Shelby pressed her lips together and said nothing.

Shelby pressed her lips together and said nothing. Eric was one of those people who could make a term of endearment sound patronizing-his way of reminding her he wasn’t exactly delighted with her growing reputation among the various police forces of the nation. Over and over he’d urged her to use her special gift with discretion. But whenever she’d tried to pin him down as to what he meant by discretion, he’d ended up hinting she should keep her lie-detecting abilities secret altogether.

Who she was and why she was there: supposedly a secret. A secret like all other government secrets-carefully leaked to selected sympathetic investigators from the communications media. The antechamber prickled with a perpetual coming and going of people looking busy, some truly busy.

In a world where even the good men are liars, it will take Shelby Kent to see the truth

In a world where even the good men are liars, it will take Shelby Kent to see the truth. Shelby is the world's only human lie detector, a psychic who sees a buzzing red aura around anyone – including her husband – who tells a lie. Shelby is happy to use her unique powers for the sake of world peace, but she'll find that unthinkable evil lies behind this strange scheme, and clairvoyance is no protection against a madman with a gun.
