Product description

There were four of us down there for the first thirty-two months and eleven days of our captivity. And then, very suddenly and without warning, there were three. Even though the fourth person hadn't made any noise at all in several months, the room got very quiet when she was gone. For a long time after that, we sat in silence, in the dark, each of us wondering what this meant for her and for us, and which of us would be the next in the box. Never Get In The Car - For years, best friends Sarah and Jennifer kept what they called the 'Never List': a list of actions to be avoided, for safety's sake, at all costs. But one night, they failed to follow their own rules. Never Go Out Alone After - Dark Sarah has spent ten years trying to forget her ordeal. But now the FBI has news that forces her to confront her worst fears. Never Take Risks - If she is to uncover the truth about what really happened to Jennifer, Sarah needs to work with the other women who shared her nightmare. But they won't be happy to hear from her. Because down there in the dark, Sarah wasn't just a victim. Never Trust Anyone.

Review quote

"Throat-clutching from the outset! The Never List stands as a sterling example of psychological thriller writing at its best. Cancel appointments and give up on sleep. It's that kind of book" -- Jeffery Deaver "Sent icicles down my spine. One of the scariest thrillers I've ever read. This should be on every mystery reader's must-read list" -- Tess Gerritsen "Instantly enthralling and relentlessly addictive, The Never List will have your eyes boggling and your jaw dangling from the very start - not least because of an absolutely genius humdinger of a twist... A thrilling, frightening, fast-paced and thought-provoking triumph of a debut. Turn off your phone and disable the doorbell, because you will not want to be disturbed" Heat "A read-in-one-go sort of book, and if you're after a genuinely disturbing thriller to take on holiday this summer, it'll be hard to beat" -- Alison Flood Observer "From the first page of The Never List you have to know how this terrifying book will possibly end...it's impossible to put down. Even a casual glance will tell you this is no ordinary thriller: you will lose sleep over it. A book to devour in one sitting" -- Elizabeth Haynes "A hauntingly gothic story of captivity, escape and revenge" Grazia "The Never List got its sticky, sharp talons into me on the first paragraph and wouldn't let go until I'd finished it in less than two days...a stylish and impressive debut thriller" -- S.J. Bolton "A nonstop thriller with heart-wrenching twists" -- Jed Rubenfeld "A book never to be missed. Zan's razor-sharp debut combines the very best of page-turning suspense with classic head-game thrills and chills" -- Lisa Gardner "Cleverly plotted and highly entertaining, The Never List is a haunting psychological thriller that begs to be read in one sitting. Be prepared" -- Alafair Burke "The Never List is a perfect entertainment. Thrilling, super smart, witty, and just about the most distracting thing in my recent life. I've stayed up past my bedtime, missed whole subway stops, left children at the playground. First readers will have to know what happens, and then they'll be awed by the flair with which Koethi Zan makes it happen. This novel deserves all the success it is sure to have" -- Darin Strauss "This fast-paced debut turns the traditional crime novel on its head" InStyle "If you like dark and disturbing thrillers, this stylish debut is for you... This will hook you in till the end but should come with a warning - it's not for the faint-hearted" -- Deirdre O'Brien Sunday Mirror "A perfect page turner for the beach" Now "Full of heartbreaking twists and turns, you'll not be able to put it down" My Weekly

Editorial reviews

From the first page of The Never List you have to know how this terrifying book will possibly end...it’s impossible to put down. Even a casual glance will tell you this is no ordinary thriller: you will lose sleep over it. A book to devour in one sitting.
