Publisher Comments:

Jane Whitefield, legendary half-Indian shadow guide who spirits hunted people away from certain death, has never had a client like Dr. Richard Dahlman. A famous plastic surgeon who has dedicated his life to healing, the good doctor hasn't a clue why stalkers are out for his blood. But he knows Jane Whitefield's name--and that she is his only hope. Once again Jane performs her magic, leading Dahlman in a nightmare flight across America, only a heartbeat ahead of pursuers whose leader is a dead ringer for Jane: a raven-haired beauty who has stolen her name, reputation, and techniques--not to save lives, but to destroy them. . . .

What a terrific story! What an exciting book! Well written! Well plotted! Suspenseful! Surprising! The best Thomas Perry novel I've read!

This is the fourth book in the Jane Whitfield series. Jane is now married to Dr. Carey McKinnon and is no longer "guiding" fugitives and helping them disappear. It was an essential part of their agreement with Carey when they wed. Receiving an urgent phone call from her husband brings her to a hospital full of police. Carey asks her to help his patient, Dr. Dahlman, a brilliant surgeon, Carey's mentor and an accused murderer to escape the hospital and disappear until his innocense can be established.

As the story unfolds, she learns that others have pretended to be her, and are destroying the lives of those they are supposed to be helping, draining all their assets in the process. The plot then focuses on Jane as she tries to unravel the fiendish system that those imitating her have built. Her ability to empathize with both the victims and the victimizers helps her negotiate her way through the dangers she encounters. Her Seneca background, intensity and focus serve her well throughout the story.

Eventually the various elements converge at the end bringing a satisfying closure to the separate story lines. Perry saves a couple surprises for the conclusion providing a payoff that also satisfies. I loved the book and highly recommend it.

Excellent book. Actually the first of the series I read for a book club. I have been reading the rest in order, and would recommend doing so.

Actually the first in this series that I read. It was excellent, but I would probably suggest you read them in order.
