Ultimately, Arthur faces a character-defining challenge. Can he find the courage to save a woman who can't return his love, though he risks almost certain death in the attempt?

In Lily White Lie, engravings on a pocketwatch, cryptic messages, Easter lilies, and sidelined spy Bret Kilmore combine to thrust historian Wrenn Grayson into the mysterious world of symbolism. A worried Wrenn connects the messages to her longtime love Gideon and his father. Contact is impossible. Gideon deer hunts deep in the West Virginia wilderness. His father, a prominent banker, vanished after he uncovered a money-laundering scheme.

Sometimes the only way to ensure justice is served is to frame the guilty party for a crime they didn't commit.
