A thirty year old science experiment, about to be revealed...
Seven people, marked for death, not for what they know, but for what they are...
THE LIST by JA Konrath
History is about to repeat itself
THE LIST is a bit of a departure for Konrath, who is known for his Jack Daniels mystery series. It's a technothriller about a group of ten people who each have tattoos of numbers on the bottoms their feet, and don't know why.
One of them, a Chicago Homicide cop named Tom Mankowski, has had one of these strange tattoos since birth. When he investigates a violent murder and discovers the victim also has a tattooed number, it sets the ball rolling for an adventure of historic proportions.
To say more would give away too much.
Like the Jack Daniels series, THE LIST combines laugh out loud humor with serious suspense and thrills.
ABOUT THE KONRATH/KILBORN COLLECTIVE
The Konrath/Kilborn Collective is not a series. It's an ongoing collection of horror and technothriller novels that can each be read as a standalone. Some feature characters who appear in more than one story.
If you are a more sensitive (or adventurous) reader, the Konrath/Kilborn scale rates specific categories from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) to give you some idea if this is your kind of book.

I really enjoyed this story. For me it was one of those that I couldn't stop listening to. It is a fast paced, interesting thriller, with great characters and even some good humour. The narrator is excellent.

Quite a Tasty Mix!
Where does The List rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's at the top of my list of unexpectedly good books. Describing the plot will not make you want to read it. Ignore any plot summaries. You just have to dive in. The book does make you suspend an awful lot of realism but it works. It's a genre mix that grabs you immediately with a little science, a lot of action, a bit of horror, some humor and a whopping "what if?"
What was one of the most memorable moments of The List?
The relationship between Roy and Bert. Funny!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Who said history is dead?
