"There’s no such thing as a book you can’t put down, but this one was close." —Stephen King
"Smart suspense at its very best."
John Grisham

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.

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 page.


  • Two Nights in Lisbon

    By velofellow
    A dishonest “thriller” that is not worth your time. Dishonest in the sense that key information is withheld, but not by trickery or sleight of hand but just lying about what is happening.
  • Not great

    By Caroljeanl
    Author went ack and forth so much in the background of the heroine it was a bit difficult to follow.
  • What is happening with Chris Pavone?

    By West by Northwest
    I have bought, read and enjoyed all four of Chris’ prior novella. This book is so different and disappointing- his main character is the subject of multiple sexual abuses and he lectures readers about (partial list) toxic masculinity, the power of elites in the US, climate change, bureaucratic incompetence, sexism, ageism and abuse of technology! The whole tone is so negative and different from his prior books. I am (reluctantly) going to pass on Chris’ future offerings.

    I did not know what to expect from Chris Pavone. Immediately I was drawn into the plot. This books holds your attention until the very end. One of the better books I have read this year.

  • Not sure what the excitement is about

    By bravedara
    I picked this book because “it’s a page turner”. And now I am struggling through 100 pages and have decided not to torture myself. I will be donating this book to our building library hoping someone else might find it more interesting. Have it three stars (instead of two) thinking that maybe it gets better.
  • Not interested

    By bozzardlycrow
    Haven’t read it and won’t. Really tired of woke sheep. I want to be entertained when I read. If You don’t entertain me and you go out of your way to offend part of your customers, you don’t get my money.

    This is a terrific mystery and thriller. The twists and turns were surprisingly effective. The characters were interesting and well developed. The final chapters were true page turners. I thank the author for writing such an unusual revenge tale. Many new spin-off tales are hinted at by the characters and plot.
  • Why?

    By Vassmy
    A really good interesting story totally ruined with woke theories and political propaganda.
  • Another Author Gets Political

    By Kupckacke123432
    I actually really liked the story. I could of done without the not so subtle bashing of conservatives. It’s apparent Chris has a strong distain for America which explains why he lived in Europe for a while. I will not be reading anymore of his books. When authors get political the offend 50% of their audience.
