Publisher's Summary

A peaceful picnic in the French countryside explodes in violence. A mysterious assassin hisses a deadly threat. And events are set in motion that could propel India and Pakistan down the road to nuclear confrontation. Two years after the events of the Audiobook of the Year - The Chopin Manuscript - former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton and his Volunteers once again must crack a secretive conspiracy that not only threatens their lives, but the stability of the world. Their race against time will take them from London to the U.S. to Russia and beyond. And at the heart of it all is one question: What is the secret of the Copper Bracelet?
Sixteen of the world's greatest thriller writers collaborated on The Copper Bracelet. Once again, as he did with The Chopin Manuscript, Jeffery Deaver wrote the first chapter. Then, each successive author wrote a chapter in turn, finally returning it to Deaver to complete this thrilling sequel.

Critic Reviews

"This was like playing on an all-star team, and all the hits were home runs." (Lee Child)

"A feast for the senses, The Copper Bracelet continues the standard of excellence established by The Chopin Manuscript. Action, intrigue, suspense, they are all there. Another certified no-question-about-it-winner from a remarkable collection of talent. Bravo." (Steve Berry)

"What a blast to collaborate with some of the greatest suspense writers around on the thriller event of the year." (Joseph Finder)

"I can't think of a more enjoyable writing experience in my twenty-five years of being a fiction author than writing The Copper Bracelet and its predecessor, The Chopin Manuscript. We writers spend way too much time by ourselves in dark rooms, and it was a delight to emerge from the cave and hang out, so to speak, with my peers. I have to say that I sat down to read the manuscript with more than little trepidation. I needn't have worried. I was blown away...[and was] fascinated to see how a group of authors with vastly varied writing styles and approaches to creativity produced such a cohesive thriller with a relentlessly fast-paced narrative. (And, okay, I'll admit, I got a voyeur's kick in seeing how my talented co-authors ply their craft.)" (Jeffery Deaver)

Excellent Read!!!

Phenomenal, addictive, interest-grabbing from the start and steams along at a steady pace. This book is incredibly well written and Alfred Molina is brilliant.
I have lost a lot of sleep listening to this book that refused to let me turn it off.

The only downside is I have to wait another year for more.

Glad I got it!

I had to write a review, since my impression is different than some of the others here. I downloaded at the recommendation of a friend and really enjoyed it. I agree with the reviewer who liked getting every author's best effort. Each chapter has a story arch within it, which keeps the pacing going, and yes, each chapter ends with a cliffhanger the next author has to deal with, so that's fun! The story is complex, but no more so than a John Le Carre book! And the reading by Alfred Molina is very entertaining. He gives it nice texture. I would and will recommend this to others!

A Total Disappointment

I was looking forward to listening to this book backed up by so many famous writers. It turned out to be a total mess where each writer tries desperately to continue the line of thought of the previous one. You could certainly see the joints and after a while I lost interest in the characters and what happens to them, never mind trying to understand what is going on!They were also many factual inconsistencies, as if the writers could not be bothered to read properly what went on before. Even the fact that Jeffrey Deaver wrote the first and last chapters couldn't save the day and in my opinion it should remain as an experiment not to be repeated.
