Our first picture of Allison is in the moments after her death. Then the story moves backward in time: 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. The only sure thing is her place in a vortex of half-truths, threat, and suspicion. When her nightmare is over, where will she be? In the company of friends - or the company of liars?

For those who love stings, (and who doesn’t) this book written backwards is difficult at first and when one gets over the difficulty (worse with audible format because you can’t stick your finger in the page to reorient) it’s the most fantastic book of all time. If one could read it backwards, it would be just a great story. Listened to this way, once you adjust to the backward and forget about it.. it’s so incredible, again and again, that you just listen with your jaw hanging open.
This is one to listen to often. May be my best listen ever.
I don't know what the author was smoking when he wrote this. It is ridiculous and difficult to follow. Maybe it was written on a dare. I dare you to buy it.
Starts at the end and then goes thru what went before which is confusing. What makes it worse is that they also recall things that happened even earlier. Decided to listen to it backwards from last chapter to the first and at least understood
I've read several of David Ellis books and this one was no stunner. As usual a lawyer is being prosecuted, a sexual affair of infidelity is front and center, and the storyline was all over the place... difficult to follow. The narrators are wonderful but the plot did not give them much to work with. No more David Ellis for me.
