The List

Goodreads Summary:
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.

My Review:
This was my second read, but it was just as good, if not better, the second time. It's really amazing that he can write horror that could also be categorized as a funny techno-thriller police procedural as well as a medical thriller to some extent. Oh and there is an appropriate level of love interest. This book is every genre and does them all amazingly well. I'd definitely recommended this book to anyone who enjoys horror.

This book is about two cops trying to track down a ring of killers while being aided by a female martial arts expert who has contacts in Hollywood (and is also one of the ones being hunted down). She seems more like a federal agent than someone in Hollywood and her actions reflect that. It's not fluffy, it's a strong thriller along with all of the other genres I mentioned above. It's also quite a page-turner and highly unpredictable.
4/5 stars
