What the Critics Say

"This was like playing on an all-star team, and all the hits were home runs." (Lee Child)

"A feast for the senses, The Copper Bracelet continues the standard of excellence established by The Chopin Manuscript. Action, intrigue, suspense, they are all there. Another certified no-question-about-it-winner from a remarkable collection of talent. Bravo." (Steve Berry)

"What a blast to collaborate with some of the greatest suspense writers around on the thriller event of the year." (Joseph Finder)

"I can't think of a more enjoyable writing experience in my twenty-five years of being a fiction author than writing The Copper Bracelet and its predecessor, The Chopin Manuscript. We writers spend way too much time by ourselves in dark rooms, and it was a delight to emerge from the cave and hang out, so to speak, with my peers. I have to say that I sat down to read the manuscript with more than little trepidation. I needn't have worried. I was blown away...[and was] fascinated to see how a group of authors with vastly varied writing styles and approaches to creativity produced such a cohesive thriller with a relentlessly fast-paced narrative. (And, okay, I'll admit, I got a voyeur's kick in seeing how my talented co-authors ply their craft.)" (Jeffery Deaver)

Excellent Read!!!

Phenomenal, addictive, interest-grabbing from the start and steams along at a steady pace. This book is incredibly well written and Alfred Molina is brilliant.
I have lost a lot of sleep listening to this book that refused to let me turn it off.

The only downside is I have to wait another year for more.

Glad I got it!

I had to write a review, since my impression is different than some of the others here. I downloaded at the recommendation of a friend and really enjoyed it. I agree with the reviewer who liked getting every author's best effort. Each chapter has a story arch within it, which keeps the pacing going, and yes, each chapter ends with a cliffhanger the next author has to deal with, so that's fun! The story is complex, but no more so than a John Le Carre book! And the reading by Alfred Molina is very entertaining. He gives it nice texture. I would and will recommend this to others!
