Jane Whitefield is a fiercely intelligent, wildly resourceful Native American woman. For ten years, she worked in a very unusual profession, helping people escape from their enemies and become runners, for whom she created new identities that would never be uncovered. Until she got married and promised her new husband, a surgeon in Amherst, New York, that she would give up her job and settle into a happy, quiet life. But when a bomb explodes in the middle of a hospital fundraiser, Jane finds herself face to face with the cause of the explosion: a young girl, who's pregnant and has been tracked across the country by a team of hired hunters. That night, regardless of the vow she made to her husband, Jane has to revisit old skills and old contacts. Saving one last victim is going to send Jane off on a mission that could be a rescue operation - or a chance for revenge.

Am reading this book now. Looks like it's as well written as his other books that I have read.

Back to one of Perry's best char.
A very nice book with the little details that make his writing quite believable. Perry has been doing this since the Butcher's Boy and is still very good.

The best ever!
An outstanding story, and it's so great to have a Jane Whitefield adventure again after a long wait. This book lives up to the other titles, and more. Characters, plot, suspense is first-rate and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It's a book you don't want to put down, but can't wait to see what happens next. 5 stars and HIGHLY recommended.
Publishers Weekly, 2008-11-17 Perry's exciting if relatively formulaic sixth Jane Whitefield novel (after 1999's Blood Money) finds Jane, a Native American "guide" who helps people assume new identities, living quietly under an alias in western New York State, married to a local doctor. Shortly after pregnant Christine Monahan shows up at the hospital where Jane's husband works, desperately searching for Jane, a bomb explodes in the hospital. The two women wind up fleeing cross-country with a cadre of thugs hot on their trail. Jane learns that Christine is the girlfriend of an abusive real estate mogul in San Diego obsessed with finding her and their unborn child. By giving Christine and her baby new identities, Jane once again puts herself in mortal danger. Blending the frenetic pacing of a top-notch thriller with Native American mysticism, this entry will more than satisfy longtime fans, though newcomers to the series may be confused by the lack of any kind of substantial backstory.
