The Expats

The Expats - 3.5 stars. Tension in this international thriller about an ex-spy mother of two is greatest around the question of if and when she will tell her husband that she worked for the CIA. Pavone does a good job of drawing out the intrigue, combining the mundane details of daily child care with the international flair of a Luxembourg setting. The narrator of the audio version, which is how I read the book, was very flat (although she could do a French accent quite well) and sometimes made it difficult to distinguish between characters.
