Jane has a knack of using the mistakes of others to her advantage.
Poison Flower is consistently as entertaining as 'Runner' and 'The Shadow Woman'. Jane reacts rather than seeks trouble, danger and mayhem.
Jane distills another batch of hemlock root poison & finally gets to use it by outsmarting her quarry getting him to drink it.
The escape from prison was a twist for Jane & her getting outsmarted by bad guys into thinking they were cops was not the typical Jane... is she rusty for taking time off to be a wife?
As always, Thomas Perry provides very good entertainment.
A long time reader and listener - I just can't get enough of Audible! (Especially mysteries and Buddhist texts and history and ...etc!
Probably not. This one was ok, a good story, but not really my cup of tea.
I Love to Read
The performance by the reader was wonderful, and the main character Jane seemed more human than in other books about her.
Yes, the plot was spellbinding.
She made it all interesting and exciting
Yes - about Jane trying to get pregnant.
It's only 8 hours long - all the other Jane Whitefield books were 12/13 hours. Yet this book was the same price as the rest. I feel rather cheated.
I love the character of Jane Whitefield and the arcs her story have taken over the years. Usually I read the books; this was the first time I have listened. Joyce Bean told the story with subtle distinctions and inflections. She made me feel like I was right there - and that is the only problem with this story. Jane was in several situations that made me want to fast forward to get her (and me!) out of there. I didn't, but I think it would have been just as good a story if those situations were a bit more tempered - but maybe not. I do not want to be a spoiler and tell you what happened, but you'll know when you get there!
The story was excellent. I would recommend this book to anyone. It is one of the best I have listened too
Yes, I would listen again, as I have the other Jane Whitefield stories.
Jane is always my favorite character. She lives in the modern world , never forgetting her heritage. She honors and reveres those who have gone before us.
Joyce has a very soothing voice with proper inflection when needed.. I enjoy listening to her narrations.
At times, I felt concern for the characters. Like Jane was taking on too much and she would not be able to come home this time.
I just love the Jane Whitefield stories and so glad I had the opportunity to read another.. Thanks Thomas Perry for bringing by favorite heroine back!
Not as exciting as previous tales
Never grabbed me
Most descriptions of Jane Buying things; plot was ludicrous, esp. when she killedall the men at the cottage in the Adirondacks
The continuation of the business of Jane Whitefield - the central character.
The whole concept of the main character as a modern-day heroine putting her own body (and life) on the line for others.
To me, she is Jane Whitefield.
I discovered Thomas Perry in 2011 via the first Jane Whitefield novel, and within 12 months I had listened to all of his books. He is now my favourite author. My favourite series is the Jane Whitefield stories but I also enjoy the Butcher's Boy series as well as the individual stories.
I really enjoyed listening to the lastest installment. It was darker than the rest. Jane is shown that her time is ending -- everyone is getting very close to her ---
It was worthy addition to Thomas Perry. I understand some of the reviews but Janes job is risky and in this one she is caught and suffers --
read it -- worth a credit
