Chris Pavone made a huge splash with his debut novel, The Expats. That novel was about an American housewife living in Belgium with her family, who have no idea that she used to be a spy. The Accident, like The Expats, involves secrets worth killing for, and, like that novel, it has a hugely suspenseful plot and thrills aplenty. I admit that I love a thriller, and especially one involving spies, and especially one involving female protagonists, which makes it no surprise that I loved The Accident. What makes The Accident even more fully in my wheelhouse is the fact that it is a book about books, and more specifically, about the publishing industry. Thus, in addition to thrills and books, this book provides insight into an industry that is generally pretty closed off to the rest of the world. Who knew book publishing could be so lethal? This was a fun, fascinating, and fast read. Highly recommended.
