The Paris Diversion Kindle Edition
"I nominate Kate Moore, the protagonist of Chris Pavone's sizzling new thriller The Paris Diversion, for patron saint of working wives and mothers everywhere."--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review "I tore through The Paris Diversion, completely caught up in the thrilling story of one remarkable day in Paris. With its twisting, high-stakes plot, all-too-human characters, and unrelenting tension, I couldn't read it fast enough! I absolutely loved it--highly recommended!"--Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door "A fast-paced and heartfelt thriller set in the world of espionage and terrorism that echoes the best of John le Carré."--Associated Press "Pavone's timely new thriller spins through 12 hours and multiple voices to a startling conclusion."--BBC Culture "Thriller writing at its absolute best. With echoes of Graham Greene and John le Carré, Pavone's novel accomplishes that rare feat of being both a nonstop adventure ride and a smart, stylish and compelling meditation on family, courage, responsibilities, and the relationships we create, for good and bad, throughout our lives. The Paris Diversion does far more than divert; it grips us from the very beginning and doesn't let go."--Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author of The Cutting Edge "[A] fast-paced thriller . . . shelve alongside le Carré, Forsyth, and other masters of foreign intrigue."--Kirkus Reviews "As full of fast-paced twists and turns as a great car chase, you will race through Chris Pavone's new book. This is a thrilling story of international intrigue set in my favorite city in the word--Paris. I loved it!!"--Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa, New York Times bestselling author and TV Host
"Sleek, cunning and breakneck, Chris Pavone's The Paris Diversion sweeps you into its frenetic rhythms from its first pages. With a sprawling cast of characters, with its scissoring plot twists, and especially with Kate--as rich and complicated a hero as you could hope for--it keeps you returning for more and more. A knockout."--Megan Abbott, author of Give Me Your Hand and You Will Know Me "Chris Pavone is a master craftsman. A natural storyteller. Whether we're being driven around Paris in a car trunk or walking through the Luxembourg Gardens, his descriptions leap off the page. The Paris Diversion is a terrific read."--Jason Matthews, New York Times bestselling author of the Red Sparrow trilogy "An ingenious, engrossing sequel to an ingenious, engrossing original. If only all follow-ups were this good."--John Connolly, New York Times bestselling author of the Charlie Parker thriller series --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Not sure what I dislike
He’s cranked out three bestselling thrillers. The first, The Expats (2012), won both the Edgar and Anthony awards, was translated into 20 languages, and is being developed for hew screen.
His fourth and latest effort, The Paris Diversion, shares the same protagonist as The Expats.
Kate Moore is in her late 30s, a CIA agent who specialised in Latin America and killing people. She swapped to a desk job in Washington after marrying IT geek Dexter and starting a family. In a case of art imitating the author’s life, Dexter comes home one day and announces he’s snagged job in Luxembourg.
The shifts back and forth in time in the first half of The Expats had me on the verge of DNF, but the author settles into his work from there and drags everything together satisfactorily.
The Paris Diversion takes place several years later in, you guessed it, the City of Love. Our hero is back in the life as local station chief, where she finds shopping for toys and children clothes breaks the monotony of fighting terrorism. The narrative this time is more polished, and the plot holds together better, although it helps if you’ve read the first book.
