Publisher Description

One of Kirkus Review's "Best Books of 2013"

The shocking end is only the beginning . . .

#1 bestselling author Jeffery Deaver has created the most riveting and original novel of the year-a race-against-the-clock mystery, told in reverse.

THE OCTOBER LIST

Gabriela waits desperately for news of her abducted daughter.
At last, the door opens.
But it's not the negotiators. It's not the FBI.
It's the kidnapper.
And he has a gun.

How did it come to this?

Two days ago, Gabriela's life was normal. Then, out of the blue, she gets word that her six-year-old daughter has been taken. She's given an ultimatum: pay half a million dollars and find a mysterious document known as the "October List" within 30 hours, or she'll never see her child again.

A mind-bending novel with twists and turns that unfold from its dramatic climax back to its surprising beginning, THE OCTOBER LIST is Jeffery Deaver at his masterful, inventive best.

Unusual

I've read a lot of novels in my life, but this is the first one that was written backwards. Lol. Honestly, I wasn't sure I liked it until the final couple of chapters (2 and 1) made everything clear. For those readers who like to flip to the end and read it first, DON'T!!!!! Deaver does a wonderful job of weaving everything together in this unusual mystery.

Because of the way The October List is written, I don't think readers will bond with any of the characters. But it is definitely worthwhile reading!
