The October List
by Jeffery Deaver
Expected publication: October 1st 2013 by Grand Central Publishing

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.

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.
I’ve been a longtime fan of Jeffery Deaver’s ‘Lincoln Rhyme’ series so I’m very intrigued to read a standalone of his! Sounds fantastic too.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. I've read some Jeffrey Deaver –this one looks interesting but I just can't with any child abducting. Freaks me out way too much (worse fears and all). I'm very curious about the twists and such. Love the "October List" what is it? You'll have to let me know what you think once you've read it.

  2. "A race against the clock mystery told in reverse"? I have NO IDEA how well this will be pulled off, but I admit that's one hell of a way to get me interested in a book. That sounds pretty unique and interesting. I've never read anything by this author, but that might have to change!

    A mystery told in reverse? I don't think I have read anything like that before! It sounds like it could be good if the author manages to pull it off. This title is completely new to me, so thanks for putting it on my radar. 🙂
