A library with whispering books, a school for magical kids trying to determine their roles in vague prophecies, magical teachers - some of whom may be murderers or just narcissists. Sound a bit familiar? It is, but add to that mix a private investigator who is the bitter non-magical twin of one of the professors, a gruesome murder, a strong mix of heavy drinking, fluid sexuality, and the feel of a noir novel and you have Magic for Liars. Fun with a serious investigation of the loneliness permeating modern society! 

— Linda


Ivy Gamble was born without magic and never wanted it. Ivy Gamble is perfectly happy with her life - or at least, she's perfectly fine. She doesn't in any way wish she was like Tabitha, her estranged, gifted twin sister. Ivy Gamble is a liar. When a gruesome murder is discovered at The Osthorne Academy of Young Mages, where her estranged twin sister teaches Theoretical Magic, reluctant detective Ivy Gamble is pulled into the world of untold power and dangerous secrets. She will have to find a murderer and reclaim her sister--without losing herself"--
