A woman accused of murder is caught in a tortuous psychological maze that leaves her only one escape—suicide. Or does it? Told in reverse chronological order, from its enigmatic end to its brilliant beginning, In the Company of Liars is a tantalizing tour de force—a “compelling new novel of intrigue, murder, and terrorism” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

"In the Company of Liars is centered around a woman on trial for murder - Allison Pagone, who is caught between competing forces, each represented by someone who may not care if the pressure kills her in the end. A prosecutor wants Allison convicted and put on death row. An FBI agent believes she can squeeze her into ratting on her family. A daughter and an ex-husband need to save their own skins. And circling them all, a group who would prefer to kill her quietly and anonymously, but whose members also are not what they seem." "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 are at the beginning and can see what's really happened - and most shocking, what has not. At every turn, Allison knows that what she sees may not be what's real. The only sure thing is her place in a vortex of half-truths, threats and suspicions. When her nightmare is over, where will she be? In the company of friends - or the company of liars?"--BOOK JACKET.
