Publisher's Summary

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.

Had to buy the book too

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They were all a bit nasty actually

What does Todd Boyce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I have both listened to it and read it and he made it very exciting

Any additional comments?
