Alexsandra Jane Baker has one goal in life. That is to see her father's honor restored. In order to do that she plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with a former KGB agent turned corporate exec. Things are going well and until a local man is killed and what should have been a open and shut case of robbery turned bad becomes a whole lot more when Detective Hank Bonner enters the picture.
Hank is getting to retire from police work in order to take care of his family obligation. He just wants to get on with his life. What he doesn't want in the new murder case that he was just handed. Especially when it comes with an additional challenge in the form of Alexsandera Jane Baker. She is keeping a secret and he knows that it will be a key part in his murder investigation. Will she ever trust him enough to tell him what he needs to know before more bodies turn up dead?
There is a secondary storyline involving Hank and his niece and nephew is also very good and goes a long way to helping flesh out Hank's character. This is very good book and I would have given it a higher rating but at times Ms. Solomon bogged down the read with so much detail. As a result this reader found herself being pulled out of a situation in order to focus on details that may not have been that important. Overall this was a fast paced read that I have no problems recommending.

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.
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 grateful 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.
The thing that made me give this book 4 stars instead of 5 is the general lack of affection and passion between Hank and Alex. You can see it through the dialogue and what passes between them through the book, but it's pretty bland otherwise. No hot blooded romance here, just carefully phrased words, thoughts and actions that show they are attracted and care deeply about each other. In a way, it's a very sweet romance.
This book is good, enjoyable and easy to read but it's not great or a favourite for keeps or anything. Hope this helps some.
