Relationships are challenging enough for most single, over-30 women. For level-10 parasensitive Clare Lancaster, they're a minefield. The elite few who know her secret call her a human lie detector, and any falsehood, no matter how subtle or well hidden, sets her blood racing.
Over the years, Clare has come to accept that someone with her extraordinary talents is unlikely to find a suitable mate. And she's even resigned herself to the fact that everyone, to one degree or another, hides behind a façade - including her recently deceased brother-in-law.
When Clare finds the body of Brad McAllister, the golden child of Stone Canyon, Arizona, the posh residents turn a suspicious eye in her direction. As Archer Glazebrook's daughter, Clare is shielded from the law, but not the gossip. It seems that meeting the half sister and family she did not know until seven months ago was a mistake. Now her father summons her from California to play a role in his business empire, and Clare doesn't intend on making the same mistake twice.
But after meeting Jake Salter, Archer's "business consultant", she is convinced that things aren't what they seem. Salter's careful conversation walks a delicate line between truth and deception, revealing and resisting. Something sparks and sizzles between them - something more than the usual electricity between a man and a woman.
Caught in a dizzying storm of secrets, lies, and half-truths, Jake and Clare will plunge into an investigation that demands every bit of their special gifts. Together, they must overcome their mutual distrust in order to unravel a web of conspiracy and murder.

White Lies: An Arcane Society Novel
The actors/narrators of this book leave alot to be desired....It is read to fast to enjoy and the female voice is annoying to truly enjoy the plot. I enjoyed the story line but the choice of actors and the speed, over acting detracted from the experience.
Good Storyline Great narration I like the man and woman narrating back and forth but if you are expecting a historical mystery romance like some of her past books this is not it! This is set in present day although still dealing with the arcane society and the secret formula but still not at all like her other books.
I enjoyed this book as I do most Jayne Ann Krentz's and the voices of David Colacci and Kathy Garver make it even more enjoyable. This book is fun and the story moves along smoothly. I highly recommend it for a fun easy listen. I hope we see more books using these two narrators.
