Short Synopsis
Thomas Perry's ingenius Native American heroine, Jane Whitefield, returns to fight for the lives of two people who have lived under false pretenses for years.

Full Synopsis
When eight-year-old Timothy Decker finds his parents brutally murdered, it's clear the Deckers weren't the intended victims: Timothy's own room—ransacked, all traces of his existence expertly obliterated—is the shocking evidence. Timothy's nanny, Mona, is certain about only one thing. Timmy needs to disappear, fast.

Only Jane Whitefield, a Native American "guide" who specializes in making victims vanish, can lead him to safety. But diverting Jane's attention is Mary Perkins, a desperate woman with S&L fraud in her past. Stalking Mary is a ruthless predator determined to find her—and the fortune she claims she doesn't have. Jane quickly creates a new life for Mary and jumps back on Timmy's case...not knowing that the two are fatefully linked to one calculating killer.

"Bean's performance is engaging. She mixes her pace and tones adeptly, allowing listeners to fully appreciate the richness of Whitefield's character.... This is an entertaining novel that benefits from Bean's narration." ---AudioFile

"There are probably only half a dozen suspense writers alive who can be depended upon to deliver high-voltage shocks; vivid, sympathetic characters; and compelling narratives each time they publish. Thomas Perry is one of them." ---Stephen King

"Compelling.... Nobody writes a chase better than Perry." ---The Washington Post Book World

"A taut, tense, superbly written thriller." ---Booklist

"Perry scores again." ---Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Spellbinding.... Terrific.... Thrillers need good villains, and this one has a formidable SOB who is cold-blooded enough to satisfy anybody's taste." ---Entertainment Weekly

"Thomas Perry is, quite simply, brilliant. And as each book comes out he becomes more so." ---Robert B. Parker
