Publisher's Summary

A tense and timely debut novel set amid the terrorist attacks on Paris.

Paris Metro is the gripping story of an American journalist compelled to reexamine her convictions as terrorism threatens to engulf her family. It's 2015, and Kit is living in Paris, estranged from her Iraqi diplomat husband and raising their teenage son, Ahmed. Having spent the years since 9/11 covering the Middle East - from Baghdad after the US invasion to Syria during the refugee crisis - Kit is enjoying a quieter life. But when Charlie Hebdo is attacked and a cartoonist friend of hers is killed, and then terrorists storm the Bataclan, Kit's Parisian world is shattered. As she is drawn back into reporting, she begins to suspect that Ahmed may be running with the terrorists.

Paris Metro is a deeply moving story about the psychic effects of the Age of Terror.

Best listen of 2018

Intelligent, almost poetic without being opaque, intriguing and very realistic characters and settings. The kind of work that stays with me after the listening is completed. Ms. Steavenson's treatment of the realities of the Middle East rings with an authenticity that is rarely encountered. I hope she continues to write other novels. Elisabeth Rodgers' narration is superb and is perfect for this book.
