White Lies by Jayne Ann Krentz

White Lies (The Arcane Society, Book 2)
Title: White Lies
Author: Jayne Ann Krentz
Series: Arcane Society (book #2) 
Previous in series: Second Sight
Next in series: Sizzle & Burn
My Rating: 4 Stars

My Synopsis: Clare Lancaster is the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy member of the Arcane Society. She also just happens to be a human lie detector. Jake Salter is a psychic hunter sent by the Society to discover who is searching for the formula that enhances psychic abilities. The two connect immediately and become embroiled in a complex case of greed, murder and revenge.

My Review: The banter between the main characters and the feisty heroine transform a mediocre plot into a great story. The descriptions of Clare's ability are tantalizing and it would have been great to have more about how her skill developed. One other complaint is that the identity of the villain is predictable - I guessed it the minute the character was introduced.
