Summary

Five names on a list. The first two are dead. The third is yours.

A rip-roaring, addictive, intense and emotional thriller for fans of Lucy Foley, Ruth Ware, Phoebe Morgan, CL Taylor and Lisa Jewell....

Beth Belmont runs every day, hard and fast on the trail near home. She knows every turn, every bump in the road. So when she spots something out of place - a slip of white paper at the base of a tree - she's drawn to it.

On the paper are five names. The third is her own.

Beth can't shake off the unease the list brings. Why is she on it? And what ties her to the other four strangers?

Then she discovers that the first two are dead.

Is she next?

Delving into the past of the two dead strangers, the truth Beth finds will lead her headlong into her darkest, deadliest and most dangerous nightmares....

Critic reviews

"Compelling, unsettling and utterly addictive, The List got deep under my skin as I read it in a single sitting." (M W Craven, author of The Puppet Show)

"A sharp psychological thriller. A captivating premise and an engrossing read with twists and turns that will keep youhooked to the very last page." (Adam Hamdy, author of Black 13)

A terrifying story of guilt and remorse. A chilling reminder that the past doesn't always stay there no matter what stories we tell ourselves or others! The truth sits in the shadows and will always come to light' Alex Hart, author of Take Me Home)

First half was quite good but 2nd... I would recommend

I enjoyed the first couple of hours of this book but then there were 3 solid hours where barely ANYTHING happened and the author just went over and over AND OVER what had happened! I found myself saying ‘I know!!!!’ many times and even guessed the next line a few times-very tedious... and the ending wasn’t worth my perseverance unfortunately.

falls apart

Decent premise, but somehow disappoints in the execution.Maybe one of those cases where the publishers push an idea a little too far?

Disappointing

Really wanted to enjoy this book but half way through couldn’t wait for it to end.
