Boy was I excited to get this book. I read Chris Pavone’s first two books, The Expats and The Accident and really liked them. Then I read in GQ that his new one, The Travelers, is like binge watching Alias – one of my all-time favorite shows.
The Travelers follows Will Rhodes, travel writer for the magazine, The Travelers. His wife, Chloe, used to work there but left because they decided to try to have kids. The editor at the magazine, Malcolm Summers, is the leader. While constantly broke and living in a run-down, inherited house in Brooklyn, Will and Chloe seem to be your typical young to middle-aged couple. They have busy, cosmopolitan lives. Maybe they feel a little disconnected from each other. They feel emotionally distant when Will leaves for France.
In France, Will meets and is enchanted with, Elle, a fledgling travel writer from Australia. While he manages to avoid a romantic entanglement, the plot begins to thicken. And it doesn’t stop until the end. I do not want to say much more about the plot because I definitely do not want to spoil anything for those who will read this book.
It’s a roller coaster ride of an action thriller that is well-written and well-plotted. If you like thrillers and you like like plot twists and action, you will love this book.
