    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.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who likes to start a book in the middle.


    What could Jeffery Deaver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Never got through enough to know. My download started at Chapter 33 or 34. No indication that there were 2 parts.


    What didn’t you like about January LaVoy’s performance?

    Her voice is too syrupy, obnoxious. When she did not irritate me, I started to drowse off.


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

    I don't know


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry I bought this. I would love to get my credit back.

    Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers-a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana - he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

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

    Had they ended the story! This was a blatant attempt to sell the next installment in this series.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not Preston and Child


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was fine until the authors could not find a way to end the story.
