Summary: (from goodreads) My name is Bonita Torres, and eight months ago I was an unemployed college graduate without a plan. Now I'm an investigator with the Private Unaffiliated Paranormal Investigations team of New York. Pretty awesome, right?

The Cosa Nostradamus, the magical community, isn't quick to give up its secrets, though. Not even to fellow members. Not even when it's in their best interests. So we've been busting our tails, perfecting our forensic skills, working to gain acceptance. The team's tight… but we have our quirks, too. And our Big Dog, Benjamin Venec…well, he's a special case, all right.

But we can't give up. We're needed, especially when a case comes along that threatens to pit human against fatae. But one wrong move could cost us everything we've worked for….

This is the second book to the Paranormal Scene Investigation series. I have to first say that I did not read the first book and for that reason I felt a little lost and confused, but overall it was a pretty good read.

Bonnie Torres is an investigator for Private Unaffiliated Paranormal Investigations also known as P.U.P.I. Her and her teammates investigate magic crimes and but try to focus on the facts and the evidence rather than getting mixed in all the political stuff. Right off the bat, there is a crime scene and P.U.P.I is sent by the counsel to do an investigation. A woman and her companion who so happens to be a Fatae are attacked and one of that attackers ends up being killed. The case seems likes a pretty open and shut case, but things are starting not to add up and people aren’t telling the truth.

The story is told in different point of views which made it a little challenging to keep up with but I did enjoy the different story lines that were going on at once. I would have liked to have seen some more action and suspense and maybe a little more romance - although, I really liked the chemistry between Bonnie and Ben. Over all, Pack of Lies was a good read, but it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
