Summary

Review Excerpts

"Joyce Bean's exquisite delivery inhabits the characters.…[Her] evocative reading creates an exciting listening experience." ---AudioFile Earphones Award Winner

"Perry plunges us into one of his patented, nerve-racking, extended chase scenes before the novel's harrowing climax. Makes you cringe, and makes you think." ---Booklist Starred Review

"A tour de force with no room for subtle characterization, complicated moral dilemmas or descriptions of anything that's not instantly material to Jane's job---just an hours-long jolt of pure, adrenaline-fueled plot." ---Kirkus Starred Review

"There are probably only half a dozen suspense writers alive who can be depended upon to deliver high-voltage shocks; vivid, sympathetic characters; and compelling narratives each time they publish. Thomas Perry is one of them." ---Stephen King

"Anyone who has read Perry knows the anticipatory pleasure that comes just from holding a new book with his name on the cover. Fans of Jane, last seen in Runner, will enjoy this elegantly written tale of pursuit and revenge." ---Library Journal

"Despite the emphasis on action, Perry ensures the characters shine." ---Publishers Weekly

Summary

Poison Flower, the seventh novel in Thomas Perry's celebrated Jane Whitefield series, opens as Jane spirits James Shelby, a man unjustly convicted of his wife's murder, out of the heavily guarded criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles. But the price of Shelby's freedom is high. Within minutes, men posing as police officers kidnap Jane and, when she tries to escape, shoot her.

Jane's captors are employees of the man who really killed Shelby's wife. He believes he won't be safe until Shelby is dead, and his men will do anything to force Jane to reveal Shelby's hiding place. But Jane endures their torment and is willing to die rather than betray Shelby. Jane manages to escape but she is alone, wounded, thousands of miles from home with no money and no identification, hunted by the police as well as her captors. She must rejoin Shelby, reach his sister before the hunters do, and get them both to safety.

In this unrelenting, breathtaking cross-country battle, Jane survives by relying on the traditions of her Seneca ancestors. When at last Jane turns to fight, her enemies face a cunning and ferocious warrior who has one weapon that they don't.
