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.

Now with an except from Chris Pavone's latest novel, The Accident

Publishers Weekly Review

Jan 02, 2012 – Fans of John le Carré and Robert Ludlum will welcome former book editor Pavone’s first novel, a meticulously plotted, psychologically complex spy thriller. When Dexter Moore, a financial systems security expert in Washington, D.C., receives a lucrative offer to work for a bank in Luxembourg, his wife, Kate, resigns her position as a CIA operative—a job her husband knows nothing about—and vows to recreate herself as a devoted wife and mother to their two boys. But Kate soon discovers that computer geek Dexter has been living a secret life as well, and that he may be a thief being investigated by the FBI and Interpol who’s stolen millions of euros in online banking transactions. 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.

Customer Reviews

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!

The Expats

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.

Expats

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.
