Kurzbeschreibung

From International Thriller Writers comes Watchlist: two powerful novellas featuring the same thrill cast of characters in one major suspenseful package. The Chopin Manuscript and then The Copper Bracelet were a collaboration by some of the world’s greatest thriller writers, including Lee Child, Joseph Finder, Lisa Scottoline, and Jeffery Deaver, who conceived the characters and set the plot in motion. The other authors each wrote a chapter and Deaver then completed what he started, bringing both novellas to their startling conclusions.

In the first novella, The Chopin Manuscript, former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, locked within its handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to America to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins. But the greatest threat will come from a shadowy figure from his past: the man known only as Faust.
 
Harold Middleton returns in The Copper Bracelet–the explosive sequel to The Chopin Manuscript–as he’s drawn into an international terror plot that threatens to send India and Pakistan into full-scale nuclear war. Careening from Nice to London and Moscow to Kashmir to prevent nuclear disaster, Middleton is unaware that his prey has changed and the act of terror is far more diabolical than he knows. Will he discover the identity of the Scorpion in time to halt an event that will pit the United States, China, and Russia against each other at the brink of World War III?

3.0 von 5 Sternen 50:50-Qualität 8. Februar 2011
Von K. Beck-Ewerhardy TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Idee, mehrere prominente Autorinnen und Autoren einen Reihenroman schrieben zu lasses ist ganz nett. Hier sind es nun zwei davon in einem Band, wobei in beiden Geschichten das gleiche Ermittlerteam vorkommt. Es geht um die Vefolgung von Kriegsverbrechern in der ganzen Welt.

The Chopin Manuscript

Ein spannender und schneller Thriller, dessen Auflösung vielleicht ein wenig zu konstruiert wirkt, der aber insgesamt sehr unterhaltend ist.

The Copper Bracelet

Es gilt in Krimikreisen als ziemlich unfein, wenn Auflösungen von Rätseln durch immer wie-der neue aus dem Hut gezogene Kaninchen erzielt werden und ab der Mitte dieser Geschichte geschieht dies eigentlich ständig, so dass diese Novelle am Ende jede Glaubwürdigkeit verloren hat. Der zweite Teil dieses Doppelbandes ist darum wirklich nicht zu empfehlen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Reminder Of Why I Stopped Reading Thrillers 11. Dezember 2010
Von Elly Sparks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I stopped reading mysteries and thrillers a few years ago because they weren't as good as this. Lately though, I've been stumbling on more and more books like Watchlist. Fast paced, catch your breath moments, can't put it down.
I downloaded this when it was free and feel like I've won the lottery.
I highly recommend to anyone.
If it can make a chick-lit lover happy, I suppose this book could make just about anyone happy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thrilling and exhausting 31. Dezember 2010
Von Meri Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I read this book of novellas on my Kindle - wow! The plots twist and turn as each author gives a different spin to the story.The main characters carry thru, but some of the supporting characters might be developed by one author, only to be killed off or ignored by another - or, that character might develop a larger role in the story. (Unlike Star Trek, you never knew who was the red shirt). Just as you would think something was truth, the next author might spin it another way - black, white or grey? You'd think something was finished, and it would pop up again - exhausting - I couldn't put it down!

I was unimpressed with this effort. Although the authors clearly had fun writing it, it was not much fun reading. Characters were undeveloped, relationships were unexplained and story details were inconsistent. Worst of all, it lacked wit. Unfortunate, because the plot concept surrounding the Chopin manuscript had potential.

3.0 von 5 Sternen 1 page turner 1 disappointment 25. April 2012
Von Cloggie Downunder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Watchlist is an omnibus of two thriller novels in the Harold Middleton series: The Chopin Manuscript and The Copper Bracelet.
The Chopin Manuscript, a novel based on an idea by Jeffrey Deaver, was written, initially as an audio book, by Deaver and 14 other thriller authors for the International Thriller Writers organisation. The main character is Harold Middleton, a former war crimes investigator who now lectures in music in Washington DC. Middleton is given a previously unknown Frederic Chopin manuscript, a document he believes to be a forgery, by a piano tuner in Warsaw, who is found murdered the next day. Soon enough, Middleton has good reason to worry about the safety his family and his former war crimes investigative colleagues. This is a novel where the plot twists so many times, it will leave the reader dizzy; very few of the characters are what they first seem; subjects as varied as artwork purloined by the Nazis, war crimes, nerve gas, embedded secret codes, terrorism, airport security, abortion drugs and of course, music, are all touched on. I found it fascinating how each different author took the story and ran with it for their chapter, yet the story moved seamlessly forward. Definitely a page-turner.
The Copper Bracelet is the second in the Harold Middleton series by Jeffrey Deaver and 15 other thriller authors. Like The Chopin Manuscript, it was first published as an audio book. It is set two years after The Chopin Manuscript and features characters from that novel: Harold Middleton, Charlotte Middleton, Eleanora Tesla, Jean-Marc Lespasse and Felicia Kaminski. The story this time centres on Devras Sikari, the Kashmiri recipient of educational support from someone only known as The Scorpion. After the events of the Chopin Manuscript, Middleton has reformed his Volunteers, and they actively seek Sikari as they are convinced of an international terror plot with dire consequences for Pakistan and India and possibly the rest of the world. This time, authors touch on the subjects of copper poisoning, heavy water, patent legislation, thermobaric explosives, chicken breeds and coding and encryption. The action jumps from Nice to London, Moscow, Paris, Tampa and Kashmir. The plot is convoluted and the politics rather intricate; the melodramatic climax is rather contrived. And it seems that several of the authors didn't read the previous book (giving Charlotte a "late" husband instead of an imprisoned one) or even the previous chapter (crediting Felicia with knowledge of events that happened while she was unconscious). Altogether, rather a disappointing sequel to The Chopin Manuscript.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too obvious 23. August 2011
Von M. Martin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
While I liked the concept, I found it somewhat disconcerting to try to keep up with the flow of the different writing styles. I liked the twists and turns in the plot and tried to get into the characters but it was always in the back of my mind that it was like a bunch of short stories using the same plot. Honestly, I would think twice before reading another book of this type.
