The bestselling author of All Night Long and Falling Awake takes us beyond the everyday boundaries of the mind--and the heart--in a compulsively readable new novel of power, deception and danger.
Level-ten parasensitive Clare Lancaster has resigned herself to the fact that she may never find a suitable mate. A human lie detector, any falsehood--no matter how subtle--sets her blood racing. And most people, to one degree or another, hide behind a facade.
Including her father's new business "consultant," Jake Salter. His careful conversation walks a delicate line between truth and deception. But it is with his help that Clare begins to unravel a web of conspiracy and murder involving the powerful Arizona family that she just became a part of. Caught in a dizzying storm of secrets, lies and half-truths, Clare and Jake will plunge into an investigation that demands every bit of their special gifts, as something more than mere attraction sparks between them . . .
