September 2016 Book of the Month.

When a spoiled travel journalist succumbs to sexual temptation on an assignment on a trip to Argentina, his whole world is about to be pulled apart and not just his shaky marriage. A dazzling conspiracy thriller that spans the globe and introduces a female foe of wonderful seduction and cruelty, this fast-paced read is, like Pavone's two earlier internationally-set thrillers, 'The Expats' and 'The Accident', a complex hall of mirrors wrapping plots within plots, and featuring a surfeit of characters who are not what they seem alongside his signature, hapless male protagonist at its centre. Pavone excels at putting strong women characters at the heart of his plots while never neglecting the action, exotic but realistic travel, deceitful wiles and violence which one would never initially associate with them. Highly satisfying thrills with an innovative background of magazine publishing as a cover for spying and murder. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

"Chris Pavone is one of those writers it's very easy to fall for. When I first read the ms of his debut The Expats, on submission, it didn't take very long at all to know I needed to publish this guy. He writes smart, serious, international thrillers, that have scope and ambition and also manage to be witty and likeable. Over his three books so far, each a standalone, he's artfully maintained this tricky tonal balance. To add to the mix, he always writes great female characters (not something that's true of every male thriller writer!), brilliantly about the internal power struggles of marriage and the work place and, somehow, how these things all relate to the big issues in the world today. As Lee Child has said, 'it's hard to believe he's only on his third novel, he's already an automatic must-read for me’." ~ Angus Cargill, Editorial Director at Faber

Synopsis

The Travelers by Chris Pavone

The pulse-racing international thriller of the year. 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 in 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 Bordeaux chateau to a midnight raid in Paris, from a Dublin dive-bar to a mega-yacht in the Mediterranean and an isolated cabin perched on the cliffs of Iceland. As Will is drawn further into a tangled web of international intrigue, it becomes clear 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.
