Head of Zeus
The Left-Handed Twin
The Left-Handed Twin by Thomas Perry

Jane Whitefield helps people disappear...

Fearing for their lives, fleeing dangerous situations, Jane's clients come to her when they need to establish new identities, new lives where they won't be found. And when people are desperate enough to need Jane's services, they come to the old house in rural New York state where she was raised.

It's there, one spring night, that Jane finds Sara, a young woman from LA with a whole lot of trouble behind her. Sara's boyfriend found out she had a lover. He then made Sara watch as he brutally killed the man. She testified against her boyfriend, but he was acquitted, and now he's trying to find her... and kill her.

Outsmarting Sara's murderous boyfriend is not beyond Jane's skills. But he has some new friends: members of a Russian organized crime brotherhood. When they learn Sara is traveling with a tall, dark-haired woman who disappears people, the Russians become incredibly interested in helping out. They've heard rumours such a woman existed – and believe her knowledge of past clients could be worth millions.

Thus begins a bloodthirsty chase that winds through the cities of the northeastern US before finally plunging into 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'
'Perry is one of the best in the business today, and his latest is a brooding, peripatetic stunner'
'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'
