionage thrillers. The "reluctant hero" wasn't quite the trope that we're used to and I felt that the situations were realistic and kept my interest.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely. There was just enough back and forth between scenes and characters to keep me listening.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were several good scenes, but the final "showdown" was particularly well done without being over the top.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wouldn't say I was "moved", but I really enjoyed the novel and expect that I'll be reading/listening to more of Mr. Pavone's work.


    Any additional comments?

    Very enjoyable book. Definitely worth the listen or read.

    "As good as it gets"

    What more can I say? A superb story is performed by a storyteller with a magical range of identities. The result is a literary masterpiece.

    "Tedious"

    I don't know which I hated more - the writing or the audio narration. I enjoyed The Expats, but this is just one long, overwrought, extemporaneous series of descriptions that don't add up to much. Something as simple and incidental as a character going to their hotel room may require you to wade through descriptions of the front door, a passing stray dog, the posture of a front desk man, the floor tile, a scent recollection, etc... Was the editor on vacation? And the narrator delivers every line with a one-note wry/ironic tone.

    "Somebody needs an editor"

    A competent writer trying to fake a plot and pretend that asides and observations are enough. But Mr Pavine is no Alan Furst and the lack of a plan shows. This is not a good book.

    Story
    "I loved The Accident, read that instead"

    This was one of the slowest most convoluted stories I have ever read. Practically zero character development, let alone plot twist and excitement. I kept going because I've loved other novels from this writer, but it was untenable. Couldn't do it.

    "A story that never gets to the point"
    What would have made The Travelers better?

    Chapter 25 out of 44 and I have no clue of who is who? or what they do? Who are they working for? FORGET IT WHERE DO I GET MY MONEY BACK???


    Would you ever listen to anything by Chris Pavone again?

    Not unless I see many 5 star reviews.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Michael’s performances?

    Not unless I see many 5 star reviews.

    "A Tedious Listening Experience"

    Five hours into this 17+ hour audiobook, I gave up and quit listening. The story and its details were so drawn out as to be tedious. Five hours in, a plot was only vaguely discernible. I've come to expect much more from a book, print or audio, that is marketed as a mystery/thriller.
