Description

A tense and timely debut novel set amid the terrorist attacks on Paris. Paris Metro is the gripping story of an American journalist compelled to reexamine her convictions as terrorism threatens to engulf her family. It's 2015, and Kit is living in Paris, estranged from her Iraqi diplomat husband and raising their teenage son, Ahmed. Having spent the years since 9/11 covering the Middle East-from Baghdad after the U.S. invasion to Syria during the refugee crisis-Kit is enjoying a quieter life. But when Charlie Hebdo is attacked and a cartoonist friend of hers is killed, and then terrorists storm the Bataclan, Kit's Parisian world is shattered. As she is drawn back into reporting, she begins to suspect that Ahmed may be running with the terrorists. Paris Metro is a deeply moving story about the psychic effects of the Age of Terror.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Elisabeth Rodgers portrays the complicated life of a journalist in the Middle East with intensity. Like the author, Catherine "Kit" Kitteridge is an American-British reporter covering war in the Middle East from her home in Paris. Kit marries a secretive Iraqi named Ahmed and adopts his son--actions that don't turn out so well. The listener is as much in the dark as Kit about what is going on in her own family. Is her husband or young son a terrorist? Are the events in her life coincidences or the result of machinations by her husband? Is there any solution to her troubles? M.S.
