You wait, desperately, for news of your daughter.
At last, the door opens.
But it is not the negotiators, or the FBI.
It is her kidnapper.
And he has a gun . . .
Two days ago, life was normal.
How did it end like this?
Every crime scene begins at the end. To know what happened, you must work backwards, piecing together the events that came before. The ultimate thriller writer, Jeffery Deaver puts your brain - and your nerves - to the ultimate test with THE OCTOBER LIST, in a masterful mystery that unfolds from the end back to the beginning with many a breath-taking twist along the way.
A clever, demanding stand-alone . . . As the ingenious plot folds back on itself, the reader has to reevaluate and reinterpret the constantly shifting "facts" in the case. The finished picture finally emerges with a shock of recognition. This is brilliant craftsmanship in a vastly entertaining package. ( Publishers Weekly)
In THE OCTOBER LIST, the always entertaining Jeffery Deaver attempts the almost impossible: the back-to-front thriller, beginning with its climax and ending with the planning of the initial crime . . . It's very readable ( The Times)
Jeffery Deaver's most fiendish thriller ever . . . The reader is never lied to in Deaver's brilliant shell game, merely misdirected, and the best part of this trick is that despite being in on the game, we continue to make false assumptions . . . as the pace quickens and the story continues to backtrack, solid evidence, established plot points and sturdily built characters all begin to come undone, until what started out as an interactive game becomes a truly unnerving exercise in deception. ( New York Times)
This will keep you gripped right to the last page ( Press Association)
Even halfway through, it seems possible that Deaver has been defeated by the mind-boggling technical challenge of delivering surprises in back-to-front time. But after the reverse journey reaches the couple's first meeting, his gamble is thoroughly vindicated by a series of twists in which he resembles a conjuror who each time seems to have performed his final trick, but then tops it. ( Sunday Times)
Praise for master thriller writer Deaver ( :)
'Devious, diabolical and devilish ' ( New York Times)
The pace is terrific, the suspense inexorable, and there is an excellent climax . . . If you want thrills, Deaver is your man. ( Guardian)
Sometimes the purest escapism can only be found in a knuckle-bleaching thriller that messes with your blood pressure. This is a job for Jeffery Deaver ( Saga Magazine)
A child abduction thriller written in reverse, it explains the first (last) chapter with tremendous forward propulsion . . . there are still plenty of Deaver's trademark twists and turns. It is a work of genius ( Evening Standard)
