“Brilliant, insanely clever, and delectably readable.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“Meticulously plotted, psychologically complex. . . . The sheer amount of bombshell plot twists are nothing short of extraordinary, but it’s Pavone’s portrayal of Kate and her quest to find meaning in her charade of an existence that makes this book such a powerful read.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Impressive. . . . With almost more double-crosses than a body can stand.” —Kirkus (starred review)

“Bristling with suspense and elegantly crafted, The Expats introduces a compelling and powerful female protagonist you won't soon forget. Well done!” —Patricia Cornwell

“One of the best-written spy thrillers I've ever read. . . . A riveting story of great-game deceptions wrapped inside the smaller deceptions of marriage. At moments horrifying, hilarious, and very wise, The Expats has given Chris Pavone a permanent place on my short list of must-read authors.” —Olen Steinhauer

“A gem. Clever, suspenseful with a jet fueled story that rockets from one corner of the globe to another, it is never less than a thrill a minute. . . . An absolute winner!” —Christopher Reich

“Spy stories need to budge over to make space for Kate Moore—mother, wife, expat and far more than she appears. I loved her.” —Rosamund Lupton

“Riveting. One of the most accomplished debuts of recent years: not just a worthy addition to the literature of espionage and betrayal, but a fine portrait of a marriage disintegrating under the pressure of secrets and lies.” —John Connolly


From the Hardcover edition.

Présentation de l'éditeur

From Edgar Award-winning Chris Pavone, author of the Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller The Expats, comes a riveting time-bomb of a thriller (fans of The Expats will be excited to see a few characters from Pavone's first book pop up here as well). Taking place over the course of twenty-four hours, The Accident draws on the rich worlds of publishing, politics and international spies to tell a suspenseful tale of intrigue in the vein of John Grisham and Laura Lippman.

In New York City, Isabel Reed, one of the most respected and powerful literary agents in the city, frantically turns the pages of a manuscript into the early dawn hours. This manuscript - printed out, hand-delivered, totally anonymous - is full of shocking revelations and disturbing truths linked to a car accident that occurred years ago, things which could compromise national security. Is this what she's been waiting for her entire career: a book that will help her move on from a painful past, a book that could save her beloved industry... a book that will change the world?

In Copenhagen, Hayden Gray, a veteran station chief, wary of the CIA's obsession with the Middle East, has been steadfastly monitoring the dangers that abound in Europe. Even if his bosses aren't paying attention, he's determined to stay vigilant. And he's also on the trail of this manuscript - and the secrets that lie at its heart. For him, quite simply, it must never see the light of day.

As Isabel and Hayden try to outwit each other, the nameless author watches on from afar. With no-one quite sure who holds all the cards, the stakes couldn't be higher: in just one day careers could be ruined, devastating secrets could be unearthed, and innocent people could die. As the manuscript moves from person to person, it leaves a trail of bodies in its wake.

Gripping, sophisticated, and impossible to put down, The Accident is a masterful follow-up to one of the most acclaimed and striking debut thrillers of recent years.

Passionnant de bout en bout. Un suspens qui se dévoile au fil des pages et qui est l'occasion de découvrir la férocité des milieux d'affaires des médias et de l'édition aux états-unis.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 UNAUTHORIZED BIOS CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH 12 février 2014
Par Red Rock Bookworm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
What author Chris Pavone gives us in his new novel "The Accident" is a series of "ones". One day in the lives of a group of inter-related characters , one explosive non-fiction manuscript that threatens the very lives of many of these individuals, and one ruthless media mogul and his assorted cronies bent on keeping the manuscript from ever being published. Unlike Pavone's first novel "The Expats" which dealt primarily with spies, this story is set in the world of publishing with side trips into political maneuvering and dirty dealing performed under the guise of national security.

It appears that the world of publishing is filled with individuals who will do whatever it takes to survive in a cut-throat business. (Ditto for CIA and FBI operatives.) From New York literary agent Isabel Reed and her assistant Alexis to owner/publisher Brad McNally and his editor Jeffrey to subsidiary rights director Camilla Glyndon-Browning, each sees the anonymous submission as a ticket to success, while CIA Copenhagen station chief Hayden Gray is trying desperately to hold on to his own "golden ticket."

Although all the action takes place in one day it does initially take a bit of concentration to keep the cast straight since the author moves back and forth in time via the various characters recollections of old secrets and lies and more recent revelations. No spoilers here but I will say that the end of this book contains an extra layer of complexity that elevates the story from average to remarkably satisfying. 31/2 stars

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Illusion? Reality? It's All The Same. 28 janvier 2014
Par Bonnie Cehovet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Chris Pavone has a winner here! It took me a couple of chapters to get the rhythm of the book, but I ended up loving it. A well written story-line that keeps the reader turning the pages, with just enough reality to make it believable. The story revolves around literary agent Isabel Reed, and a mysterious, anonymous manuscript that she receives. She is both drawn to it, and terrified by it. The revelations in this book form a web that encompasses secrets involving a powerful media media empire, its owner, government agencies and officials, and a secret from Isabel's own past.

The manuscript could be a career maker for many people .. including Isabel's young assistant,Alexis; Camilla, an ambitious rights director searching for a golden parachute; Stan, a larger than life producer in LA, by Brad, a struggling publisher in New York, and by Isabel's friend Jeff, a veteran editor. It could also get them killed.

Each character is well scripted, and the movement between them flows seamlessly. They each have their strengths, and their flaws. In the background we have the anonymous author, who is supposed to have committed suicide, and a CIA type operative that ... isn't.

This is all about betrayal at the highest levels, and how one incident can form a shadow over so many lives, for their entire life. All of this action takes place within the space of one day ... 24 hours. Well worth a read!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pavone's The Accident Is Destined For Bestseller Lists And Its Getting There Will Be No Accident! 11 mars 2014
Par Bobbewig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Pavone's The Accident, the follow-up to his very good first novel, The Expats, has all the makings of a bestseller. Its plot is fast-paced and exciting, its characters are credible and its narrative makes the reader feel that he/she is "right there" in the middle of the excitement.

So, here's a bit of what The Accident is about to whet your appetite.

A female, NYC literary agent has just finished reading a manuscript by an anonymous author that provides mysterious revelations about some very powerful people -- one of whom is a billionaire media mogul, as well as long-hidden secrets about her own past. It is a manuscript that she feels will explode its way onto bestseller lists, and help rejuvenate her career as well as that of the editor she's chosen to help get this book published. A very experienced CIA operative is determined that this story stay buried, and is willing to "remove" anyone exposed to the manuscript. And, The Accident is about the anonymous author himself who is "living in shadows" in Copenhagen, trying to atone for a lifetime's worth of lies and betrayals by wanting to get his book published.

Needless to say, these lives collide as the book begins on the path towards publication and towards saving or ruining careers and companies...a path that places everything at risk and everyone in danger of their lives.

Is The Accident great literature? Definitely not. What it is, however, is an exciting, entertaining and suspenseful thriller that demonstrates that Pavone's successful debut with The Expats was no accident. The one minor criticism I have is that the book tends to jump too much back and forth between time periods, characters and geographic locations; which, at times, made me feel I needed a scorecard to keep track of things. Despite this perceived flaw, The Accident is a book I think most thriller lovers will enjoy.

I received an eBook of The Accident from the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest, objective review; which is what I've provided. I hope you find my review helpful in helping to decide if The Accident is a book for you.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 "The Accident": Move Along, Nothing to See Here 11 juillet 2014
Par Sherry Christie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
You may want to read THE ACCIDENT if you're part of the New York literary crowd, but if you're just looking for a suspenseful read, move on. This "suspense" novel is very slow to develop a plot, and we never stay in any character's head long enough to have a chance of developing empathy. The author attempts to build tension by repeatedly cross-cutting between different points of view, verb tenses, and present/past activity (the latter also hopscotching around out of sequence), but as a reader I found this technique more annoying than engaging. Scene-setting is established with a laundry list of observations -- e.g., "Then he too starts walking through Union Square's riot of exuberant youth," followed by descriptions of 20 different kinds of people encountered in the square, none of whom have anything to do with the story. Alas, the big end-of-book reveal of a key character's real identity is obvious halfway through the novel. In the Acknowledgments Mr. Pavone thanks everyone he has apparently ever shaken hands with, but I wish he had had more to thank his editor for.

Someone once told me that I needed to be able to sit down with a new book and read the first 100 pages. I have never had that time so never thought this was particularly true.....until this book. I started this book, restarted, and re started again. I thought about doing a flow chart of characters so when I could read a few chapters I wouldn't be so lost. I loved the plot and my only real complaint, and this is probably the fault of the e-reader, is when switching back and forth between present day and 25 years ago, those paragraphs need to be in italic so it is readily recognized. Drives me crazy when I am reading along and the very next paragraph is something from the past. No page break, no indentation - something so I don't need to go back to see what I might have missed! Would I recommend, yes, but don't think it is as good as his first book.
