The Accident/ Chris Pavone/ 418 pages
The Accident by Chris Pavone is set in the New York publishing world with a bit of spy action tossed in. An unknown person has Isabel Hayden under surveillance in her own apartment. Isabel has stayed awake all night to read an anonymous work concerning the life of an media giant about to run for political office. Once it is known that Isabel has the manuscript the lives of everyone who touches it are in danger. Surveillance and mayhem follow the manuscript across the country. Isabel is in a run for her own life as she realizes death is following the manuscript. Slowly as different people read bits of the manuscript the reader is exposed to the full story. It's a good action adventure tale although the ending is just a little too convenient.
