The Travellers - Chris Pavone
Meet Will Rhodes: globe-trotting journalist, barely solvent, living in a crumbling house and a crumbling marriage, his idealism giving way to disillusionment, to the increasing worry that he’s living the wrong life, with the wrong person. One night in Argentina, an irresistible woman makes Will an offer that he can’t resist, then a very different sort of offer that he can’t refuse.
A big (436 pages) entertaining read.
