She almost got caught this time........great suspense. Fascinating glimpse into the twisted thinking of paid killers and cognitive thinking of good guys on the same subject. This can't be the last Jane Whitefield mystery PLEASE.

Griping, cerebral and totally engrossing--just like the other Jane Whitefield novels.

This is the best, in my opinion, so far in the Jane Whitefield series about a Native American guide who helps people obtain new identities and a new life. In this one, Jane helped a Las Vegas gambling executive, Pete Hatcher, disappear when he had discovered that his bosses were suspicious that he might reveal to the FBI some of the illegal activity known to him. But after leaving Hatcher in Denver and returning to her home near Buffalo, New York, Jane gets a hurried call from him saying that some killers were on to him and that he was leaving for Montana. Jane had recently married and vowed to be through with her life of guiding others to a new identity; but when she received the call from Hatcher, she felt obligated to help him. However, she didn't realize that a pair of very professional hired killers were after Hatcher and that they would also jeopardize her husband and their life together. This was a real thriller as Jane and Hatcher are tracked through the Montana wilderness. High recommendation!

Jane Whitefield is a name to be whispered like a prayer. A shadow woman who rescues the helpless and the hunted when their enemies leave them no place to hide. Now with the bone-deep cunning of her Native American forebears, she arranges a vanishing act for Pete Hatcher, a Las Vegas gambling executive. It should be a piece of cake, but she doesn't yet know about Earl an more » d Linda -- professional destroyers who will cash in if Hatcher dies, killers who love to kill... slowly. From Vegas to upstate New York to the Rockies, the race between predator and prey slowly narrows until at last they share an intimacy broken only by death.

This is book three of the series and it is nerve wrenching suspense until the end scene. If you missed it first time around you need to read it. If you haven't clued into the series by now - start here and go for it.

So I went back and forth on whether to give 3 or 4 stars... Even though I was happy about how the story ended I still gave it 3 because of the horrible marriage Jane ties herself to. Basically most of the end of the book kept my attention, flowed well and was pretty fast paced. There was just something about most of the beginning that kept making me put the book down and wonder if I was even interested in finishing it.

My problem has to do with the relationship between Jane and Carey, supposedly she loves him so much she marries him and is willing to give up helping people disappear, but I never really saw a lot to love about him. I know way more about Pete, the guy she leads to safety, than has ever been revealed about the man she chooses to change her life for. And maybe that's what my problem with the book is - that she's "giving up" who she seems to be - she's planning on being the "perfect wife" and it just seems like Carey would rather that be who he's married to than who she actually is. It just doesn't seem like he's worthy of the awesome woman she actually is, he prefers the glossy surface he's always known. Is it wrong to hope the 4th book starts off with him being killed and Jane wreaking vengeance for him? Either give me that or have the guy become a man worth loving!
