    Unique setting.

    Hank Bonner is a cop in Sokanan, a small town in the Hudson Valley. He's two weeks from retiring so he can care for his niece, nephew and the family apple farm. His sister and her husband died in a tragic incident that Hank feels he should have been able to prevent. Alex Baker is a wealthy businesswoman negotiating a joint Russian and American venture which will bring prosperity back to Sokanan. When a man is murdered and Hank begins to investigate, the trail leads him to Alex. Alex has her own agenda which involves murder, betrayal, deceit and revenge and which puts everyone close to her in danger. The only thing I didn¿t care for was Alex using her connections with town officials to stop Hank from doing his job. I realize she was trying to keep him from getting hurt. However, by giving him insufficient information she ended up putting everyone is a dangerous position. This was a good book with a fast moving plot and interesting, well-developed characters. I would definitely recommend it.

    Great romantic thriller

    In the small Hudson Valley town of Sokanan, with less than two weeks before retirement, Detective Hank Bonner investigates the murder of convenience store employee Luka Kole. The case looks like a simple robbery turned ugly, but Hanks has problems because the thief failed to take a bank sack containing one thousand dollars. When he notices a newspaper clip involving the Renaissance Oil of Russia deal inside the victim¿s wallet, he visits the consultant listed in the article....................................... Alexandra Baker informs Hank she does not know Luka before tossing him out as she hosts a gala for Renaissance Oil guru Miki Petrov. Alex is upset with her friend¿s murder, but continues with her plan to destroy the man who killed her father thirteen years ago in Russia. Though Hank looks forward to nurturing his depressed niece and nephew, he places the pressure on Alex. He is told to back off by everyone including his brother the mayor. He ignores everyone except Alex who he falls in love with even as he wonders how she is connected to Luka and his killer................................. TELL NO LIES is a fine romantic police procedural that fans will enjoy as an obsessed Alex goes through with her scheme though she knows how dangerous it is to her and her loyal comrades. Hank is a hero refusing to fade into the night and though he worries that he now loves a murderer, he is the one person who changes Alex¿s passion for vengeance into an ardor of love. Though the resolution is too neat, readers will appreciate this solid romantic suspense............................... Harriet Klausner
