Free sampler containing the first 5 chapters of the new novel from the author of The Sunday Times and The New York Times bestseller, The Expats.

In New York, Isabel Reed, the most powerful literary agent 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, things which could compromise national security and change the world.

In Copenhagen, Hayden Gray, a veteran station chief, is also on the trail of this manuscript – and the secrets that lie at its heart.

And as they try to outwit each other, the nameless author watches on from afar. With no-one sure who holds all the cards, the stakes couldn’t be higher: in twenty-four hours careers could be ruined, devastating secrets could be unearthed, and innocent people could die . . .

Critic Reviews

Chris Pavone is the new best thing. The Accident proves the promise of The Expats. It is as intelligent and timely as it is relentless and gripping. Pavone is going to be around for a long time and now is the time to jump on the train.

Unputdownable ... Pavone [is] a reliable new must-read in the world of thrillers.
