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. Careening from Nice to London and Moscow to Kashmir to prevent nuclear disaster, Middleton is unaware his prey has changed and the act of terror is far more diabolical than he knows. Will he discover the identity of the Scorpion in time to halt an event that will pit the United States, China, and Russia against each other at the brink of World War III? A follow-up to the award-winning The Chopin Manuscript, The Copper Bracelet brings together 16 of the world's most celebrated thriller writers including Lee Child, Joseph Finder, David Hewson, David Liss, and Lisa Scottoline to each write a chapter of this pulsing tale. Once again, Jeffery Deaver set the story in motion, and brings it to its shocking finale.

"What's the link between a copper bracelet found on the wrist of a would-be killer in the south of France and a construction project in Kashmir? In this international thriller--which moves from France to London, from Florida to Russia and beyond--16 authors riff on this enigma as the stakes rise and the plot thickens. Bringing back Harold Middleton and his group, "the volunteers" from 2007's CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT, this serial audiobook taunts and teases, but some listeners may find that the chapters are uneven and the story comes up short. Narrator Alfred Molina, however, keeps the story's complications interesting with a top-notch reading. Molina's accents make this sound like a full-cast recording; his perfect pacing and tone keep this melodrama engaging. K.M. 2010 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
