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.

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!
Had to buy the book too
This was a fascinating story told from finish to start and every time I thought I knew what was happening I was surprised by the next twist in the tale. I had to buy the book in a physical form and re-read it as it made flipping back and forth to check things out much easier. I've bought it as a gift for a friend too.
They were all a bit nasty actually
I have both listened to it and read it and he made it very exciting
Can't recommend it too highly
