'I began wondering if it was possible for a thriller writer to pull off a backward-told story that was filled with the cliff-hangers, surprises, twists and turns that are, for me, the epitome of good crime fiction. The task, of course, is to present the twist - the reveal - before giving the facts that led up to it...'
