The CollectioneBook - 2013
"Jane Smith is as ordinary as her name...except for her innate and special "talent" that allows her to separate fact from fiction. Known by her friends as the "human lie detector", Jane can call you on every fib - when she's courageous enough to stir up a bit of controversy. Unfortunately, her ability usually gets her in more trouble than it's worth. Lucien is a high-class art forger and thief with 700 years of experience under his immortal belt. Five brief years in the making, he has finished his latest masterpiece - an exact replica of a multi-million dollar bronze sculpture. This latest piece now resides in Atlanta's High Museum of Art having been switched for the genuine at his restoration business. As luck would have it, the minute Jane enters the exhibit, she recognizes the fake. Overcoming her usual shyness, Jane can't help but comment on the impressive imitation, shocking Lucien with her knowledge and leading him to challenge her accusations. While distracted by their argument, they are kidnapped by one of Lucien's unhappy customers - someone who suspects the goods he received are less than genuine. When Jane is mistaken for Lucien's girlfriend, they are both ensnared in a ruthless plot of high stakes acquisition and murder by the maniacal former client, a black market art buyer. How many people will die before Lucien and his ancient family of co-conspirators can free themselves from the modern world's most vengeful villain: an unsatisfied customer."-- Provided by publisher.
