BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE ACCIDENT
Can 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.

Expats was ok but confusing
Expats was a great story, but I was distracted by the way the author jumped around to different times in the story. The writing style was at times awkward and it is surprising that the editor let the many run-on sentences stay in the final manuscript. One sentence an entire page!
Pros: Interesting plot with some good twists. Cons: The time lines got confusing and some of the relationship exposition seemed shallow. Just about every character has a secret past or second life which, while interesting, seems unrealistic. Almost put it down halfway through which is not a good recommendation for a thriller.
Possibly an author with "ADD". I like novels with twists and turns, but this was a confusing read.
Would be considered over priced as a hardback, definitely so as an e-book.
