Book Review: White Lies



White Lies by Jayne Ann Krentz

Krentz, a former librarian,writes under several pen names, including Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle. I've not read any of her titles, but this one was well reviewed as part of her "Arcane Society" series.

This is a typical mystery with a bit of romance tossed in, but with a twist. The main characters are members of the Arcane Society, people who possess paranormal abilities. Clare Lancaster, a level 10 para, can detect falsehood, no matter how subtle, and when she is accused of murder, a race to solve the mystery begins with the help of Jake, a "hunter".

This is an interesting twist on the typical mystery, though I didn't really feel as though I got to know the characters, or got inside their head. Still, good enough...
