Kurzbeschreibung

11. März 2014

From the author of the New York Times-bestselling and Edgar Award-winning The Expats
 
As dawn approaches in New York, literary agent Isabel Reed is turning the final pages of a mysterious, anonymous manuscript, racing through the explosive revelations about powerful people, as well as long-hidden secrets about her own past. In Copenhagen, veteran CIA operative Hayden Gray, determined that this sweeping story be buried, is suddenly staring down the barrel of an unexpected gun. And in Zurich, the author himself is hiding in a shadowy expat life, trying to atone for a lifetime’s worth of lies and betrayals with publication of The Accident, while always looking over his shoulder.

Over the course of one long, desperate, increasingly perilous day, these lives collide as the book begins its dangerous march toward publication, toward saving or ruining careers and companies, placing everything at risk—and everyone in mortal peril.  The rich cast of characters—in publishing and film, politics and espionage—are all forced to confront the consequences of their ambitions, the schisms between their ideal selves and the people they actually became.

The action rockets around Europe and across America, with an intricate web of duplicities stretching back a quarter-century to a dark winding road in upstate New York, where the shocking truth about the accident itself is buried.

Gripping, sophisticated, layered, and impossible to put down, The Accident proves once again that Chris Pavone is a true master of suspense.

“Riveting. One of the most accomplished debuts of recent years: not just a worthy addition to the literature of espionage and betrayal, but a fine portrait of a marriage disintegrating under the pressure of secrets and lies.” —John Connolly

3.0 von 5 Sternen UNAUTHORIZED BIOS CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH 12. Februar 2014
Von Red Rock Bookworm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
What author Chris Pavone gives us in his new novel "The Accident" is a series of "ones". One day in the lives of a group of inter-related characters , one explosive non-fiction manuscript that threatens the very lives of many of these individuals, and one ruthless media mogul and his assorted cronies bent on keeping the manuscript from ever being published. Unlike Pavone's first novel "The Expats" which dealt primarily with spies, this story is set in the world of publishing with side trips into political maneuvering and dirty dealing performed under the guise of national security.

It appears that the world of publishing is filled with individuals who will do whatever it takes to survive in a cut-throat business. (Ditto for CIA and FBI operatives.) From New York literary agent Isabel Reed and her assistant Alexis to owner/publisher Brad McNally and his editor Jeffrey to subsidiary rights director Camilla Glyndon-Browning, each sees the anonymous submission as a ticket to success, while CIA Copenhagen station chief Hayden Gray is trying desperately to hold on to his own "golden ticket."

Although all the action takes place in one day it does initially take a bit of concentration to keep the cast straight since the author moves back and forth in time via the various characters recollections of old secrets and lies and more recent revelations. No spoilers here but I will say that the end of this book contains an extra layer of complexity that elevates the story from average to remarkably satisfying. 31/2 stars

5.0 von 5 Sternen Illusion? Reality? It's All The Same. 28. Januar 2014
Von Bonnie Cehovet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Chris Pavone has a winner here! It took me a couple of chapters to get the rhythm of the book, but I ended up loving it. A well written story-line that keeps the reader turning the pages, with just enough reality to make it believable. The story revolves around literary agent Isabel Reed, and a mysterious, anonymous manuscript that she receives. She is both drawn to it, and terrified by it. The revelations in this book form a web that encompasses secrets involving a powerful media media empire, its owner, government agencies and officials, and a secret from Isabel's own past.

The manuscript could be a career maker for many people .. including Isabel's young assistant,Alexis; Camilla, an ambitious rights director searching for a golden parachute; Stan, a larger than life producer in LA, by Brad, a struggling publisher in New York, and by Isabel's friend Jeff, a veteran editor. It could also get them killed.

Each character is well scripted, and the movement between them flows seamlessly. They each have their strengths, and their flaws. In the background we have the anonymous author, who is supposed to have committed suicide, and a CIA type operative that ... isn't.

This is all about betrayal at the highest levels, and how one incident can form a shadow over so many lives, for their entire life. All of this action takes place within the space of one day ... 24 hours. Well worth a read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Pavone's The Accident Is Destined For Bestseller Lists And Its Getting There Will Be No Accident! 11. März 2014
Von Bobbewig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Pavone's The Accident, the follow-up to his very good first novel, The Expats, has all the makings of a bestseller. Its plot is fast-paced and exciting, its characters are credible and its narrative makes the reader feel that he/she is "right there" in the middle of the excitement.

So, here's a bit of what The Accident is about to whet your appetite.

A female, NYC literary agent has just finished reading a manuscript by an anonymous author that provides mysterious revelations about some very powerful people -- one of whom is a billionaire media mogul, as well as long-hidden secrets about her own past. It is a manuscript that she feels will explode its way onto bestseller lists, and help rejuvenate her career as well as that of the editor she's chosen to help get this book published. A very experienced CIA operative is determined that this story stay buried, and is willing to "remove" anyone exposed to the manuscript. And, The Accident is about the anonymous author himself who is "living in shadows" in Copenhagen, trying to atone for a lifetime's worth of lies and betrayals by wanting to get his book published.

Needless to say, these lives collide as the book begins on the path towards publication and towards saving or ruining careers and companies...a path that places everything at risk and everyone in danger of their lives.

Is The Accident great literature? Definitely not. What it is, however, is an exciting, entertaining and suspenseful thriller that demonstrates that Pavone's successful debut with The Expats was no accident. The one minor criticism I have is that the book tends to jump too much back and forth between time periods, characters and geographic locations; which, at times, made me feel I needed a scorecard to keep track of things. Despite this perceived flaw, The Accident is a book I think most thriller lovers will enjoy.

I received an eBook of The Accident from the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest, objective review; which is what I've provided. I hope you find my review helpful in helping to decide if The Accident is a book for you.

3.0 von 5 Sternen hard to get into 20. März 2014
Von Susan Bryan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Someone once told me that I needed to be able to sit down with a new book and read the first 100 pages. I have never had that time so never thought this was particularly true.....until this book. I started this book, restarted, and re started again. I thought about doing a flow chart of characters so when I could read a few chapters I wouldn't be so lost. I loved the plot and my only real complaint, and this is probably the fault of the e-reader, is when switching back and forth between present day and 25 years ago, those paragraphs need to be in italic so it is readily recognized. Drives me crazy when I am reading along and the very next paragraph is something from the past. No page break, no indentation - something so I don't need to go back to see what I might have missed! Would I recommend, yes, but don't think it is as good as his first book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too much easy mayhem 19. März 2014
Von Rosemary Wells - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
There is a tremendous flaw in this book. The whole story is based on a very flimsy conceit.
Many characters die violently in order that multiple paper copies of a tell-all celebrity career destroying manuscript and its xerox copies be captured and shredded.
In any semblance of the real world, at the very first in-office appearance of this manuscript, the pages would be scanned and put on disc, not just xeroxed and passed along hand to hand in carry-bags. The scans would be on email and irretrievable. Every publisher and agent does this.
The rest of the book is action packed gobbledy-gook, well narrated but not very believable.
"The Accident" needed an editor, badly!
