Watchlist A Serial Thriller (Paperback)
|Twenty-nine international thriller writers collaborate to create two serial novels in one major suspenseful package, from an idea by "New York Times"-bestselling author Deaver.|
From the Publisher:
The Chopin Manuscript and then The Copper Bracelet are collaborations of some of the world’s greatest thriller writers including Lee Child, Joseph Finder, Lisa Scottoline, and Jeffery Deaver, who conceived the characters and set the plots in motion. The other authors each wrote a chapter, and Deaver then completed what he started, bringing both novellas to their startling conclusion and combining the two in Watchlist.
In The Chopin Manuscript, former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frédéric Chopin. Middleton is unaware that, locked within its handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. Middleton returns in The Copper Braceletthe explosive sequel to The Chopin Manuscriptas he’s drawn into an international terror plot that threatens to send India and Pakistan into full-scale nuclear war.

Jeffrey Deaver organized a unique collaboration with 20 other authors--including Lee Childs, Jim Fusilli, Linda Barnes, and David Corbett--in order to produce WATCHLIST. Comprising two serial novellas, "The Chopin Manuscript" and "The Copper Bracelet," the WATCHLIST brings together each author's chapter contribution, framed by Deaver's premises, characters, and conclusions. This is a fascinating literary project that offers thriller fans a special chance to get inside some of their favorite author's heads and see their prose efforts back to back contending with the same story. Plus this process has produced a story unlike any that any of these writers could have come up with on their own.
