"Compelling . . . Nobody writes a chase better than [Thomas] Perry."-- The Washington Post Book World

Jane Whitefield is the patron saint of the pursued, a Native American "guide" who specializes in making victims vanish. Calling on the ancient wisdom of the Seneca tribe and her own razor-sharp cunning, she conjures up new identities for people with nowhere left to run. She's as quick and quiet as freshly fallen show, and she covers a trail just as completely. But when a calculating killer stalks an innocent eight-year-old boy, Jane faces dangerous obstacles that will put her powers--and her life--to a terrifying test. . . .

Praise for Dance for the Dead

"A terse thriller . . . Perry starts the story with a bang." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"One of the most engaging heroines in contemporary suspense." -- The Flint Journal

Well plotted with exciting twists. The author likes to go off on tangents but these are easy to skip.

Very well paced, always interesting! They do become a bit of a formula book after awhile, but I think that is just due to the nature of the scenario.
