“Another stunner from a modern master.”—Booklist (Starred Review)Rescue artist Jane Whitefield leads a deadly crime syndicate on a wild chase through the NortheastJane Whitefield helps people disappear. Fearing for their lives, fleeing dangerous situations, her clients come to her when they need to vanish completely—to assume a new identity and establish a new life somewhere they won’t be found. And when people are desperate enough to need her services, they come to the old house in rural western New York where Jane was raised to begin their escape.It’s there that, one spring night, Jane finds a young woman fresh from LA with a whole lot of trouble behind her. After she cheated on her boyfriend, he dragged her to the home of the offending man and made her watch as he killed him. She testified against the boyfriend, but a bribed jury acquitted him, and now he’s free and trying to find and kill her.Jane agrees to help, and it soon becomes clear that outsmarting the murderous boyfriend is not beyond Jane’s skills. But the boyfriend has some new friends: members of a Russian organized crime brotherhood. When they learn that Sara is traveling with a tall, dark-haired woman who disappears people, the Russians become increasingly interested in helping the boyfriend find the duo. They’ve heard rumors that such a woman existed—and believe that, if forcibly extracted, the knowledge she has of past clients could be worth millions.  Thus begins a bloodthirsty chase that winds through the cities of the northeast before finally plunging into Maine’s Hundred Mile Wilderness. But in a pursuit where nothing can be trusted, one thing is certain: only one party—Jane or her pursuers—will emerge alive.
It is well written in the sense of a screen play. Lots of descriptive narrative; prolonged suspense; not a lot of dialog. Spoiler alert: I’m a big fan of Ken Bruen and his dialog style. There are others who can deliver that sort of writing, but Perry doesn’t appear to be one of them. Not a bad read just not a style that I enjoyed.

Book 9 in the Jane Whitefield series Jane Whitefield is the person to see if one needs to disappear. Since her marriage, Jane has cut back on the cases she takes on. When a young female is sent to her, she arranges for a new identity, location and informs the female of the skills she will need to survive. The female is being pursued by an ex-boyfriend, who has teamed up with the Russian organized crime brotherhood. The Russians are more interested in capturing Jane who knows the names and locations of a number of people the Russians and others would like to locate and dispose of. Jane ends up running for her life and keeping her enemies away from her husband and home. It’s been a number of years since the last book – does not disappoint. Thanks to NetGalley for a copy.
Fans of Thomas Perry and the exquisite Jane Whitefield will not be disappointed. The bad guys were especially scary, and no reader will be able to set the book down with the last 100 pages unread…don’t even think about going to bed!
Another great Jane Whitefield book that is impossible to put down. Super location descriptions and a terrific plot. As good as any in the series.
Having just finished reading it, I feel obliged to let everyone know what an excellent book it is. I enjoyed it so much, that I want more people to enjoy it.!!
