Review:

Deaver dispenses expository bits and cliffhangers with a mastery that'll make you smile even more broadly after you realize how thoroughly you've been hoodwinked. Perhaps the cleverest of all Deaver's exceptionally clever thrillers. If you've ever wished you could take the film Memento to the beach, here's your chance. * Kirkus reviews * It's everything we've come to expect from a man at the top of his game . . . a great read * Sun * Sometimes the purest escapism can only be found in a knuckle-bleaching thriller that messes with your blood pressure. This is a job for Jeffery Deaver * Saga Magazine * Deaver writes crime fiction - thrillers you want to race through - and he's bloody good * The Big Issue * The most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world * Daily Telegraph * 'Devious, diabolical and devilish ' * New York Times * Praise for master thriller writer Deaver * : * This will keep you gripped right to the last page * Press Association * Even halfway through, it seems possible that Deaver has been defeated by the mind-boggling technical challenge of delivering surprises in back-to-front time. But after the reverse journey reaches the couple's first meeting, his gamble is thoroughly vindicated by a series of twists in which he resembles a conjuror who each time seems to have performed his final trick, but then tops it. * Sunday Times * In THE OCTOBER LIST, the always entertaining Jeffery Deaver attempts the almost impossible: the back-to-front thriller, beginning with its climax and ending with the planning of the initial crime . . . It's very readable * The Times * Jeffery Deaver's most fiendish thriller ever . . . The reader is never lied to in Deaver's brilliant shell game, merely misdirected, and the best part of this trick is that despite being in on the game, we continue to make false assumptions . . . as the pace quickens and the story continues to backtrack, solid evidence, established plot points and sturdily built characters all begin to come undone, until what started out as an interactive game becomes a truly unnerving exercise in deception. * New York Times * A clever, demanding stand-alone . . . As the ingenious plot folds back on itself, the reader has to reevaluate and reinterpret the constantly shifting "facts" in the case. The finished picture finally emerges with a shock of recognition. This is brilliant craftsmanship in a vastly entertaining package. * Publishers Weekly *

Book Description Hodder And Stoughton Ltd., 2013. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neu Schnelle Lieferung, Kartonverpackung. Abzugsfähige Rechnung. Bei Mehrfachbestellung werden die Versandkosten anteilig erstattet. - Jeffery Deaver gilt als einer der weltweit besten Autoren intelligenter psychologischer Thriller. Wie kaum ein anderer beherrscht der von seinen Fans und den Kritikern gleichermaßen geliebte Jeffery Deaver den schier unerträglichen Nervenkitzel, verführt mit falschen Fährten, überrascht mit blitzschnellen Wendungen und streut dem Leser auf seine unnachahmliche Art Sand in die Augen. Seit dem ersten großen Erfolg als Schriftsteller hat er sich aus seinem Beruf als Rechtsanwalt zurückgezogen und lebt nun abwechselnd in Virginia und Kalifornien. Seine Bücher, die in 25 Sprachen übersetzt werden und in 150 Ländern erscheinen, haben ihm bereits zahlreiche renommierte Auszeichnungen eingebracht. Die kongeniale Verfilmung seines Romans 'Die Assistentin' unter dem Titel 'Der Knochenjäger' (mit Denzel Washington und Angelina Jolie in den Hauptrollen) war weltweit ein sensationeller Kinoerfolg und hat dem faszinierenden Ermittler- und Liebespaar Lincoln Rhyme und Amelia Sachs eine riesige Fangemeinde erobert.[^]2{#}Jeffery Deaver's extraordinary new standalone thriller begins with his most amazing twist - the book's ending.[^]3{#}You wait, desperately, for news of your daughter. At last, the door opens. But it is not the negotiators, or the FBI. It is her kidnapper. And he has a gun . . . Two days ago, life was normal. How did it end like this Every crime scene begins at the end. To know what happened, you must work backwards, piecing together the events that came before. The ultimate thriller writer, Jeffery Deaver puts your brain - and your nerves - to the ultimate test with THE OCTOBER LIST, in a masterful mystery that unfolds from the end back to the beginning with many a breath-taking twist along the way.[^]1{#}Jeffery Deaver's extraordinary new standalone thriller begins with his most amazing twist - the book's ending. 289 pp. Englisch.
