Description
The Native American guide is hunted for her knowledge in this "tour de force" thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of Vanishing Act (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Jane Whitefield of the Seneca Nation has spent years helping desperate people disappear. But now she is about to become the hunted one. When James Shelby is unjustly convicted of his wife's murder, Jane spirits him out of the heavily guarded criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles. Then, within minutes, Jane is kidnapped. The person who killed Shelby's wife now wants him dead, and Jane's captors will put her through excruciating torment to discover his whereabouts. Though Jane manages to escape, she is wounded and weak, thousands of miles from home without money or identification . . . and hunted by both police and criminals. Attempting to rejoin Shelby and get to safety, Jane is caught in a waking nightmare, as many of the pursuers she has eluded for years gather to bid on her capture in a multimillion-dollar auction. The winning bidder buys the chance to access Jane's memory, and the locations of everyone she has helped disappear. "Fans of Jane Whitefield know what to expect from this fearless Indian guide in Thomas Perry's quick-witted capers: cunning strategies, clever disguises, ingenious escape tactics and breathtaking cross-country chases. Perry delivers to order in Poison Flower." —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

        Near the start of Perry’s exciting seventh Jane Whitefield novel (after 2009’s Runner), Jane cleverly frees prisoner James Shelby, unjustly convicted of murdering his wife, from the criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles, though crooks posing as cops who are working for the real killer seize Jane after shooting her in the leg. Jane, who later manages to escape, fights back by drawing on the special warrior skills passed down from her Seneca ancestors. As Jane takes on various thugs and assorted enemies, including a predatory hotel manager, she demonstrates that brains, cunning, and determination conquer brawn and arrogance. Despite the emphasis on action, Perry ensures the characters shine, notably Shelby and an abused wife who hooks up with Jane. While Jane lives a quiet double life as the devoted wife of a surgeon in upstate New York, she no longer need pretend that she wants to give up her job of helping the innocent. Agent: Robert Lescher, Lescher & Lescher.

        Despite having promised her husband that she would retire, Jane Whitefield, a Seneca woman who helps abused women and other victims disappear, is drawn back to her calling by the case of James Shelby, an innocent man imprisoned for murdering his runaway wife. Jane engineers an ingenious escape and is soon on the run with Shelby. They are joined by a woman whose ex-husband is tracking her with deadly intent. On their trail are three goons, employed by a wealthy man who kills his sexual companions for kicks. The men capture and torture Jane, after which they intend to auction her off to the men she has harmed by her past heroics. But Jane, ever resourceful and always in touch with her tribe's spiritual roots, has other plans in mind. VERDICT Anyone who has read Perry knows the anticipatory pleasure that comes just from holding a new book with his name on the cover. Fans of Jane, last seen in Runner (2009), will enjoy this elegantly written tale of pursuit and revenge.--Ron Terpening, Univ. of Arizona, Tucson
