Quotes

'I defy anyone to read the first twenty pages of this breakneck novel, then try to put it down for five minutes. This is smart suspense at its very best'

John Grisham

'<i>Two Nights in Lisbon</i> is sensationally good – timely, important, layered with ticking suspense, driven by an ominous drumbeat that accelerates like a panicked heart. My thriller of the year so far'

Lee Child

'Chris Pavone's pacey, well-plotted thrillers are riveting and great fun to read, and <i>Two Nights in Lisbon</i> is his best yet. This one is not to be missed'

Karin Slaughter

'There's no such thing as a book you can't put down, but this one was close'

Stephen King

'I absolutely loved Chris Pavone's <i>Two Nights in Lisbon</i>, an unputdownable thriller that's his best novel yet. It stars a strong and savvy heroine who wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, and the action never lets up. This is a masterly, sleek, and sophisticated novel about love, marriage, and truth. Read it!'

Lisa Scottoline

'Weaving together hairpin Hitchcockian suspense and true moral heft, Chris Pavone's <i>Two Nights in Lisbon</i> is his best yet – utterly timely and brimming over with surprise, nuance, cunning, and a palpable weight'

Megan Abbott

'<i>Two Nights in Lisbon</i> is such a richly satisfying novel in so many different ways: it is a tense, intricately plotted thriller; a nuanced and moving character study; a sharp-eyed social critique; an immersive tour of a fascinating city and culture. I finished this book and immediately wanted to read it again'

Lou Berney

'An elegantly twisting, lyrical, rocket-paced international thriller of the first order. With sterling prose, layered characters, searing insights, and gripping suspense, Chris Pavone writes with a deep knowledge of the world we live in – its many injustices, flaws, and the bending, dangerous road we sometimes must take to justice'

Lisa Unger

'Aside from the elegant writing and compelling characters, <i>Two Nights in Lisbon</i> manages to be a total barn burner, with twisty surprises from start to finish. I couldn't predict a thing, nor could I put it down'

Lisa Lutz
