Praise for The Travelers:

New York Post ”Best Books of 2016″
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“50 best Books of 2016”

The Travelers does confirm what Mr. Pavone’s first two books have established: that when it comes to quick-witted, breathless thrillers that trot the globe, his are top-tier.”
Janet Maslin, New York Times

“A Hitchcockian thriller… [Pavone] brings on a full slate of characters, sharply etching their dress, their moves, their motives, all the while evoking the world they occupy.”
Washington Post

“Wit, suspense, great scenery, and a cast of dozens propel this well-paced escapade to its (literal) cliff-hanging conclusion; it’s like a “Spy vs. Spy” comic-strip done in 3-D.”
Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

“Pavone continues his run of smart, elegant thrillers with The Travelers…written with wit and charm as well as satirical brio.”
–The Guardian

“Pavone established himself as a highly adept weaver of complicated tales of deceit and danger with an international backdrop and a seemingly innocent central character. This latest is his most effective to date.”
– Financial Times

“[N]obody brings the human aspect of the spy world into focus better than Pavone, and his stellar writing carries the day.”
Associated Press

“Sneaky, insightful and surprising, Pavone’s latest dazzles with its take on modern spycraft, with time for ruminations about the nature of work.” 
– Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Another high-octane thriller…with chapters set in Dublin, Iceland, Mendoza and Paris that race along at dizzying speed, this book is all jet, no lag.”
–Virtuoso Life

The Travelers moves at a brisk pace as Pavone ratchets up the action-packed suspense and infuses his plot with a rich view of far-flung exotic locales…With insight and a bit of wry humor, The Travelers will have readers wondering just what does he do all day?
Oline Cogdill, South Florida Sun Sentinel

“The Travelers puts Pavone’s excellent pacing on parade; it’s a fast, fun read, like binge-watching Alias.”

“Acclaimed thriller writer Chris Pavone seems to have another winner with “The Travelers,” a rock ’em-sock ’em adventure that takes readers from New York to exotic locales like Capri, Bordeaux, Paris, London, Argentina, Stockholm, Dublin, Edinburgh and Luxembourg before it comes to a climax in the boondocks of Iceland…The richly complicated plot keeps Rhodes (and readers) guessing until book’s end.”
St. Louis Post Dispatch

“[One] of the most intelligent thrillers of the year. Engaging, complex, fully fleshed characters with believable backstories and narrative depth and elegance to go along with suspense and derring-do….”
BOOKLIST, starred review

“With its intricate plot pinballing down dual, occasionally criss-crossing tracks, the story offers plenty of page-turning action in exotic locales…”
–Publisher’s Weekly

“A beautifully executed thriller.”
–Shelf Awareness, starred review

“Making subtle commentary in the midst of a beautifully executed thriller and without sacrificing pace has become something of trademark for Pavone, and here he opens the door on the shrinking print journalism industry…Pavone constantly misdirects readers’ suspicions until the bloody, adrenaline-soaked conclusion, and his smart maneuvering makes having the rug pulled from under a missed guess almost as fun as getting one right…The hard-earned resolution leaves plenty of openings for the sequel fans will surely demand.”
Jaclyn Fulwood, Shelf Awareness

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, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Make Me

“I love Chris Pavone’s writing, it’s smart and elegant and brilliantly intertwines intrigue with menace.”
PETER JAMES, International bestselling author of The House on Cold Hill
