Private Lies Publisher's Summary

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 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.

    When aspiring attorney and gifted prevaricator Jane Avery is charged with killing a powerful software engineer, she sticks to the whole truth and nothing but. This time, she really has no idea who he is, or what he was doing in her bed. But no sooner is Jane railroaded than she’s bailed out by shady billionaire architect Archard Valentine. He and Jane have something in common: they’re both looking for Jane’s mother, Alex. For Valentine, it’s business. For Jane, it’s personal. And with one last lead to follow, she’s on the run.
