Poison Flower, the seventh novel in Thomas Perry's celebrated Jane Whitefield series, opens as Jane spirits James Shelby, a man unjustly convicted of his wife's murder, out of the heavily guarded criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles. But the price of Shelby's freedom is high. Within minutes, men posing as police officers kidnap Jane and, when she tries to escape, shoot her. Jane's captors are employees of the man who really killed Shelby's wife. He believes he won't be safe until Shelby is dead, and his men will do anything to force Jane to reveal Shelby's hiding place. But Jane endures their torment and is willing to die rather than betray Shelby. Jane manages to escape but she is alone, wounded, thousands of miles from home with no money and no identification, hunted by the police as well as her captors. She must rejoin Shelby, reach his sister before the hunters do, and get them both to safety. In this unrelenting, breathtaking cross-country battle, Jane survives by relying on the traditions of her Seneca ancestors. When at last Jane turns to fight, her enemies face a cunning and ferocious warrior who has one weapon that they don't. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “I love the nuances of finding ways to make people disappear, to give them new identities and to wipe away any traces of where they have gone. It is an intriguing concept, made more so by Jane’s Native American background and her strong determination to help those who can’t help themselves.”

    Terry Brooks, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • Anyone who has read Perry knows the anticipatory pleasure that comes just from holding a new book with his name on the cover. Fans of Jane, last seen in Runner, will enjoy this elegantly written tale of pursuit and revenge. Library Journal
  • “At a time when franchise characters are publishing gold [Jane Whitefield] is the sort of protagonist most crime novelists would kill for.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “Fans of Jane Whitefield know what to expect from this fearless Indian guide in Thomas Perry’s quick-witted capers: cunning strategies, clever disguises, ingenious escape tactics, and breathtaking cross-country chases. Perry delivers to order in Poison Flower.”

    " I don't know how he does it but Thomas Perry convinces me every time that he is a Native warrior helping victims disappear. Another great addition to the Jane Whitefield series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 1/25/2014

    " This is probably the ninth Thomas Perry novel I have read and the second one in his Jane Whitefield series that I have finished. Jane is a dedicated rescuer of people from dangerous and impossible situations, and she calls on the knowledge of her Seneca ancestors to help her help others, such as domestic violence victims, victims of sadists, those who have been framed for crimes they did not commit, etc. I marvel at the detailed planning that Mr. Perry does in writing about Ms. Whitefield's decisions, actions, and taking into account dangerous possibilities. This character is a marvel, and she thinks about every step she is going to take in doing what she does. She also puts herself into extremely dangerous situations and instead of becoming fearful, she uses her mind and her intuition to think her way out of them. I really like this character and hope Mr. Perry will continue to write more books in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry Rogers | 1/20/2014

    " Jane Whitefield's eighth outing starts at full speed and never slows down. She is in constant peril throughout, but then so are those who hunt her and the people she's helped to escape. Chase novels are intrinsically suspenseful and Thomas Perry is the master of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 12/30/2013

    " OK, so Jane gets captured, good premise, but, it's Jane Whitefield, so you already know she's going to get away and revenge herself. Not as good as earlier books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 12/20/2013

    " The first half of the book was so brutal and suspenseful that I found myself avoiding reading it. The second half was more of Jane Whitefield doing what she does best--anticipating the bad guys and kicking ass. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kenny | 9/28/2013

    " disappointing... I can't get it out of my head that Perry must have wanted to just end the book... and NOW.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Curry | 7/8/2013

    " Loved the book. I'm so glad Jane Whitefield is back. "

    " Too violent and too preposterous "

    " Very graphic for my taste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melinda | 12/20/2012

    " Hmm I wasn't that satisfied with the end but overall the book was good. The thrill and cunning was still there. "
