Poison Flower by Thomas Perry

James Shelby has been wrongly convicted of murdering his wife, Susan, so his sister hires Jane Whitefield to help him escape the courthouse. While Jim gets away, Jane is nabbed by some men who work for the real killer, who shoot her in the leg. Their aim is to get Jane to tell them where Jim is--and they will torture her to find out. When they discover that Jane has helped lots of people disappear over the years and that some people will pay handsomely to know where Jane hid them, they get even more excited. After hearing this news, Jane knows she has to find a way to escape, even though the odds are stacked against her. In this seventh novel in the Jane Whitefield series, Perry has written a novel filled with non-stop action. It's amazing to me that Perry is not as well-known as other authors who write this type of book: Lee Child, Robert Crais, and Michael Connelly. It will be published in March.
