The Accident by Chris Pavone
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this author's other romp, The Expats, much better than this one. Too much about book publishing for me.
A mysterious manuscript lands on the desk of a publisher, an editor, and a producer, and all other sorts of people in "the bizness" and then people start dying. The manuscript is a tell-all about a media mogul and someone doesn't want it published. I think the biggest problem for me was that I didn't care about The Author (hated how his identity was kept a secret when you knew who it was) or the media mogul.
The jumping back and forth didn't improve things, and neither did The Author being referred to as such when we knew who he was. The big twist at the end didn't feel like much of one to me. And I don't think people in the book publishing business can act like super-secret spies--dodging bullets and shooting weapons. Just seemed too unbelievable to me.
