There are two kinds of spy-hopping in “The Travelers,” Chris Pavone’s third and most furiously peripatetic novel. The first is what an inquisitive whale does when it shoots its head above water.

Mr. Pavone keeps his readers’ heads spinning and his main character, the travel writer Will Rhodes, on the run.
