Dance for the Dead Author:Thomas Perry Jane Whitefield, the ingenious Native American heroine of the celebrated "Vanishing Act", returns in "Dance for the Dead" to pursue her unusual profession: "I's a guide... I show people how to go from places where someone is trying to kill them to other places where nobody is". Jane has helped many fugitives disappear and begin new lives under s... more »afe identities. But this time she must fight for the lives of two people who have lived under false identities for years. The first is an innocent child who is going to die. The second fugitive is neither innocent nor a child: Mary Perkins admits she served time for defrauding S&L's during the 1980's, but she is evasive about her current predicament. Jane is sure of only one thing: Violent men are searching for Mary Perkins, and they will not give up until they find her.
As Jane uses her wits to preserve the lives of her tow charges, she begins to suspect that what she faces is not two unrelated cases but a contest with a single cunning enemy -- a vicious predator who becomes more terrifying and powerful with each kill.
She is either somebody who will help them or somebody who won't. For the rest of her life she'll be somebody who did help them or somebody who didn't.« less
