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 has 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 is what aspiring lawyer Jane doesn’t know that has left her blindsided. For starters, Alexis’ latest client—a sleazy and deadly gazillionaire architect whose exploits keep the tabloids in business—and her mother’s two-year affair with fellow PI Paul Gladstone. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Cynthia St. Aubin

Author Bio: Cynthia St. Aubin

Cynthia St. Aubin is the author of The Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt and the Jane Avery mysteries, Private Lies and Lying Low. She wrote her first play at age eight and made her brothers perform it for the admission price of gum wrappers. A steal, considering she provided the wrappers in advance. Though her early work debuted to mixed reviews, she never quite gave up on the writing thing, even while earning a mostly useless master’s degree in art history and taking her turn as a cube monkey in the corporate warren. Because the voices in her head kept talking to her, and they discourage drinking at work, she started writing instead.
