The Expats, by Chris Pavone

It is fun to read a first novel that is this good because now I'm anticipated many more great books to come from this author.

This novel is hard to characterize:  is it a spy novel, a thriller, or a drama?   Any way you look at it, it is quite well written, with plot twists aplenty, and difficult to put down.

By the way, the story is told in the lead character's voice, a woman, and I was surprised to see at the end from the book jacket that the author is a male, not female, "Chris."    I suppose that's a proof point of a job well done.

This is a five star novel; I strongly recommend it.
