A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
With his first novel The Expats, Pavone introduced himself as a clever spinner of tales of treachery and intrigue, alongside a forensic dissection of the dark side of married life, which made for a unique combination. In his new novel, he confirms his talent for suspense in the tale of a manuscript coveted by agents, publishers, industrialists, spies and shadowy government agencies, many of whom would kill or worse to avoid it being published. A multilayered structure keeps the reader in the dark all along, with clues scattered aphazardly and twists buried at every turn. The book reads like a runaway train and offers suspense of the highest order. Most satisfying.
