Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Jane Whitefield is an incredibly strong and interesting character. I loved all three of Thomas Perry's Whitefield novels: VANISHING ACT, DANCE FOR THE DEAD, and SHADOW WOMAN.I'm the District Sales Manager for the wholesale market and I found Thomas Perry at his Target signing in Southern California to be very gracious and generous to his fans -- taking the time to chat and answer questions while signing copies of his books. Nanci Andersen, Ballantine Sales

From the Inside Flap

--The New York Times
Jane Whitefield is a Native American guide who leads people out of the wilderness--not the tree-filled variety but the kind created by enemies who want you dead. She is in the one-woman business of helping the desperate disappear. Thanks to her membership in the Wolf Clan of the Seneca tribe, she can fool any pursuer, cover any trail, and then provide her clients with new identities, complete with authentic paperwork. Jane knows all the tricks, ancient and modern; in fact, she has invented several of them herself.
So she is only mildly surprised to find an intruder waiting for her when she returns home one day. An ex-cop suspected of embezzling, John Felker wants Jane to do for him what she did for his buddy Harry Kemple: make him vanish. But as Jane opens a door out of the world for Felker, she walks into a trap that will take all her heritage and cunning to escape....
"Thomas Perry keeps pulling fresh ideas and original characters out of thin air. The strong-willed heroine he introduces in Vanishing Act rates as one of his most singular creations."
--The New York Times Book Review
ONE THRILLER THAT MUST BE READ . . . .Perry has created his most complex and compelling protagonist."
--San Francisco Examiner
