Jeffery Deaver came up with the basic plots and wrote each story’s opening and closing chapters, while various other writers (Joseph Finder, Erica Spindler, and Lee Child, among them) contributed a chapter. I understand this was initially an audio book. It actually would work quite well as a serial story (audio or in print), where the passage of time would tend to erase the reader's/listener's immersion anyway. 4 people found this helpful.

Martin Conisby, embittered by his five years of slavery on the Spanish galleon Esmeralda, escapes during a sea fight and makes his way back to England, determined to avenge himself on Richard Brandon, who was the cause of his father's death and his own ill-treatment.

Mr.Bean
This is two novelettes in one volume, both written round robin style with a different author for each chapter - in this case Jeffery Deaver wrote the first and last chapters for each of the novelettes. I have read much better round robin stories. These stories seem to wander a little too much as action moves around the globe, and good guys and villains appear and are sometimes killed off (or sometimes are resurrected). It is hard to tell who your friends are as villains sometimes have different agendas and work against each other.

Overall, it is interesting enough for three stars, with some chapters being better than others, but it is a long ways from being award winning.

For a better novel written round robin style, see No Rest for the Dead Edited by Sandra Brown.

This collection reminds me of the parlor game Story Telling. A story starts with a premise, and is passed from one person to the next in an attempt to find entertaining continuity. Intended for entertainment and usually fueled with alchohol for inspiration, the story usually takes some absurd twists and turns. So it is withthis collection. The most absurd twist withthis collection takes place with Lee Child, who gets so absorbed in musical technicalities that the point is lost for most readers. There seems to be some effort to duplicate Dean Brown's use of classical art as a plotline with classical music instead, but was so far over my head ( and I assume many readers) to the point of distraction.

I think I'm being generous in giving this three stars.

I bought the Audiobook of "The Chopin Manuscript" as it was being released, out of loyalty to my favorite author, Jeffery Deaver. It had exciting plot twists, but the inconsistencies drove me up the wall. Here's an example, which won't involve a major spoiler: a character is murdered in his home, and the author of that chapter stresses his having been extremely security-conscious--meaning that the killer had to be someone he knew. But Deaver, in his wrap-up, has the killer turn out to be, not only a stranger, but an obviously dangerous-looking individual whom the victim never would have let in. The contradiction could have been explained away in a few sentences--heck, I could have written my way out of it! But Deaver simply doesn't bother.

At another point in "Chopin," an author's establishing that it was "morning" left me extremely confused about the timeline. Had Character A been talking to Character B on the phone after Character B was killed? Or...just how late the previous evening had characters been having dinner? And how many hours would it have taken B to drive 150 miles? The problem never would have occurred to me if an editor had deleted that unnecessary reference to "morning."

Worst of all, I found Deaver's final plot twist ridiculous.

I was stunned when "Chopin" was named Audiobook of the Year. What must the competition have been like?

Still, I loyally bought "The Copper Bracelet." But I couldn't force myself to start listening to it--and was delighted when I could, instead, read "Watchlist."

Had editors corrected any of the inconsistencies in "Chopin"? Nope.

On the whole, I enjoyed "Bracelet" more than I had "Chopin"--probably because I could read all of "Bracelet" at once, without having time to think about what had been established in each separate chapter.

But once again, I felt cheated by the ending. This time, the problem was a plot device involving the U.S. presidency. In my opinion, it doesn't work--wouldn't have been plausible in any time period since the 1930s.

I love the novels of many of the contributors to WATCHLIST, but failed to realize in buying this book that what I love is their skill at plunging the reader into a credible world for several hours. The individual chapters in WATCHLIST are quite good (and it's fascinating to see how different writers tackle a situation), but overall the two novellas suffer from coitus interruptus. Just as you begin to get into one writer's tale, you're interrupted by somebody else's take on the story. It's entertaining, and Jeffery Deaver does a great job with the setup and wrapup, but you just can't be thrilled (the point of a thriller, no?) when the timer is going off every 20 minutes for another writer to step in.

I understand this was initially an audio book. It actually would work quite well as a serial story (audio or in print), where the passage of time would tend to erase the reader's/listener's immersion anyway.

Don't usually read books that are written by a group of authors. This book provides a good reason for tht decision. However, it gave ony one author when I received it.

Story was ok, but a little jerky as you can imagine with a group of authors and one ending a chapter to give problems that the next author has to undue or at least chnge for their ownl purposes.

Ok if you like this kind of thing.

This book is fascinating. Just when you think you've figured out the plot and where the characters are going, another author takes over and changes the whole dynamic. Great fun!
