A pulse-racing international thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Expats and The Accident.
It s 3:00 am. Do you know where your husband is? Meet Will Rhodes: travel writer, recently married, barely solvent, his idealism rapidly giving way to disillusionment and the worry that he’s living the wrong life. Then one night, on assignment for the award-winning Travelers magazine in the wine region of Argentina, a beautiful woman makes him an offer he can’t refuse. Soon Will’s bad choices and dark secrets take him across Europe, from a chateau in Bordeaux to a midnight raid on a Paris mansion, from a dive bar in Dublin to a mega-yacht in the Mediterranean and an isolated cabin perched on the rugged cliffs of Iceland.
As he’s drawn further into a tangled web of international intrigue, it becomes clear that nothing about Will Rhodes was ever ordinary, that the network of deception ensnaring him is part of an immense and deadly conspiracy with terrifying global implications and that the people closest to him may pose the greatest threat of all.
It’s 3:00 am. Your husband has just become a spy.
Have you ever requested a book in the heat of the moment and went back and thought “Crap, why did I do that???? This is not my typical read AT ALL!” I’m ashamed to say that’s what I did with this book, but perhaps the best mistake I have made this year! I don’t typically read a lot of spy thrillers, however, the last few I have read have caused me to rethink that.
Our story starts with Will Rhodes, who is a travel writer, being thrust into a journey with a mysterious woman based on some poor decisions on his part. The less you know about the plot the better, as the allure to this book is in the journey, not particularly the ending. Yes, the ending is a bit predictable but the entire book makes up for that. I felt right next to Will as he traveled from place to place and the descriptions were spot on. This was my firstChris Pavone novel and definitely will not be my last! Highly recommended!
