〉 Pavone’s latest centers around a travel writer caught up in a deadly conspiracy with global implications.
The Expats author Chris Pavone has a new action mystery novel in the works. THE TRAVELERS is turning heads on the TV and film market before it even hits book shelves. Crown has scheduled the book for publication in March of 2016.
The novel centers on Will Rhodes. A travel writer–recently married and barely solvent–Will’s idealism is rapidly giving way to disillusionment and the worry that he’s living the wrong life. Then one night, on assignment for 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 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.
Pavone’s New York Times bestselling novel The Expats, about an American woman living abroad with a dangerous secret, and its sequel The Accident, are both currently under option with CBS Films. The Expats received the 2013 Edgar Award and Anthony Award for Best First Novel. His work has been lauded by the likes of Michael Connelly, John Grisham and Stephen King. With such praise, Pavone is poised to become the next great writer of fiction-turned-big screen adaptations, crafting nail-biting narratives with complex characters in cinematic locales.
