The List

This was a really good book!  I was kind of leery because it was only $2.99 but I took a chance and downloaded it and I'm glad I did.

Tom Mankowski is a Chicago detective.  While investigating a murder, he notices that the dead guy has a numbr tatooed on the bottom of his foot.  This interests and scares Tom because he also had a number on his foot.  As he looks into it, he discovers several others with numbers and the mystery of why they have those numbers becomes a race to save them and the world from an ambitious nut case.

The character were quirky and lively and the humor kept me chuckling. 

I'm definitely going to download more of Konrath's novels.

While visiting the other day I noticed that you were reading The List, so I've been waiting to hear your opinion. I just finished it as well -- and I loved it. There were a lot of twists that I never in a million years expected and I thought it was a really interesting premise. The blend of humor and suspense made me really hate to put it down.
