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. "I defy anyone to read the first twenty pages of this breakneck novel, then try to put it down for five minutes. This is smart suspense at its very best."--#1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham You think you know a person . . . Ariel Price 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.… (más)

"Waking early became a matter of policy, of character. This was how she wanted to be known, if only to herself: early to rise, early to bed, hardworking between, a serious responsible person, after a misspent youth."

"Ariel decided to bring her whole life under her own dominion, to figure out how to do the things she’d been paying other people to do for her. Most things aren’t so complicated. You just need to be willing to try."

While I loved the two quotes above and, therefore, should have loved the character Ariel, I found the pace of this book so slow that it became a distraction from any good character points Ariel could have displayed. Two Nights in Lisbon had the potential to be fast-paced and full of suspense with twists and turns, but instead it landed with a thud. Reduced to half its weight and that would have been a very different story, literally. ( )

Pandemic read. Bit of a thriller, bit of a stretch of reality, bit of a travel0gue, all of which combined to make it a good summer read. ( )

This page-turner centers around Ariel, a newlywed who has accompanied her husband to Lisbon on a business trip. The action begins right away when her husband disappears from their hotel, and turns out to have been kidnapped for a 3 million dollar ransom. We follow Ariel's desperate efforts to get help from local police and the US Embassy, and along the way we learn that there are secrets in her past that continue to haunt her. It becomes apparent that her husband also harbored secrets, and all is not as it seems. I found the twists and turns thoroughly engaging and satisfying right up to the end, and did not mind a plot that could have seemed manipulative and unbelievable if it weren't so much fun to read.

Two Nights in Lisbon is not a book I would normally read; I don’t generally enjoy thrillers and I generally avoid adding white, male authors to my TBR pile. I sudden lack of books on my many Overdrive accounts and a long flight coincided with me plowing through Chris Pavone’s new book in a little over one day. Ariel Pryce wakes up one morning on vacation in Portugal to find that her husband has been kidnapped, but that just scratches the surface of Two Nights. There’s a lot wrong with the novel — beginning with a man writing about sexual assault — but there’s a lot right that results in a page-turning, topical, and interesting thriller. ( )

This is a cleverly crafted thriller which may take you completely by surprise. When Ariel accompanies her husband, John, on a business trip to Lisbon, she is shocked to awaken to find him missing. He has been kidnapped and the ransom is 3 million Euros. Ariel contacts her former husband and also the candidate for US VP, who took something from Ariel 14 years earlier. As the police, CIA, and journalists become involved, the story is revealed.
There were some tense moments as Ariel navigates through Portugal and all the authorities. I was completely surprised by the reveal. Well done! ( )
