Two Nights in Lisbon

Macmillan Audio. May 2022. 14:30 hrs. ISBN 9781250856302. $32.99. THRILLER
The latest exciting, intricate thriller from Pavone (The Paris Diversion) is the tale of a woman now named Ariel Pryce, who awakens in Lisbon only to find her husband John missing. Ariel finds it nearly impossible to convince local police or American Embassy staff of his kidnapping until she receives a ransom request. She doesn’t have two million Euros and must go to the man she hates the most for help; he is a man at the zenith of American politics, about to be named vice president, and had raped her 14 years earlier, resulting in the birth of her beloved son. Ariel convinces him to give her the needed funds in return for a nondisclosure agreement. Each twist and turn comes fast and furious, leaving the reader guessing the tantalizing truth. January LaVoy, AudioFile Golden Voice and Audie Award–winning narrator, is fantastic—she makes the listener loathe the CIA agents, sympathize with Ariel’s increasingly chaotic circumstances, despise the hungry reporters, and wonder about John’s sincerity.
VERDICT While some will guess parts of the ending, getting there is great fun.
