THE TRAVELERS by Chris Pavone

A travel writer, a rogue agent, a marriage on the rocks, a whole world of secrets...

Will Rhodes is an award-winning correspondent for Travelers magazine, on assignment at a luxury Argentinian resort - fine wines and gourmet food, polo fields and the looming Andes. But Will's life is about to be turned upside down when a new flirtation turns into something far more dangerous, and he only realises too late. Turns out he's been targeted, he just doesn't know why. He doesn't know what these people truly want and how far into his life they will reach, to his friends and his colleagues, to his boss and his wife. He doesn't know that they will stop at nothing in their pursuit, and he doesn't know about the secrets he has already been keeping...

From the Edgar Award winning, internationally bestselling, author of The Expats and The Accident, The Travelers is an ingenious, compulsive thriller - taking us from New York to Washington, Mendoza to Capri, London to Paris, Edinburgh to Dublin, Stockholm to the wilds of Iceland - about marriage, deceit, betrayal, and the secrets we should watch out for. 

'The Travelers combines Pavone’s trademark Swiss-watch plotting with warm and human characters caught up in a deadly scenario that gets plausibly and inevitably more dangerous as each page turns.  It’s hard to believe this is only Pavone’s third book - he’s already an automatic must-read for me.' – Lee Child

Chris Pavone grew up in Brooklyn, graduated from Cornell, and was an editor at book-publishing houses in New York for fifteen years. His 2012 debut, The Expats, described by the Sunday Times as 'a captivating, sophisticated thriller' won both the Edgar and Anthony Awards for best first  novel. It was followed in 2014 by the New York Times bestseller, The Accident.
