This is a super crime/murder story told in reverse order. If you've always thought that reading the ending of a book would spoil the story, this book proves you wrong. The first few chapters are a small struggle until you get into the rhythm of the writing. As soon as you get it though, you won't be able to stop turning pages to find out what happens next, or in this case, what happened previously. It's like watching a drama series on TV that starts with the ending, and the rest of the show is a flashback. Excellent book with surprises you never see coming... Maybe because they already happened. Feel free to email with any questions. ~LeAnn

A woman accused of murder is caught up in a maze that leaves her only one escape -- suicide. Or does it? Told in reverse chronological order. Excellent book, different, makes you think. Very enjoyable.

Intriguing book. Written backwards. And very successfully.

complex intelligent thriller that begins at the end of the story-it goes backword in time each day telling about the day before. The begining of the story is a surprize at the end of the book.
