Product description

"Psychological thriller writing at its best. Cancel appointments and give up on sleep. It's that kind of book." --Jeffery Deaver For years, Sarah Farber and her best friend, Jennifer, kept what they called the Never List: a list of actions to be avoided at all costs, for safety's sake. But one night, against their best instincts, they accept a cab ride--one with grave, everlasting consequences. For the next three years, they are held captive with two other girls in a dungeon-like cellar by a connoisseur of sadism. Ten years later, Sarah's abductor is up for parole and she can no longer ignore the twisted letters he sends to her from prison. But when Sarah decides to confront her phobias and reconnect with the other survivors she begins unraveling a mystery more horrifying than even she could have imagined. A blazingly fast read with eerie similarities to the recent kidnapping case in Cleveland, "The Never List" is a smart, riveting, and bold pageturner that will leave readers awake all night with the lights on.

Review quote

"As gripping as last summer's "Gone Girl"--but darker, and with an eerie timeliness--Koethi Zan's debut novel . . . is this year's edge-of-your-towel beach reach." --"Elle" "A perfect breezy thriller for a hot day at the beach." --"Entertainment Weekly" "This is one scary throat-grabber... As twisted and terrifying as any novel in years." --"Parade" "Thoroughly enjoyable nail biter." "--"Ralph Gardner Jr., " Wall Street Journal" "It is being billed as a page turner, and the author is being compared to Gillian Flynn, whose "Gone Girl" was the big book of summer 2012. I think you'll need thicker skin for this one though!" "This fast-paced, disturbing thriller boasts a chilling premise as well as a layered first-person narrative full of shocking twists and turns." --"Library Journal" "Zan's debut novel is shocking and disturbing. The intense psychological thriller combines a horrifying plot, well-developed characters, thought-provoking psychoanalysis and some great phrasing. Read it if you dare." --"RT Reviews," 4 1/2 stars "Zan's first novel is a haunting depiction of the emotional scars left on women held in captivity." --"Kirkus" "This story is a twisted tale of a courageous woman trying to make sense of a madman's mind . . . For readers looking for a psychological thriller, "The Never List" will be hard to beat." --"BookPage" "And thus begins a solid new series by a capable new writer." --"Mystery Scene Magazine" "A fast-paced, don't-dare-put-the-book-down read that will leave you cringing as your darkest fears emerge from the shadows as Zan takes you to the places you never wanted to go." --"Suspense Magazine" "This summer's most breath-stealing thriller." "A dark psychological thriller, it will touch every nerve you have." --Tami Hoag "A novel with powerful and poignant psychological insig
