Publisher's Summary

After a nine-year absence, the fiercely resourceful Native American guide Jane Whitefield is back, in the latest superb thriller by award-winning author Thomas Perry. For more than a decade, Jane pursued her unusual profession: "I'm a guide...I show people how to go from places where somebody is trying to kill them to other places where nobody is." Then she promised her husband she would never work again and settled in to live a happy, quiet life as Jane McKinnon, the wife of a surgeon in Amherst, New York.

But when a bomb goes off in the middle of a hospital fundraiser, Jane finds herself face to face with the cause of the explosion: a young pregnant girl who has been tracked across the country by a team of hired hunters.That night, regardless of what she wants or the vow that she's made to her husband, Jane must come back to transform one more victim into a runner. And her quest for safety sets in motion a mission that will be a rescue operation - or a chance for revenge.

    "50 Ways to Leave Yr Lover"

    Runner Jane Whitefield might have the dullest fictional marriage in America. All she and hubby do is tell each other how much they love, love and love each other. Their relationship bogs now every book with them in it, but it sinks this one. Please, Thomas Perry, give the poor woman a divorce or read a little John Sanford. He married off Lucas Davenport with no ills effects.

    "Ho Hum"

    Not the worst book I've listened to, but certainly NOT a thriller. Painstaking attention to detail which I suppose is to take us away from the fact that nothing is happening.
