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 to go backward, that's why it is not done too often. Makes a bad book worse.
It took a couple of chapters to get my mind moving in the wrong direction, but when I did, I couldn't put "The October List" down. It's a great read, and the ending (the beginning) is a complete surprise, twice!
The October list
The author did a great job of keeping you interested all the way to the end. Very good read. Towards the middle you wonder how you are going to get answers to the to the questions accumulated so far in the story but the end is brilliantly executed.
