Review: The Expats: A Novel

The Expats: A Novel
The Expats: A Novel by Chris Pavone

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

One fourth of the way in, I guessed what was going to happen. Flipped to the last quarter, and yep, "mystery" solved. The jumping from location and time exists only to hide a very obvious, silly plot. Flat, stereotypical characters can't hide behind the author's plentiful knowledge of location because the descriptive passages read like info dumps. I can't believe this book is getting so much buzz.
