Almost done reading this exciting spy thriller. I like the way this story kept me guessing what next?

O.K. book. A bit confusing as author jumps from character to character. Hard to follow.

Great book. Could not put it down.

Chris Pavone just keeps getting better with each novel. The Travelers kept me guessing almost until the end. Loved the plot twists, the different locales, the intriguing yet believable characters. The ending was satisfying too. Well constructed, well paced, well written. Keep 'em coming, Mr. Pavone.

The Travelers is a fast-paced, globe-trotting novel filled with CIA intrigue. What better cover for a spy than to be a travel writer? Pavone creates edge-of-your-seat thrills that leave you guessing until the end.

I agree with the commenter, bluehydrangea, and they may be right with the comparison with North By Northwest, but I found myself being reminded of Hitchcock's movie, Charade - - the original one with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn (not the horrible remake with Marky Mark Wahlberg!).

Much better than THE ACCIDENT, not quite as good as THE EXPATS, but nevertheless an enjoyable light spy thriller that moves at a great pace.

In this complex, intelligent novel, travel writer Will Rhodes is completely unaware that his boss is running a spy agency alongside his travel magazine. In fact, he only learns about it when a woman shows up at his door with a gun and firm orders to recruit him, willingly or not, to the CIA. From there, an international chase ensues, while Will's marriage gets increasingly tense as he spins more and more lies. If John Le Carré doesn't pack enough punch, and Robert Ludlum isn't cerebral enough, The Travelers might be right up your alley.

Enjoyable enough, if a bit long. It's a bit like North by Northwest (the movie) in places. Prepare to be confused.
