Interviews with the people behind The Copper Bracelet

Aural Noir: Online Audio

The Copper has two interviews of interest (available to account holders). Both concern a rather unusual audiobook called The Copper Bracelet. It’s the sequel to The Chopin Manuscript – an audiobook created as a collaboration for the International Thriller Writers group. Here’s the novel’s description:

A peaceful picnic in the French countryside explodes in violence. A mysterious assassin hisses a deadly threat. And events are set in motion that could propel India and Pakistan down the road to nuclear confrontation.

Two years after the events of the “Audiobook of the Year” THE CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT, former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton and his Volunteers once again must crack a secretive conspiracy that not only threatens their lives, but the stability of the world. Their race against time will take them from London to the U.S. to Russia and beyond. And at the heart of it all is one question: what is the secret of the Copper Bracelet?

THE COPPER BRACELET is written by Jeffery Deaver, Gayle Lynds, David Hewson, Jim Fusilli, John Gilstrap, Joseph Finder, Lisa Scottoline, David Corbett, Linda Barnes, Jenny Siler, David Liss, P.J. Parrish, Brett Battles, Lee Child, Jon Land, James Phelan under the direction of project editor Jim Fusilli.

This is a serial novel with multiple authors, each author taking a chapter, continuing the story. I remember a similar audiobook, years ago, called Naked Came The Manatee. The most memorable thing about it was getting to see all the different writing styles.

Here are the two files of interest:

1. “Exclusive Interview with Alfred Molina” (the narrator)

2. “Authors Roundtable Interview with Jeffery Deaver, Lee Child, David Hewson & Jim Fusilli”

You can get both of these downloads (as well as the first chapter of the novel) HERE.
