After a nine-year absence, the fiercely resourceful Native American guide Jane Whitefield is back, in the latest superb thriller by award-winning author Thomas Perry.

For more than a decade, Jane pursued her unusual profession: “I’m a guide … I show people how to go from places where somebody is trying to kill them to other places where nobody is.” Then she promised her husband she would never work again, and settled in to live a happy, quiet life as Jane McKinnon, the wife of a surgeon in Amherst, New York. But when a bomb goes off in the middle of a hospital fundraiser, Jane finds herself face to face with the cause of the explosion: a young pregnant girl who has been tracked across the country by a team of hired hunters. That night, regardless of what she wants or the vow she’s made to her husband, Jane must come back to transform one more victim into a runner. And her quest for safety sets in motion a mission that will be a rescue operation—or a chance for revenge.

    " Not as good as some of the earlier books in the series, which I really liked. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Michael | 2/6/2014

    " Pretty clever and entertaining suspense tale featuring Jane Whitefield, a Seneca Indian in Upstate New York who helps people disappear from dangerous situations, assume new identities, and acquire survival skills. Here she is pulled out of retirement from this service by a runaway 20-year old who is six weeks pregnant. She is escaping from a complex domestic violence situation in which her future baby has special value to her boy has special value to her real estate boyfriend and boss in San Diego. Jane tries to avoid violence as much as possible, but the dangers posed by the multiple people looking for Christine make that hard to avoid this time around. This 6 of 7th in the series was worth the ride, although the formula begins to show through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Martha | 2/3/2014

    " Love how Jane saves the day again, but it didn't quite have the heart and soul of Perry's previous Whitefield novels. Missed the witty talk between Jane and her husband, and (besides throwing money at the problem to buy fake ID, etc.) she didn't have any brillant solutions to hide the person. "
