Summary:

After a nine-year absence, the fiercely resourceful Native American guide Jane Whitefield is back, in the latest superb thriller by award-winning author Thomas Perry. For more than a decade, Jane pursued her unusual profession: "I'm a guide...I show people how to go from places where somebody is trying to kill them to other places where nobody is." Then she promised her husband she would never work again and settled in to live a happy, quiet life as Jane McKinnon, the wife of a surgeon in Amherst, New York.

But when a bomb goes off in the middle of a hospital fundraiser, Jane finds herself face to face with the cause of the explosion: a young pregnant girl who has been tracked across the country by a team of hired hunters.That night, regardless of what she wants or the vow that she's made to her husband, Jane must come back to transform one more victim into a runner. And her quest for safety sets in motion a mission that will be a rescue operation---or a chance for revenge.

Runner is Thomas Perry at the top of his form.

    Jane helps people escape, and usually she needs to run as well. She is married in this outing and her doctor husband is the one who has to stay at home while she must again protect someone else, a stranger, at the risk of her life. Another complex tangle of a story, just the ticket.
