Ehhhhh, not as enjoyable for me as his previous book. Took great pains to develop plot lines, sub-plots and sub-sub plots and took an awfully looong time to get in gear and start moving the story swiftly. Too many reveals in the last 20 pages, took a long time for the payoff. But a better-than-average book in my opinion. ( )

This was an interesting novel. It certainly kept me guessing and I was surprised that Isabel's husband turned out to be the author of the draft AND that HE had done the hitting of the girl with the car. Interesting indeed. It was fine, but not one I'd read again. That's why I didn't keep it after I got it at the TPL. Thanks, library! ( )

Not as good as the "previous" book. Sometimes, a story has too many twists at the end and the reader can't help but doubt their likelihood or veracity. ( )

This was an interesting read that kept me guessing at every turn, but by the end it seemed like there could have been less surprises and more character development. Also, there were a few loose ends that were never tied up, which was a little frustrating. ( )

I don't read many books of this genre, so I'm no expert. That said, it really gripped me. It is the story about an anonymous "tell all" manuscript about a media mogul that is delivered in an unusual manner to a literary agent. As she begins to shop it to publishing houses, fatal consequences arise for many people.

It took me a while to get into the story. There were many short, seemingly unrelated, threads at the beginning, But I persevered and think that the author brought everything together well. For people interested in the publishing industry, and a side-theme on "fake news", this would be a good choice. ( )

The Accident is author Chris Pavones follow up to 2013's the Expats. The Accident is the title of a manuscript, written by Anonymous, detailing the sordid details and scandal involving a powerful media mogul, and his illegal activities in cahoots with the CIA.
Early in his life this mogul, along with Anonymous were involved in an incident that was covered up by the mogul, Charles Wolfes, father.
The story follows the manuscript as its passed along from a literary agent Isabel Reed, our main character, to editor Jeffrey, publisher on the edge of bankruptcy Brad, and ambitious acquisitions person Camilla, who steals the manuscripts with visions of a Hollywood executive producer gig in mind.
Veteran CIA operative Hayden is the man tasked by Wolfe to retrieve the manuscript, assuring that Wolfes Senate ambitions aren't derailed. Hayden is running an "off the books " operation towards that goal. Kate Moore, the protagonist in Expats is a member of Haydens team, but inhabits a minor role in this novel.
The bodies start piling up when the manuscript is procured by those who shouldn't have access, and Pavone, a long time editor, demonstrates his insider knowledge of the publishing industry.
Copenhagen, Zurich, New York, Washington and Los Angeles provide the backdrop for this well written story, which provides several twists that are for the most part predictable, but satisfying. Pavones is an excellent writer, and fleshes out his characters well.
I'm not sure if espionage, or political thriller is appropriate for the Accident. It did keep me awake rather late though. Based on his first two novels, I'm curious to see what Pavone produces next.
