Short Synopsis
In her latest adventure, Jane Whitefield, who helps people in trouble disappear from one life and establish a new identity, is hired by a Las Vegas gambling casino executive running from contract killers. But the killers are on the trail of the shadow woman, and soon Jane becomes the principle target of their rage and revenge.

Full Synopsis
Jane Whitefield is a name to be whispered like a prayer—a shadow woman who rescues the helpless and the hunted when their enemies leave them no place to hide. Now, with the bone-deep cunning of her Native American forebears, she arranges a vanishing act for Pete Hatcher, a Las Vegas gambling executive. It should be a piece of cake, but she doesn't yet know about Earl and Linda—professional destroyers who will cash in if Hatcher dies, killers who love to kill...slowly. From Las Vegas to upstate New York to the Rockies, the race between predator and prey slowly narrows until at last they share an intimacy broken only by death.

"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

"A well-paced and complex plot.... Perry leads his [audience] on a galvanizing chase along a twisting, thrilling course." ---Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Bean's competent reading is a pleasure.... [She] is one of the few female narrators who can bring off male characters almost perfectly." ---AudioFile

"The suspense is unrelenting." ---Kirkus Starred Review

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