Publisher's Summary

Tautly wound and expertly crafted, Two Nights in Lisbon is a riveting thriller about a woman under pressure, and how far she will go when everything is on the line. The audiobook is read by AudioFile Golden Voice and Audie Award winning narrator January LaVoy.

“I defy anyone to read the first twenty pages of this breakneck novel, then try to put it down for five minutes. This is smart suspense at its very best.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham

You think you know a person . . .

Ariel Pryce wakes up in Lisbon, alone. Her husband is gone—no warning, no note, not answering his phone. Something is wrong.

She starts with hotel security, then the police, then the American embassy, at each confronting questions she can’t fully answer: What exactly is John doing in Lisbon? Why would he drag her along on his business trip? Who would want to harm him? And why does Ariel know so little about her new—much younger—husband?

The clock is ticking. Ariel is increasingly frustrated and desperate, running out of time, and the one person in the world who can help is the one person she least wants to ask.

With sparkling prose and razor-sharp insights, bestselling author Chris Pavone delivers a stunning and sophisticated international thriller that will linger long after the surprising final moment.

Don’t bother reading unless you enjoy…

… authors who spend the first 11 chapters of their book bashing America, southerners, women named Amber( not kidding), Taylor Swift, blue lives matter, lacrosse, her mother, 20 something’s and all men in general. By chapter 12 I gave up - DNF

Surprised of all the 5 star reviews.

Reading the description of the story, this book was right up my alley. Or so I thought. It was not. It certainly was not a thriller, a mystery or suspenseful. The lead character was pathetic to me throughout the entire book, especially lying to her first husband about his child, lying to her child etc. This did come off as a man hater book. Not an interesting book and not mysterious 2 nights in Lisbon.

Total chick lit. Dudes, run away now!

OMFG. Embarrassing female empowerment tropes. Who buys this crap? I'd never let any of my four daughters near this. I want my money back.

Non-thriller

I saw this author and book on a recommended new books list. Based on reviews of his previous books and my love of thrillers, I decided to give it a try. The reader was great; story not so thrill-packed. It floundered from thriller to soap opera to treatise on rape. I stuck with it, but there were sections where I found myself wishing the writer would move things along. For me, this is a ho-hum effort and I regret using a credit on it.

Waste of money

This book needed an editor. Gaping holes. Lengthy discourse of woe is me. I think it was supposed to be feminist polemic disguised as a preposterous novel. Major disappointment

one long depressing lecture

This book should win an award for the most negative character in a starring role. The obvious is shoveled at us ad nauseum; men bad, capitalism bad, life bad, social media bad. We are supposed to care that Ariel's husband is kidnapped. One begins to think he just ran away unable to listen to her screed anymore. The author must be having a bad day because he uses this book as vehicle to vent through Ariel spouting one stereotype followed by another. For example, . Ariel used to be interested in fashion, clothes all things superficial, so when she changes her life she chops off her hair, buys a farm and a bookstore. Somehow this is to indicate she is now an evolved person. Sloppy writing and thinking.

Boring

With the plot I expected the book to be a page turner, but for me… too long and boring.

If only one...

If you are going to read or listen to one new book this month, make it Chris Pavone's TWO NIGHTS IN LISBON. Pavone takes you on a slow ride through an incredible story told by a very talented narrator, January LaVoy. Together they deliver a well crafted story that intrigues the mind and tugs at soul of the listener. You develop a empathy for the characters emotionally while you try to devine the many layers of the plot of the novel which is so well hidden in the story. You do not feel short changed by the conclusion if the book but are well satisfied for the main characters with the ending.

Absolutely awful!

I can’t begin to say how terrible this book was. One extremely long and tiresome agenda driven woke rant on all that is wrong with America. Every male character is portrayed as weak, stupid, violent and/or criminal. The heroine of the story has “it all figured out” in her quest to smash the evil patriarchy, yet she is somehow justified in lying and breaking the law to achieve her goals. The plot of the story (which was weak at best) got completely lost in the midst of her endless judgmental and self righteous tirades of all that is wrong in our culture and world-. Always pointing the finger at men and our patriarchal world. I’ve never hated a protagonist more. Just a truly gross book. Save your time and money.
