Will Rhodes has made a terrible mistake. Harmless flirtations are part of his job. But these flirtations have never showed up at his hotel room with a gun, threatening his life. Will is a travel writer, a wine aficionado and international food expert for Travelers magazine. Though he's wondered why he sometimes has to deliver bulky sealed packages to consulates all over the world, or why he occasionally has to use a fake name. Now those shadowy errands and white lies have come back to haunt him. Clearly Will's job is not everything he thought it was. But once the truth is revealed to him, he needs to act fast, and act right. His life depends on it.

I read all Pavone's stuff in reverse chronological order.

The good news is that the new stuff is best! (Paris Diversion is great)

The bad news is the Travellers is a bit convoluted.

But I love the ex-pat and publishing biz themes.

1st time reading this author. 433 pages and on about page 350 I was still asking myself who were the good guys and who were the bad ones.. Too many characters, too many locales. I'll try Expats and give him another chance. Hope this was just a one-off for Pavone

Spies in the publishing world, who knew!! I was confused to the very end and am still pondering who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. Does the CIA do stuff like this?

Almost done reading this exciting spy thriller. I like the way this story kept me guessing what next?

O.K. book. A bit confusing as author jumps from character to character. Hard to follow.

Chris Pavone just keeps getting better with each novel. The Travelers kept me guessing almost until the end. Loved the plot twists, the different locales, the intriguing yet believable characters. The ending was satisfying too. Well constructed, well paced, well written. Keep 'em coming, Mr. Pavone.

The Travelers is a fast-paced, globe-trotting novel filled with CIA intrigue. What better cover for a spy than to be a travel writer? Pavone creates edge-of-your-seat thrills that leave you guessing until the end.

See my staff pick blog post for the full review and other novels I'm reading.

I agree with the commenter, bluehydrangea, and they may be right with the comparison with North By Northwest, but I found myself being reminded of Hitchcock's movie, Charade - - the original one with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn (not the horrible remake with Marky Mark Wahlberg!).

Much better than THE ACCIDENT, not quite as good as THE EXPATS, but nevertheless an enjoyable light spy thriller that moves at a great pace.
