About the Book

'Smart, sophisticated and suspenseful.' HARLAN COBEN
'Sleek, cunning and breakneck.' MEGAN ABBOTT
'Top-tier.' New York Times

From the top ten bestselling author of The Expats. Kate Moore is back in a pulse-pounding thriller which takes place over the course of one nail-biting day.

Kate Moore – a mother with an interesting past – is living the quiet life in another European city, or trying to. On her way to drop her children off at school in the city centre, the cafes and streets of Paris start to come alive around her. Kate’s husband Dex, meanwhile, charged with finding a particular present for their son’s birthday, is struggling to focus on the job in hand as a financial matter at work seems to be playing on his mind. As worrying reports begin to circulate from key locations around the city, and the sound of wailing sirens becomes increasingly hard to ignore, could their day and, indeed, their lives be about to change forever?

  • Chris Pavone

    Chris Pavone grew up in Brooklyn, graduated from Cornell, and was an editor at book-publishing houses in New York for fifteen years. His 2012 debut, The Expats, described by the Sunday Times as 'a captivating, sophisticated thriller' was an international best seller and won the Edgar Award for best first novel.

“A man with a suicide vest filled with radioactive material stands in front of the Louvre, threatening to detonate it, but this is only the beginning of a complicated plot to steal big money and exact revenge. The story unspools over just a few hours, and you won’t stop reading until the final devastating pages.”
- STEPHEN KING
“Sleek, cunning and breakneck... with as rich and complicated a hero as you could hope for — it keeps you returning for more and more. A knockout.”
- MEGAN ABBOTT
