The Travelers is a fast-paced, globe-trotting novel filled with CIA intrigue. What better cover for a spy than to be a travel writer? Travel writers go to far-flung, exotic locals, meet people, and there are no red flags on why they travel so much. Will Rhodes is a personable, intriguing character looking for perfection in all areas of his life; from drinking the perfect glass of wine to finding the perfect wall sconce. While on assignment in France, his life begins to turn upside down when he meets Elle Hardwick, a woman who may wreck his marriage, career and life. Caught in the middle of a spy ring he does not understand, Will can't tell who is working for the CIA and who the bad guys are. Can Will uncover what is going on before it is too late?

Pavone expertly keeps the story moving without revealing too much too soon and readers piece together the puzzle right along with Will. Pavone creates edge-of-your-seat thrills that leave you guessing until the end.
