The List by J.A. Konrath

The ListThe List by J.A. Konrath

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

JA Konrath is the author of six novels in the Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels thriller series, the latest of which is Cherry Bomb.

THE LIST is a bit of a departure for Konrath. It's a technothriller about a group of ten people who all 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.

If the Kindle had back jacket copy, it would read:

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


Action packed and enjoyable. I would have liked a little more character building and background but overall a good read. I read this because I am in the midst of the 'Jack Daniels' series and knew that this was loosely tied to that series. In hindsight this book is so loosely tied that it is practically nonexistent, but I am glad that I went ahead and read it. Seems that the author may have left an opening for another book. I really enjoyed the characters and would not mind seeing them again.
