Runner

ebook
The New York Times bestselling author "blend[s] the frenetic pacing of a top-notch thriller with Native American mysticism" in Jane Whitefield's return (Publishers Weekly).

"The world's foremost specialist in hiding fugitives from their pursuers is back with a vengeance" in this "high-potency thriller" (Kirkus Reviews).

For more than a decade, Jane Whitefield practiced 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 guns-for-hire. That night, regardless of what she wants or the vow she's made to her husband, Jane must come back to transform one more victim into a runner. Her quest for safety sets in motion a mission that may be as much of a rescue operation as it is a chance for revenge.

"Readers who have been clamoring for the return of Thomas Perry's most popular heroine can stop waiting. After a nine-year absence, Jane Whitefield is back."—The Associated Press
"A first-class thriller and the welcome return of an outstanding series."—Booklist (starred review)
