Gabrielle is sitting in an apartment in Manhattan, watching the clock. Her daughter has been kidnapped, she's shot and killed a man, and is trying to negotiate with the kidnapper. He wants the October List, and he wants money. The doorbell rings...
That is the end of Gabrielle's story, and the first chapter of the novel. The next chapter is the scene which came before, and what follows is what happened before that.

"The most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world." (Daily Telegraph)
"If you want thrills… Deaver is your man." (Guardian)
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
"Extra clever plotting"
A crime novel moving back in time seems
impossible but Deaver pulls it off.
Anything that starts at the end
It made me nervous for the characters; They were
all beautifully rounded
I always expect to enjoy a Jeffrey Deaver novel,
I love his feints but this is a masterpiece .... travellling
backwards through a crime novel & still being surprised
is a joy!
"Backwards story too hard to follow"
The headline says it all, the story might be interesting - about a kidnapped daughter and other things, but I got tired of the first part of the book describing things in reverse and I never finished it.
Different order to story?
None of it
"One of his best."
Confusing at first and I kept losing the plot!!! Gradually you become hooked and what a good hook it was.
"Confusing at first but keep reading"
Not the best I have listened to but well read and eventually all makes sense
I was going to stop listening after about 10 minutes but glad I kept going
