The Accident by Chris Pavone

the accident pavoneAs dawn approaches, highly respected New York Literary agent Isabel Reed is turning the final pages of a mysterious, hand delivered, totally anonymous manuscript. It is a book full of shocking revelations and disturbing truths – is this the book she’s been waiting for her entire career?  Might this be a book that will change the world?

Meanwhile in Copenhagen, veteran CIA operative Hayden Gray is also on the trail of the manuscript – and the secrets that lie at its heart. For him, quite simply, it must never see the light of day.

Over the course of one long, desperate, increasingly perilous day, Isabel and Hayden try to outwit each other in a race to secure the manuscript, while the nameless author watches on from afar. It’s a high stakes game of cat and mouse. Everyone who knows about the manuscript is in mortal peril. Innocent people may die.

As the action rockets around Europe and across America, and intricate web of duplicities is revealed, stretching back a quarter of a century to a dark winding road in upstate New York, where the shocking truth is buried.

This is the 2nd novel from Chris Pavone, his first  The Expats was published in 2012
