Book Review-The List - A Thriller-JA Konrath

Friday, June 23, 2017

I haven't read a really good techno/thriller in a while. There are quite a few really horrendous images and thankfully also quite a few very humorous moments. Just the thought that this could possibly happen did not leave me with warm and fuzzy feelings. Do not read this one at night------but do read it!! Once the images that I was left with get subdued deep in my subconscious--I will be reading more of this author's novels.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A billionaire Senator with money to burn...
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.

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.

THE LIST by JA Konrath
Scary - 6
Violent - 6
Funny - 7
Sexy - 4
Crossover - Characters from THE LIST appear in HAUNTED HOUSE and WEBCAM

This sounds like it would be a book out of someones nightmare. Two of my adult children would love it, maybe a good gift idea. The part about him having the same tattoo since birth and it matching the murdered man could make a book for me as that does interest me.

The List sounds like a great read I will have to check out along with the Jack Daniels mystery series. I will have to share it with my sons who like reading technothrillers. Thanks for sharing this great review and the other reads.

I am not a huge thriller/scary person. I am more about the romance stuff :) But I bet my husband would love it!
