    Not long after completing her assignment, Brodie sees a picture of the man she found accompanied by an article in which the newspaper states he was tortured and killed. Brodie admits to the police her role in the victim's death only to learn he remains alive in a hospital under watch. She asks for absolution and receives it from the victim and soon Brodie and Daniel become friends, joining forces to track down the person who hired her. Soon the plot thickens as they find the torturers who thought Daniel was part of a scheme to kidnap a child.

    This novel is quite different than the Castlemane series, but remains a solid tale. Brodie and Daniel are interesting characters with strong moral cores that takes them outside the law to do what each one feels is right. ECHOES OF LIES is a combination character story packed inside a Bond-like thriller.
