After two decades protecting innocent victims on the run, and a year after getting shot on a job that took a dangerous turn for the worse, Jane McKinnon, nee Whitefield, has settled into the quiet life of a suburban housewife in Amherst, New York--or so she thinks. One morning as she comes back from a long run, Jane is met by an unusual sight: all eight clan mothers, the female leaders of the Seneca clans, parked in her driveway in two black cars. A childhood friend of Jane's from the reservation, Jimmy, is wanted by the police for the murder of a local white man. But instead of turning himself in, he's fled, and no one knows where he is hiding out. At the clan mothers' request, Jane retraces a walking trip she and Jimmy took together when they were fourteen in hopes that he has gone the same way again. But it soon becomes clear that the police aren't the only ones after him.  As the chase intensifies, the number of people caught up in this twisted plot multiplies, and Jane is the only one who can protect those endangered by it. A String of Beads in an addictive, fast-paced thriller about how abandoning the past can sometimes be the hardest thing to do, even when your life--and the life of those you love--depends on it.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Jane drove south to the mechanic’s shop that was owned by the Snows. She pulled close to the garage
doorway, got out, and walked to the front of her car.

Janie?”

Jane turned her head and saw a dark-skinned man about her age wearing blue work pants, steel-toed boots, and a gray work shirt with an embroidered patch above the pocket that said RAY. Jane stepped up and hugged him. It’s great to see you, Ray. I was afraid you would be on vacation or something.”

No, the guys who work for me get vacations. I’m always here, like the doorknob. Got a car problem?”

I wondered if you could do the scheduled maintenance on my car you know, oil, filter, lube, check and replace belts and hoses and then keep it here safe for at least a week or so.”

I’d be glad to. You staying around here?”

I thought I’d go on a hike, like we used to when we were kids.”

Ray Snow’s brows knitted. You trying to find Jimmy?”

Jane looked around to see if anyone else was in earshot. She smiled and said, Not me. That’s the police’s job. I wouldn’t want to get involved.”

Well, that’s good. A person would have to be stupid to do that.” He whispered, Give him my regards.”
