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.
