Adult Book Discussion

The Expats

by Chris Pavone

Wednesday, March 4th from 2:30 to 3:30 PM

Led by SRPL Librarians Susan Healy and Cathy Loechner

This debut thriller is clever and highly readable. It stretches the espionage genre boundaries with its wholesome heroine Kate, a young mother with a cozy domestic expat life in tiny Luxembourg. What keeps her up at night glued to the Internet is the suspicion that a couple of casual buddies she met at a coktail party are really assassins. Fueled by her 15 years as a covert CIA agent, Kate's obsession soon leads her to deeply hidden plots that involve 50 million euros, a suddenly flaky husband and red herrings that burst into her comfortable life. Pavone's writing displays the best characteristics of the form and will appeal to fans of suspense giants such as Robert Littell, Helen MacInnes, and Daniel Silva.

Limited Registration began Wednesday, February 4th at the Reference Desk.
