Lindsay Danner is an expert on Chinese bronzes who has an uncanny ability to separate fake from real. She is also a woman alone whose deeply buried memories bring her to screaming wakefulness in the small hours of the night. In the daytime, she has just one requirement of the people and objects in her life--honesty.

Jacob MacArthur Catlin was known under many names in the past, especially Dragon. Intelligent, ruthless, deadly, he became a legend in the shadow world of spies. His life was constructed of lies, deceit, and treachery. When he left that world, he never looked back. And never wanted to.

Then a man comes to Catlin bearing one half of an ancient Chinese coin. The past comes to dangerous life, a danger the sweeps up Lindsay. She is utterly unprepared for a life of lies. Catlin isn't. Only working together can they survive layer after layer of deadly lies and shattering truths--and one of those truths is love.

Years ago, this novel was my introduction to Elizabeth Lowell's contemporary writing and I've been avidly waiting for it to be released in e-book. The story captures the reader's attention from the first page and maintains it to the end, with characters that are well-rounded and a plot that is not only engrossing, but educational. And if you haven't read any other Elizabeth Lowell novels, this is definitely one to use as your introduction.

A tale twisting through time and country, lies and half truths buried in guilt and patriotism, though motherland China and modern America. Lindsey Danner, expert on ancient Chinese bronzes, must sacrifice her honor and reputation to preserve what she holds most dear - and discover the details of her broken past and broken family to find love in the arms of the one man who won't lie to her. This is one of my favorite Lowell books. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking adventure, political intrigue, art history, and a beautiful story steeped in exotic, ancient culture.

The time between reading Elizabeth lowell's books can make you forget just how brilliant a writer she is. Tell Me No Lies is probably one of the best she's ever written. She always puts so much detail an effort in her writing. The dialogue is just great and her insights are enlightening. I always feel smarter after reading her books, particularly this one.

tell me lies is a wery good book. I have read it twice. and recommended it to some of my friends to read. If you give me a half a chance and I would read it again and again. It keeps me on my toes and always in suspence.

Lindsay Danner grew up in China, the daughter of Christian missionaries. Now a highly respected member of the museum world, she specializes in Chinese bronzes. Both her knowledge and her unique background make her the perfect stalking horse in an international game of espionage. A game Lindsay is totally unprepared for, but bound by personal honor to play.For Jacob MacArthur Catlin, an ex-CIA agent who's worn more names than the GB (genuine bastard) Lindsay dubs him, the only regrets he holds regarding getting out of the espionage game are that he didn't do so soon enough. But when an a man with half an ancient bronze coin come calling to talk about old debt, Catlin finds himself acting the reluctant dragon - guarding Lindsay from everything except the ultimate betrayal.Written in the days before lung cancer truly hit home, this book has a plot as twisty as the cigarette smoke spirals every meeting seems to come standard with. Intrigue and double-dealing, and a bit of romance thrown in.

I recommend this book as one of the best I have read by EL, and one of the best by any romance novelist. Lindsay has a life of her own and she doesn't fall into bed with the hero on the first night. They are partners, forced to live together, eat together, and converse. They get to know each other first. Refreshing.Besides that, the Chinese art aspect is educational and interesting and the suspense very believable.

I bought this book on impulse at a store and loved it so much!!! I have re-read it so many times it has started falling apart. Having an electronic copy is so ideal! I love how this author writes.

I'm a big Elizabeth Lowell fan but Tell Me No Lies just wasn't the book for me. Usually I love Lowell's details, but the bronzes over and over and over again... Of course, I'll continue to read her work she's great and timeless. This tale just didn't speak to me.

I absolutely loved this book! Although a bit dated it is worth the read. The detail is outstanding but does not get boring. Catlin and Lindsey are wonderful characters. I enjoyed it so much that when I finished it I turned back to page one and started again.

I read this book years ago and then read it again recently, I just have to say it's timeless. It was better than the first time so I just had to get it for my personal library. Really worth several reads.
