Not many could save a man's life with lip gloss, car keys and condoms while under gunfire. But Madison McKenna can. This is but one device that the physicist-turned-detective creates in The Last, Best Lie, first in this Chicago-based series, as she sets out to catch her boss's attacker. In antagonistic and steamy partnership with her boss's ex-partner, with the aid of a charming bull-rider and Jake's hard-bitten mistress, and with her own subconscious infusing her dreams with surreal clues, they delve deeply into her boss's shady past. Allies fall and innocents are killed, but Madison perseveres, ultimately stopping the killer through her own unique blend of wit, sensuality and science, hallmarks of this distinctive and exciting new series.
