Audible, Inc. today launched a groundbreaking, episodic novel called The Chopin Manuscript. This new novel, a collaborative creation by the world’s top thriller writers, is available only as serialized downloadable audio from audible.com.
Created by 15 of the most recognized thriller writers (including New York Times best-selling writers Jeffery Deaver, Lee Child, Joseph Finder, and Lisa Scottoline), this collaboration began when Jeffery Deaver wrote the opening chapter of the work and handed it off to fellow best-selling writer, David Hewson, who wrote chapter two. This process continued, with each successive chapter written by 13 different authors. The intense thriller-in-progress finally returned to Jeffery Deaver, who wrote the final two chapters before the work was narrated by noted actor Alfred Molina.
Starting today, Audible customers can receive the novel serially. Two to three chapters will be automatically delivered each week for eight weeks.
Many of the participating authors are well-known to observers of The New York Times best seller list. Lee Childâ€™s Bad Luck and Trouble hit #2 on the list; Joseph Finderâ€™s Power Play debuted at #7: and Jeffery Deaverâ€™s latest book, The Sleeping Doll, hit #15. Lisa Scottoline, David Hewson, and other contributors to The Chopin Manuscript are also well known for their large and avid followings.
All the writers are members of International Thriller Writers, which partnered with Audible on the creation of The Chopin Manuscript.
