Publisher's Summary

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.

I have read previous Jane Whitefield books, this was the first listen. She was just as compelling and exciting as I remember. Joyce Bean is spot on with the voices of each charactor. Good story, some parts not completely believable, but exciting anyway

DIY Witness Protection

I've read or listened to several books in this series and have enjoyed them. I like the Whitefield character, and the story lines are entertaining.

That said, this one's a bit too long and drawn out. Jane manages to travel cross country repeatedly, seemingly oblivious to the time required to undertake this travel. She knows lowlifes wherever she goes and travels as easily among this crowd as she does as the wife of a doctor in Buffalo. I keep mumbling to myself, "yeah, right." Money seems not to be a problem - sure, it's explained, but still - and no obstacle is too big or small. Need to get a spot in a retirement community in a day. No prob. Need a furnished apartment overlooking the house of some lowlife she needs to keep an eye on. Sure thing. Need to enlist the help of a friend to undertake dangerous actions? When do we start? You get the idea.

Entertaining, in the long run, but you really have to suspend your disbelief.

Loved it!

I don't know what it was, but I absolutely loved the suspense & espionage-like style. Not too violent, just right! LOVED IT! Kudos to Thomas Perry!

Great book, loved the charactors and the narrator!

Fast moving! This is the first Perry book I have "read" but it most certainly won't be the last!

This story is hindered to a large extent by the narrator. Her idea of changing voices to identify different characters is almost laughable. No, Joyce, a lower pitch does not make for an intriging identity to match the character. I will never listen to her again. Story wise, it's ok, but from the other two reviews, I wonder what they've been reading to rate this so high. I urge caution, dear Audible readers.

Very well written detective/action/thriller

well thought out, interesting characters and engaging storyline; unusual female protagonist with an equally unusual skill set. I greatly enjoy this series of books.

  • Performance
  • Story

Not so interesting

What did you like best about The Face-Changers? What did you like least?

I like the main character, Jane, and the presumptions of the story: she is risking her life to help innocent people survive.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

There were so many details about the nuts and bolts of helping someone disappear: this was tedious, too much. I don't need to know quite so many aspects of her thinking.

What aspect of Joyce Bean’s performance would you have changed?

I would like more animation in her voice.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?
