I love a good revenge fantasy. Super powers are nice to have. However, at some point reality starts to nag.
Read these and enjoy, but like any guilty pleasure you may become sated.
Once again Jane, is called upon to make someone disappear. This time it is James Shelby, who has been framed by his wife's murder. It is not enough that James has been sentenced to life in prison, his wife's murder wants him dead. Jane stages a daring courthouse rescue. Shelby gets away but Jane is unwittingly captured by those who want to see James dead. Jane has never suffered at the hands of a captor as she does in this novel. There are times when you almost think that she is not going to escape because the circumstances are just that dire. Yet, you can't quite believe that thisis the end for Jane because she ALWAYS comes through. And she does! Despite her injuries, and they are serious, her cunning and resourcefulness are always present. Before all is said and done, Jane assists, James, his sister, and Iris, a woman who has escaped her abusive husband, and insists upon leaving with Jane when they meet in a shelter for abused woman (you have to read the book to appreciate this connection)in disappearing.
Jane brings killing to a new level. In the past, she had killed only in self-defense. This time she kills for self preservation and the body count is the highest we have ever seen. The book grabs your attention from the outset and continues. I have to admit that there were a couple of times when I had to put the book down because the excitement/suspense was just a little too intense. But after a few moments, I picked it up again because I had find out what happened next!
On the home front, Jane and Carey are trying to have a baby and while there is nothing wrong physically with either one of them, they have yet to conceive. It seems that this last trip has taken something out of Carey and one wonders how many more times can Jane put her life on the line for others before Carey walks away; especially if a child is in the mix.
absolutely couldn't put down until I turned the last page!
Loved her Seneca ancestral background that helped in her reasoning and the dream spirit that visited her in times of anxiety to help her see things she might have missed otherwise. Wonderfully written Thomas Perry, you're now on my favorite writer list! Thank You!
