A dangerous game ensues, lives are lost, truths are exposed, and one man may shatter the foundation of a powerful organization on the brink of extinction.

Lies and Lullabies is a dark, suspenseful read. Simone by day plays the role of a good girl and works as an executive assistant. At night she dabbles in under-ground fighting to relieve some of her pent up frustrations. Simone is stubborn, independent, smart, loyal and very observant. Catch is the extractor; he will use any means necessary to get the information he needs. He is sexy, controlling, and mysterious but he can at times be very gentle.
This was a great novel; it was easy to get lost in with all of the lies, mystery, violence and sex. I couldn’t wait to see what would unfold next which made it impossible to put down. Ms. Lane is such a great story teller that I felt like I was there and witnessing everything firsthand. If you like a dark, mysterious read you will love Lies and Lullabies.
