Watchlist is a unique collaboration by twenty-one of the world's greatest thriller writers including Lee Child, Joseph Finder, David Hewson, S.J. Rozan, Lisa Scottoline, and Jeffery Deaver, who conceived the characters and set the plot in motion; In turn, the other authors each wrote a chapter and Deaver then completed what he started, bringing each novel to its startling conclusion.
* The Chopin Manuscript: Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, locked within its handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans.
* The Copper Bracelet: Harold Middleton returns in this explosive sequel to The Chopin Manuscript as he's drawn into an international terror plot that threatens to send India and Pakistan into full-scale nuclear war.
Fans of the TV series 24 will best appreciate this two-part serial thriller written by 22 members of International Thriller Writers. Based on an idea by Deaver (The Broken Window), who provides the opening and closing chapters of each segment, the volume recounts the adventures of middle-aged Harold Middleton, an ex-U.S. military intelligence officer. In part one, The Chopin Manuscript, the discovery of a previously unknown Chopin score leads to murders, betrayals, and frantic efforts to stop a villain code-named Faust from carrying out a terrorist outrage. Part two, The Copper Bracelet, sets Middleton and his allies on the track of a Kashmiri planning the assassination of the U.S. secretary of state. While the contributors include many of the biggest names in the genre (Lee Child, Joseph Finder, Gayle Lynds, S.J. Rozan, etc.), the constraints of the form all but assure homogenized prose, thin characters, and stock action scenes atypical of their solo work. (Jan.)

1 . Fantastic!
Posted January 02, 2011 by Mindy , Breckenridge, MNConsidering these 2 stories were written by a variety of authors, the flawless flow from chapter to chapter is amazing. The story is fantastic - keeping me enthralled from page to page; constantly on edge, trying to keep up with the twists and turns. I loath predictable stories, and these were anything but! A fabulous read!
