You wait, desperately, for news of your daughter.
At last, the door opens.
But it is not the negotiators, or the FBI.

And he has a gun . . .

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.
