My name is Bonita Torres, and eight months ago I was an unemployed college graduate without a plan. Now I'm an investigator with the Private Unaffiliated Paranormal Investigations team of New York. Pretty awesome, right?

The Cosa Nostradamus, the magical community, isn't quick to give up its secrets, though. Not even to fellow members. Not even when it's in their best interests. So we've been busting our tails, perfecting our forensic skills, working to gain acceptance. The team's tight… but we have our quirks, too. And our Big Dog, Benjamin Venec…well, he's a special case, all right.

But we can't give up. We're needed, especially when a case comes along that threatens to pit human against fatae. But one wrong move could cost us everything we've worked for….

P.U.P.I (Private, Unaffiliated, Paranormal Investigations) is back and taking on a case that makes the unaffiliated portion of their name rather important. The fatae is a group that consists of all pure magical creatures. When a fatae is forced to kill a Talent (magic user) during an attack, P.U.P.I is called in to find what really happened.

The case centers around an attempted rape and this really gets under Bonita's skin. She's so free and open with her sexuality that the idea of using sex as a weapon to hurt someone haunts her. Her emotional reaction to men, including those she works with, after having to magically experience the crime, left me distraught for her.

Bonita and Ben. Obvious attraction and the expected fighting against said attraction for the sake of a working relationship. In Pack of Lies, they are forced to confront their feelings. As their magical connection grows deeper, readers will be excited by the possibilities.

Pack of Lies continues where Hard Magic left off. The P.U.P.I.s have a little more training under their belts, but not much in the way of experience. The straightforward case twists and turns until nothing is what it seems. The P.U.P.I.s unravel a surprising mystery while growing closer as a group. Pack of Lies is not to be missed by urban fantasy fans looking for a great mystery.
