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?
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.
A 100 mph thriller that all takes place within twelve hours.
Thriller writing at its absolute best. With echoes of Graham Greene and John le Carré, Pavone’s novel accomplishes that rare feat of being both a nonstop adventure ride and a smart, stylish and compelling meditation on family, courage, responsibilities, and the relationships we create, for good and bad, throughout our lives. The Paris Diversion does far more than divert; it grips us from the very beginning and doesn’t let go.
My head is still swimming after reading The Paris Diversion. Chris Pavone has constructed the perfect page-turner for our fraught times, a white-knuckle ride of international proportions where nothing is ever what it seems.
Since he exploded onto the scene with The Expats, Chris Pavone has quickly become one of the elite must-read can’t-miss thriller writers working today. Grab The Paris Diversion and hold on for the ride.
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.
