Publisher's Summary

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.

Yuck

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Different plot Better characters.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jeffery Deaver again?

Yes.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of January LaVoy?

She wasn't bad, but hard to judge with the story

What character would you cut from The October List?

all of them

Any additional comments?

Can I go lower than one star? I LOVE even crave Deaver books this was pointless annoying and due to style gave you no way of having any connection with the characters. Flat Flat Flat.

Not my Favorite Deaver

What disappointed you about The October List?

I really didn't care for the backwards timeline. The story had all the twists that one becomes used to and enjoys with a Deaver novel. To be true, some of the twists would not have been possible had the book been written sequentially. I figured one before we were told, but the others left me saying, "HUH??".

What do you think your next listen will be?

Already queued up -- John Sanford's "Storm Front"

What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

January brought some of the characters -- especially Josephs "sing song" voice.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The October List?

I wouldn't cut -- but perhaps cut-and-paste -- the scenes in their correct order.

Any additional comments?

I am perchance too linear...
