Detective Gideon Riehl gets to a murder scene too late and knows someone else is there.  Alice is hiding because she thinks Gideon is the murderer, but also recognizes him as her mate. 

True Colors was an interesting look at more Wyrs or shape-shifters of the Elder Races series.  Each book seems to bring even more interesting Wyrs.  Alice is a chameleon wry while Gideon is a wolf Wyr.  Chameleon Wyrs are rare and there are only a few known, which is why concern is high about the murders taking place.  Betrayal follows threats against Alice and the other chameleons as the story comes to a head. 

Some of the characters from the other books show up in True Colors, which gives a little more insight into the lives of the Wyrs.  The Wyrs have integrated themselves into the human population and part of the interaction is shown when Alice meets Gideon face to face.  Alice is strong, though she doesn’t think she is and Gideon can be extremely intimidating because of his looks and background.  

Some history of some Wyr races is given and I have to say that the author has created a fascinating society with this series.  Three of the books in this series are currently in print, and I am looking forward to reading more about the Wyrs.
