All I can say is "Wow" because this book is on the edge-of-your-seat intense. I have enjoyed the whole Jane Whitefield series with each book getting better than the last. The concept of guiding people out of their old world and inventing new lives for them while changing their whole thinking pattern is intriguing. I spend some of my time thinking of all that I'd have to change in order to be someone else. Jane's thinking is crisp and follows paths that you often overlook. Then, there are the bad guys that are trying to find them and/or her. Every time I think Thomas Perry has covered all the bases, he comes up with a new concept for the next runner.
