The Best of Times
Front and center with a double-page spread at the front of the Book Review, The Expats by Chris Pavone clearly has the support of his publisher. My mom actually alerted me to this release last week when she heard he went to Cornell (Go Big Red!), so it wasn't a true discovery yesterday morning but I was still excited to see it in such prominent placement. The story revolves around ex-CIA agent Kate Moore who relocates to Luxembourg with her family. Suspicious about another couple, and even her husband's activities, she becomes embroiled in the search to uncover their secrets and all that goes with it. With endorsements from John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell, and Olen Steinhauer, the parallels drawn are clear-- this is hopefully a new powerhouse to add to the rotation of great spy thrillers.
