Library Journal Review

Will Rhodes is a young, broke travel writer who works for an organization called Travelers. After Will is forcibly recruited as an asset by a group that claims to be the CIA, his job and his marriage are irrevocably changed. Travelers, which produces a glossy magazine and runs a series of overseas offices, may also serve as cover for illicit espionage. Pavone alternates among Will; his wife, Chloe; his boss Malcolm; his coworker Gabriela; and a variety of shadowy operatives as he explores the complexity of being an international spy while trying to maintain a "normal" life and relationships. He also adeptly illustrates the changing nature of both espionage and the publishing industry; readers familiar with Pavone's work may recognize characters that were featured heavily in The Accident. Narrator Paul Michael channels Cary Grant and other golden age film stars as he guides the action through a variety of exotic destinations to a gripping conclusion. VERDICT An international thrill ride that will leave fans eager for the next installment, suitable for both espionage fans and literary fiction readers edging into genre reads. ["The best-selling author of The Expats and The Accident excels at suspense and action, penning the perfect balance of tautness and complexity to keep the story moving forward at a breakneck pace": LJ 2/1/16 starred review of the Crown hc.]-Anna Mickelsen, Springfield City Lib., MA © Copyright 2016.
