Synopsis: Jane Whitefield, the ingenious Native American heroine of the celebrated novel Vanishing Act, returns in Dance for the Dead to pursue her unusual profession. She helps people disappear by creating new identities for them -- identities that prevent them from being discovered by their enemies. But this time she must fight for the lives of two people who have lived under false pretenses for years.
The first is an innocent child: It is only after eight-year-old Timmy Decker's parents are brutally murdered that he learns they were not his parents at all; they were, in fact, his kidnappers. Timmy Decker is declared to be Timmy Phillips -- and he becomes the prize in a violent struggle in which faceless strangers vie for control of the enormous trust fund Timmy never knew he had.
The second fugitive is neither innocent nor a child: Mary Perkins admits she served time for defrauding S&Us during the 1980s, but she is evasive about her current predicament. Jane is sure of only one thing: Violent men are searching for Mary Perkins, and they will not give up until they find her.
As Jane uses her wits to preserve the lives of her two charges, she begins to suspect that what she faces is not two unrelated cases but a contest with a single cunning enemy -- a vicious predator who becomes more terrifying and powerful with each kill.
Edgar -- winning writer Thomas Perry surpasses himself with Dance for the Dead, giving us a superb thriller in which the fiercely intelligent, wildly resourceful Jane Whitefield confronts the most frightening adversary of her life.
From the Publisher:
One of the reasons that I love Thomas Perry's Jane Whitfield books is that they are filled with so much arcane information about the darker side of life. Perry fills you in on how to fabricate a life, steal a car, or set up a bank account using someone else's Social Security Number. This is why I read books. I am way too much of a nice girl to find these things out on my own. Jane Whitfield is a nice girl with an edge. A Native American from Upstate New York, Jane takes people with problems and helps them to disappear. She gets them out of trouble and sets them up in a new life. In DANCE FOR THE DEAD, Jane rescues two "clients," a small boy whose millionaire parents have been killed and a woman accused of embezzlement. Perry's account of how the two cases intertwine and the mechanics of it all is truly fascinating.
