Murder in Thrall, by Anne Cleeland
Part comic mystery, part twisted romance, with a light sprinkling of paranormal, this is an odd amalgam of styles and genres. Detective Constable Kathleen Doyle can tell when someone is telling the truth or lying, making her a handy partner in an interrogation. DCI Michael Sinclair, Lord Acton, is obsessed with her, which oddly enough she doesn't seem to mind. Together, while each keeping his or her own secrets, they investigate a series of homocides which just might be linked.
