The October List

The October List

DEAVER. DANGEROUSLY GOOD.

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.

‘Deaver’s most fiendish thriller ever. . . 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

Reviews

Deaver writes crime fiction - thrillers you want to race through - and he's bloody good
<i>The Big Issue</i>
The most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world
<i>Daily Telegraph</i>
Praise for master thriller writer Deaver
:
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
<i>Saga Magazine</i>
The pace is terrific, the suspense inexorable, and there is an excellent climax . . . If you want thrills, Deaver is your man.
<i>Guardian</i>
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
It's everything we've come to expect from a man at the top of his game . . . a great read
<i>Sun</i>
'Devious, diabolical and devilish '
<i>New York Times</i>
Jeffery Deaver is grand master of the ticking-clock thriller.
Kathy Reichs
Deaver dispenses expository bits and cliffhangers with a mastery that'll make you smile even more broadly after you realize how thoroughly you've been hoodwinked. Perhaps the cleverest of all Deaver's exceptionally clever thrillers. If you've ever wished you could take the film Memento to the beach, here's your chance.
