The Liar's Lullaby : San Francisco Forensic Psychiatrist Jo Beckett doesn't dissect the body or the crime scene - she dissects a life and a mind, recreating the victim as a person, piecing together the story of their death to get to the truth. And then she goes after the killer. Tasia McFarland is desperate for the break that will get her back to the top of the charts. As her star begins to rise again, the tabloids uncover the fact that Tasia is the ex-wife of the President of the United STates; which is one reason the world takes notice when she is killed by a bullet to the neck in front of a crowd of 40,000 adoring fans. When video can't prove that the shot came from Tasia's gun, the authorities call on Jo Beckett. But as Jo sifts through the facts, she only finds more questions. Did Tasia kill herself in one last cry for attention? Were those lyrics the ranting of a paranoid woman losing her grip? Or warnings from a woman afraid and in danger?
