For a wildly outrageous new series of crime and deception, trust in USA Today bestselling author Cynthia St. Aubin. During Jane Avery's shady childhood, truth was always a moving target. Since then, she's learned that colorful fictions can clean up a lot of life's messes-and she learned from the best. Her mother, Alexis Avery, is the most imaginatively duplicitous private eye in Denver. When the mother of invention goes missing, Jane knows that only her acquired skills of deceit can solve the mystery. It's what aspiring lawyer Jane doesn't know that's left her blindsided. For starters, Alexis's secret two-year affair with fellow PI Paul Gladstone, or her latest client-a sleazy and deadly gazillionaire architect whose exploits keep the tabloids in business. Sure, Alexis has carved out a niche for danger. But this investigation is leading Jane down a rabbit hole of kidnapping, bribery, blackmail, hired assassins, and murder. Maybe Jane doesn't know her mother at all. Maybe to find her, Jane has to face the truth. She just hopes she can recognize it when she sees it. It could save both their lives.

Professional reviews

"Jane Avery's mother went missing just at the moment when Jane was crossing the stage at her law school graduation. Thus begin Jane's adventures. Amy Landon narrates with enthusiasm and aplomb as Jane searches for her mother. Landon carries listeners from start to finish with a steady pace and subtle yet effective portrayals of the rough, and even deadly, characters involved. This irreverent mystery exhibits a droll sense of humor at even the most tense moments, and Landon is up to the challenge, balancing the lightheartedness and drama to deftly convey the characters' conflicting emotions. Her delivery of the sparkling dialogue is perfectly suited to the audio format. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
