Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • EDGAR AWARD WINNER • ANTHONY AWARD WINNER

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

Also features Extra Libris material, including a reader’s guide and bonus content

Praise 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)

Reviews

  • Pointless, boring and poorly structured

    1
    By Anton Brecht
    Could have used an editor. I finished it just because I am compulsive but if you are really expecting something on lines of Le Carre you will be disappointed. The closest thing to spy raft here is the protagonist walking on a window ledge. The remaining 9/10th of the book is comprised of an extremely 1 dimensional character struggling to cope with being a housewife.
  • Vastly Overrated

    By CrimsonNcream
    The attempt to create tension and/or suspense by telling the story in a non-linear fashion fell utterly flat. The main character was so inconsistently written, it was impossible to feel any connection to her. The secondary characters were completely two-dimensional- especially the husband, who never felt like part of the story at all. The plot, once it was no longer obscured by the convoluted set-up, is so laughably flimsy that I finally understood why the author was so reluctant to reveal it. Boring, lazy, very self-satisfied writing with an ending that was actually offensive.
  • Hard to put down

    Intricate plot that is almost believable. Most interesting is the writing style of the author. I'm talking about his unique way of describing the thoughts of his main character.
  • Obsessed

    I simply could not put my iPad down when reading this book. Instead of sleeping on a red-eye to Europe I was caught up in Kate and Dexter's adventures abroad. I hope Mr. Pavone has a new adventure for Kate in the works.
  • Boring.....

    By Longhorn5555
    Poorly crafted... Jumps around... Lacks cohesiveness... Uninteresting... Page after page of descriptions of housework... Finally gave up 3/4ths through it, and I rarely put a book down.
  • The worst

    I was compelled to write a review to warn anyone who might purchase this book. If you are expecting a fast paced, spy thriller, that keeps you turning the pages, this is not the book for you!

    I devoured this book in two days. So many clever twists and turns, and so delicately revealed. The best novel of its genre I've read, perhaps ever!

    Fascinating and intriguing. I was addicted from the first page to the last. I wish he had other books out there to read.
  • Grabber!

    More twists and turns that can be counted. What a wonderful story, terrifically written, with great character development. The jaunts throughout Europe were a bonus. Read this book. It is a grabber. Hard to put down.
  • A truly delicious meal for the mind!

    By True Kinsman
    Superb. This book is truly a delicious meal for the mind. The writer was able to jump between past & present in a smooth way without disturbing the flow of events. The set up is in Europe, about an American couple venturing into a new life & a new start. One of them is ex-CIA with dark hidden secrets. Add to that the small little detail of Cyber-theft and you have a winner! Every page you read will leave you hungry for more!
