Hi! I am enjoying this story so far but want to comment that the medical realism is... iffy at best. Type 2 diabetics, by far the most common, almost never undergo treatment that causes hypoglycemia (low blood sugar.) Type 1 diabetics may experience hypoglycemia, but it is not caused by going too long without eating: 20 years ago, insulin "peaked" at certain times and thus required users to eat on a schedule. Now, basal insulins (which do not peak) are used, or a steady small stream of very fast acting insulin is constantly pumped into the person's body with an insulin pump.
Hypogylcemia might happen for a diabetic on insulin a couple times a week, but it would definitely not be predictable, and has nothing to do with not eating- in fact, not eating combined with the high stress situation would probably RAISE his blood sugar! Hypoglycemia RARELY results in loss of consciousness even when untreated, as your body dumps glycogen to raise your glucose and compensate for the excess insulin.
Furthermore, you would never find a diabetic on insulin not carrying around some form of hypoglycemia treatment (like glucose tablets) or their insulin. If I were about to go and try to take over a courtroom, you can be pretty sure I'd have my substitute pancreas with me.
I don't mean to be a complete nitpicker, but a lack of medical realism completely kills stories sometimes because it really is just -so- implausible.

Awww I love the ending, it leaves the reader to make up their own mind as to what happens yet but it's still a great conclusion to the story! And I loved the suspense in chapter 5 too! Well done, and please come and write more for lie to me (Ria) soon!
Love Renette xxx

Great story. The title reminds me of Bones though. :) But awesome story.

Loved the ending! I was surprised when Ria enforced Gillian leave-that was a nice bit of trickery! But so was Lightman drugging the food.
Oveall, nicely played. :)

I'm not sure if I should be relieved or worried that Lightman has a plan...
