Rescue artist Jane Whitefield leads a deadly crime syndicate on a frantic chase with only one winner in this gripping thriller.

Jane Whitefield helps people disappear. Fleeing desperate situations, Jane's clients come to her for new identities, new lives where they won't be found. And when people need Jane's services, they come to the old house in rural New York where she was raised.

It's there Jane finds Sara, a young woman in serious trouble. Sara's boyfriend found out she had a lover, then made Sara watch as he murdered the man. Acquitted despite Sara's testimony, now he's trying to find her and kill her.

Jane can easily outsmart the boyfriend, but he has new friends: a Russian organised crime brotherhood. On learning Sara is with a tall, dark-haired woman who disappears people, the Russians become incredibly interested. They believe Jane's knowledge of past clients could be worth millions.

So begins a bloodthirsty chase through the northeastern US, ending up in Maine's Hundred Mile Wilderness. Only one thing is certain: just one party – Jane or her pursuers – will emerge alive.

'Perry delivers nonstop action, relentless tension, and such three-dimensional secondary characters' Publishers Weekly

'Perry seasons the fast-moving chase narrative with engrossing details about becoming a new person, from constructing a false identity to relearning how to move through daily life in an unrecognizable way. This time, though, there is a stunning extra: with the mobsters closing in, Jane hopes to lose her pursuers by hiking Maine's Hundred-Mile Wilderness, the most arduous stretch of the Appalachian Trail. Cue the ever-versatile Perry to display his outdoor-adventure-writing chops. Not only is the 100-mile chase itself excruciatingly exciting, it's also chockablock with "I-didn't-know-that!" facts about trail survival. Another stunner from a modern master' Booklist, starred review

'Perry is one of the best in the business today, and his latest is a brooding, peripatetic stunner' CrimeReads

'Veteran crimemeister Perry (an Edgar winner for his standalone The Butcher's Boy) adeptly weaves Native American culture, Jane's past cases, and her investigative and survival skills, along with some breathless chase scenes – some on foot – in this fast-moving suspense novel' Mystery Scene Magazine

'There are probably only half a dozen suspense writers alive who can be depended upon to deliver high-voltage shocks; vivid, sympathetic characters; and compelling narratives each time they publish. Thomas Perry is one of them' Stephen King

Mr. Perry's characters come to life with a single sentence... He's one of the greatest living writers of suspense fiction' New York Sun
