The international thriller that Patricia Cornwell says is "bristling with suspense" about an American abroad who finds herself in complex web of intrigue. Kate is a working mother who jumps at the chance to leave behind her double-life, until her past catches up with her in a new exotic locale.
From the Publisher:
Along the cobble-stoned streets of Luxembourg, mother and expat Kate Moore suspects that another American couple are not who they claim to be and as her paranoia grows, she becomes increasingly terrified that her own past is catching up with her. A first novel. 100,000 first printing.
Annotation:
Kate Moore seems just like everyone else in her Luxembourg social circle. Her days are filled with school drop-offs, children's play dates, and coffee socials with other expat moms; her weekends are spent skiing with her husband, Dexter, a banking-security consultant, or taking jaunts to Paris. Kate, however, is harboring a secret that even her husband doesn't know; she once worked as a CIA operative and assassin. She soon learns that Dexter might be keeping a secret of his own, and as their lives unravel in Luxembourg, Julia must call upon her former contacts for help. With a pair of untrustworthy FBI agents added to the mix, THE EXPATS contains enough plot twists and red herrings to keep even the most jaded thriller readers interested.

Praise

"A thoroughly competent and enjoyable thriller with unanticipated twists that will keep readers guessing till the end." (starred review) 12/15/2011

"[This] is a stunningly assured first novel. Kate's character, her CIA experiences, and her new life are examined in granular detail, all of which helps drive an intricate, suspenseful plot that is only resolved in the final pages." (starred review) - Thomas Gaughan 02/01/2012

"Mr. Pavone strengthens this book with a string of head-spinning revelations in its last pages, as layer after layer of deceit is peeled away. (Think of an onion.) The tireless scheming of all four principals truly exceeds all sane expectations." - Janet Maslin 03/12/2012
