From the Publisher
“I nominate Kate Moore, the protagonist of Chris Pavone’s sizzling new thriller The Paris Diversion, for patron saint of working wives and mothers everywhere.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“I tore through The Paris Diversion, completely caught up in the thrilling story of one remarkable day in Paris. With its twisting, high-stakes plot, all-too-human characters, and unrelenting tension, I couldn’t read it fast enough! I absolutely loved it—highly recommended!”—Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door
“A fast-paced and heartfelt thriller set in the world of espionage and terrorism that echoes the best of John le Carré.”—Associated Press
“Pavone’s timely new thriller spins through 12 hours and multiple voices to a startling conclusion.”—BBC Culture
“Thriller writing at its absolute best. With echoes of Graham Greene and John le Carré, Pavone’s novel accomplishes that rare feat of being both a nonstop adventure ride and a smart, stylish and compelling meditation on family, courage, responsibilities, and the relationships we create, for good and bad, throughout our lives. The Paris Diversion does far more than divert; it grips us from the very beginning and doesn’t let go.”—Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author of The Cutting Edge
“[A] fast-paced thriller . . . shelve alongside le Carré, Forsyth, and other masters of foreign intrigue.”—Kirkus Reviews
“As full of fast-paced twists and turns as a great car chase, you will race through Chris Pavone’s new book. This is a thrilling story of international intrigue set in my favorite city in the word—Paris. I loved it!!”—Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa, New York Times bestselling author and TV Host
“Sleek, cunning and breakneck, Chris Pavone’s The Paris Diversion sweeps you into its frenetic rhythms from its first pages. With a sprawling cast of characters, with its scissoring plot twists, and especially with Kate—as rich and complicated a hero as you could hope for—it keeps you returning for more and more. A knockout.”—Megan Abbott, author of Give Me Your Hand and You Will Know Me
“Chris Pavone is a master craftsman. A natural storyteller. Whether we’re being driven around Paris in a car trunk or walking through the Luxembourg Gardens, his descriptions leap off the page. The Paris Diversion is a terrific read.”—Jason Matthews, New York Times bestselling author of the Red Sparrow trilogy
“An ingenious, engrossing sequel to an ingenious, engrossing original. If only all follow-ups were this good.”—John Connolly, New York Times bestselling author of the Charlie Parker thriller series

The book is written from such a jumble of points of view that it will leave you dizzy and confused, constantly wondering what the hell is actually going on. It's just plain bad story telling, and the gratuitous interjections pushing the author's anti-Trump politics just makes the whole struggle even more insulting. Who cares what his political beliefs are? Just tell us a decent story, mate, and you can believe whatever you want.
The publisher should be ashamed of foisting this book off on trusting readers who expect more from them than this, but it probably isn't. The executives are still getting their big salaries. What do they care if they've conned you into buying this mess? Readers care very much what they spend their money and time on. Publishers... not so much, apparently.
“The Paris Diversion” is author Chris Pavone’s recently released fourth international novel. The novel begins at 0844 hrs., Paris time. The novel ends the same day just after 1959 hrs., Paris time. The reader initially believes that a terrorist attack is underway, until they remember the title of the book.
Kate Moore is brought back, from previous novels. She is a former CIA officer and now is with an off-the-books Paris Substation of the CIA. What she actually achieves in her job is not clear, although on this not another normal day in Paris, one does see achievement. The reader also learns that she and her husband Dexter do not get along that well, so why don’t they divorce, perhaps because of the children.
Hunter Forsyth is the CEO of a major multinational corporation. He picked this not another normal day in Paris to hold a press conference announcing a major acquisition. That does not happen as Paris police and an American government official arrive to protect him. He is informed that top Americans are being targeted by the terrorists. All is not what it seems.
370 pages. This reader started to struggle by page 170. Too many sidebars. Too many discussions about the bad marriage of Kate and Dexter. Yet this reader struggled on. Not the best work by author Pavone, but the novel finally comes together, which means one more star for the review. 80 chapters, short chapters, alternating chapters between Kate, Hunter, terrorists and others. Looking forward to the next work by author Chris Pavone.
