If you’re on the list, someone wants you dead.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Eight Perfect Murders comes the heart-pounding story of nine strangers who receive a cryptic list with their names on it—and then begin to die in highly unusual circumstances.

Nine strangers receive a list with their names on it in the mail. Nothing else, just a list of names on a single sheet of paper. None of the nine people know or have ever met the others on the list. They dismiss it as junk mail, a fluke—until very, very bad things begin happening to people on the list.

First, a well-liked old man is drowned on a beach in the small town of Kennewick, Maine. Then, a father is shot in the back while running through his quiet neighborhood in suburban Massachusetts. A frightening pattern is emerging, but what do these nine people have in common? Their professions range from oncology nurse to aspiring actor, and they’re located all over the country. So why are they all on the list, and who sent it?

FBI agent Jessica Winslow, who is on the list herself, is determined to find out. Could there be some dark secret that binds them all together? Or is this the work of a murderous madman? As the mysterious sender stalks these nine strangers, they find themselves constantly looking over their shoulders, wondering who will be crossed off next…

It is a poorly plotted "mystery" novel. The focus is given to the character of the 9 individuals who are slated to die with "mystery" being they apparently have nothing in common. Therefore, first half of the story focuses of the character profiles with the intent to do its best to hide the connections, so, there is little or no plot for the first half. When the motive of the killer is learned, these murders designed to gain retribution does not seem to deliver the needed gravatas to those who were meant to feel the pain of the retribution killings. And the very end of the story is truly incredulous. The audio book is carried by a very good narrator.

Really enjoyed this! Too often I can predict who the villain is, but this one kept me guessing!
