Présentation de l'éditeur

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


Book Description:

THE LIST is a bit of a departure for Konrath. 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 LIST is approximately 82,000 words long, and is specially formatted for Kindle with an active table of contents.

Praise for JA Konrath's thriller FUZZY NAVEL:

"FUZZY NAVEL is Konrath at his best – a hilariously heartstopping thriller." — Linda Fairstein

"This gripping novel is an adrenalin rush." — Library Journal

"This book moves so fast it was like having the words fired into my head by a machine gun." — Crimespree

Praise for AFRAID (JA Konrath writing as Jack Kilborn):

"AFRAID is a masterpiece of unrelenting horror. And I'm not exaggerating. Masterpiece. It's the best piece of fiction I've read in several years. It simply NEVER lets up." — James Rollins, author of The Judas Strain

"A bloody, terrifying, hurtling assault across a landscape of non-stop mayhem. A guilty, guilty pleasure." — F. Paul Wilson, creator of Repairman Jack

“AFRAID is a true page turner, a novel that offers a million mile a minute action and suspense. Definitely, a must have with constant thrills and chills." — Heather Graham, author of Deadly Gift

"Never have I read a novel so gruesome and simultaneously relentless. This book throbs with unmitigated, inexorable. sheer friggin’ TERROR. You’ll probably need a shrink when you’re done.” — Edward Lee, author of Brides of the Impaler

"Fast and ferocious, this is a dangerous thriller that will take a bite out of you. An absolute must read for anyone who loves the adrenaline rush of a shocking story told with style, speed and savage grace." — Jonathan Maberry, author of Patient Zero

I can well see this novel being made into a movie. It's easy reading, witty and has an acceptable story line. A real fun and entertaining book.

Very enjoyable, you get attached very quickly to the characters. Read in one go, fast pace story.
Interesting pitch, one I hadn't read before in a thriller-chase story

...but totally loved it. Definitely recommend for a weekend read if you like far fetched story lines and gratuous violence!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mesmerizing... 27 avril 2009
Par Neosha - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I downloaded "The List" to my Kindle for two reasons: 1) I'd just finished "Afraid" and I loved it. 2) "The List" was less than $2 and I was intrigued.
Now I feel like I owe Joe money! I was completely entertained from start to finish. I truly could not put it down. Bert and Roy, two of the main characters, had me laughing out loud. Tom is the hero. He's a cop assigned to a homicide and the body has a mysterious tattoo just like the one oh his foot. Joan is a victim turned heroine and she is my kind of woman....strong AND kicks butt. I can't stand the kind of woman who gets tied to the railroad tracks whimpering "save me, save me".
The suspense is tight and the premise is not past the realm of probability.
I don't want to mention much else because I don't want to give anything away!
JA Konrath writes in the caliber of writers like James Patterson, Dean Koontz, and Greg Iles....with a true bend on twisted.
Check it out....download the sample or just give in, go ahead, get the book. I can't wait to see the movie.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Too much blood and gore with a little story thrown in 24 août 2010
Par Libby Mari - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I thought the basic premise of the book, as outlined in the summary, was interesting and different enough to make me curious so I bought the book and started reading. When I was only 10% through the novel (according to my Kindle), already there had been fingers amputated, a beheading, someone's face had been sliced, a dog impaled, a woman attacked twice, and numerous accounts of torture (ie, a man impaled through the anus and then the stake move an inch an hour until it exited through his mouth hours later)that had occured previous the novel's starting point. I don't like graphic violence, and while I was willing to endure it for the sake of a genuine story, it became obvious when the main character was introduced as the clone of Thomas Jefferson that the gratuitous violence was really a distraction from a very odd plot. Couldn't finish it--couldn't stomach the disgusting images that alternated with the silliness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A boatload of fun! 30 mai 2009
Par D. Pease - Publié sur Amazon.com

I just finished the list, and have to say, I'm now a Konrath fan. I've been following his blog on writing for years, but never read anything because I wasn't into the genre he wrote. But when I saw he was selling The List for so cheap for the Kindle (Kindle reader on my iPhone) I decided to give him a try. And like one of the other reviewers said, now I feel like I owe him more money. What a blast of a read. It had everything, a great premise, fun dialogue, political intrigue, hint of romance, and Abraham Lincoln. I love Abraham Lincoln. This is one of those books that I put down and instantly thought what a great movie it would make. Thanks Mr. Konrath for selling it so cheap and writing such a great book. I'll definitely be back for more.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Predictible, Amateur Book with little Scientific Basis and Character Development 5 juillet 2011
Par vansic35 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Since this book was only $2 for Kindle and was described as a "genetic murder mystery," I thought I would give it a try. Unfortunately, there were some serious flaws and the book read like a middle-school level novel with adult-level violence.

THE GOOD:
*It was a quick read, so it ended fast. If you are anything like me, you can't just stop a book halfway thorough, so I had to finish it.
*The book leads easily to a sequel, so if by chance you enjoyed this book, you can read another like it shortly.

THE BAD:
*The Violence. It overtook the story and was very unnecessary.
*The wounds inflicted upon the characters that should have put them in the hospital or at the very least stopped them from walking seemed to only "give them stars" and then allow them to return to normal activities.

THE UGLY:
*The Science. Even though this is fiction, the author discussed in the afterward about how this links closely to modern medical technology, when in fact, it would be impossible to have a camera that can copy the genome of a person completely. Maybe it's a lesson for myself; don't read fiction about the same subject as your dissertation, but the blinding fallacies here would be hard for anyone to ignore.
*The Character Development. One minute, a character is losing his/her best friend and the next minute they are falling in love with someone else. The author gives no time for real emotion to be shown and the relationships that do develop are painfully predictable.
*The Predictability. Everything from the story to the characters are too cut and dry. The "hints" that are needed in good books to connect later in the story are so blatant that you know what's going to happen long before it actually does.
*The Story. Read it for yourself.

BOTTOM LINE:
Don't purchase this book. Put some extra money towards it and read Digital Fortress.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Boring, unbelievable, childish and filled with spelling and grammatical errors 17 juin 2009
Par Hanoch McCarty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This novel reads as though it were written by a junior high student. It's sophomoric and unbelievable. The police procedures are so poorly done (I grew up in a police family...my father and uncle were cops as were so many of their friends) that the protagonists would be fired immediately for their behavior.
The author can't distinguish between homophones like break and brake, sight and site and so on.
Frankly, I found it boring beyond belief but I'm happy for Mr. Konrath that there seems to be an audience for anything. To me the price was no bargain.
