Veil of Lies is one of the most enjoyable mystery stories I've read in a long time! The character development was excellent, the main character, Crispin Guest, was sympathetic and sexy, the damsel in distress was beautiful and tough, and the story was full of action. This book was a layer cake of mysteries, sure to appeal to fans of paranormal mysteries, murder mysteries, spy thrillers, and noir. This was just a good, strong, entertaining story, driven by really good characters. Lots of fun!
