NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

  • EDGAR AWARD WINNER
  • ANTHONY AWARD WINNERCan we ever escape our secrets?In the cobblestoned streets of Luxembourg, Kate Moore's days are filled with playdates and coffee mornings, her weekends spent in Paris and skiing in the Alps. But Kate is also guarding a tremendous, life-defining secret—one that's become so unbearable that it begins to unravel her newly established expat life. She suspects that another American couple are not who they claim to be; her husband is acting suspiciously; and as she travels around Europe, she finds herself looking over her shoulder, increasingly terrified that her own past is catching up with her. As Kate begins to dig, to uncover the secrets of the people around her, she finds herself buried in layers of deceit so thick they threaten her family, her marriage, and her life. Stylish and sophisticated, fiercely intelligent, and expertly crafted, The Expats proves Chris Pavone to be a writer of tremendous talent.Now with an except from Chris Pavone's latest novel, The Accident Also features Extra Libris material, including a reader's guide and bonus contentPraise for The Expats"Sly . . . Pavone strengthens this book with a string of head-spinning revelations in its last pages. . . . The tireless scheming of all four principals truly exceeds all sane expectations."The New York Times"Bombshell-a-minute . . . Pavone creates a fascinating, complicated hero." Entertainment Weekly "A gripping spy drama and an artful study of the sometimes cat-and-mouse game of marriage."Family Circle"Smartly executed . . . Pavone is full of sharp insights into the parallels between political espionage and marital duplicity. . . . Thoroughly captivating."The New York Times Book Review "Superb . . . [Pavone] expertly draws readers along with well-timed clues and surprises. . . . An engineering marvel."Richmond Times-Dispatch "Expertly and intricately plotted, with a story spiraling into disaster and a satisfyingly huge amount of double-crossing, The Expats certainly doesn't feel like a first novel. This is an impressively assured entry to the thriller scene."The Guardian (UK)
