Doctor Lomas, she knows, is a broken man, nothing like the proud figure she has seen in the company brochures. She stifles the instinct to think of him as a victim, though a victim, in many ways, is precisely what he is. It is hard to look at this man, barefoot in boxer shorts and a rumpled white T-shirt with stained armpits, with flyaway hair and an emaciated frame, and see the promising scientist he once was. The doctor is crying uncontrollably, his chest heaving and tears flowing. Part of her job is seeing the worst in people, watching them feel, firsthand, the collapse of their lives.
In the Company of Liars. For Jennifer, Jim, Jenna, and Ryan Taylor. She hears the man running through the house, his bare feet slapping across the hardwood floor. Back bedroom, she is told via her earpiece by a member of the team at the rear of the house, looking through the kitchen window, blocking an escape route. They flood in behind her, a team of eight agents, but she is first down the hallway. Her back against the wall, both hands on the Glock at her side, she shuffles up to the bedroom door and listens. Over the sound of her team’s shoes on the hardwood, she can hear sobbing. She reaches across the width of the door and tries the knob.

A daughter and an ex-husband need to save their own skins. Our first picture of Allison is in the moments after her death. Then the story moves backward in time like the acclaimed film Memento: an hour before, then a day, back and back until we're at the beginning and can see what's really happened and most shocking, what has not. At every turn, Allison knows what she sees may not be what's real

An attorney from Chicago, he serves as Counsel to the Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives. But this book starts off near the end of the story (a common thing, and one I don't generally object to), but then rather than reverting to the beginning of the story in the next chapter, each chapter steps back a day or two. Every chapter.
