Vanishing Act by Thomas Perry

I just finished Vanishing Act by Thomas Perry and can't imagine how I missed this author for all these years! This book grabbed me by the throat in the first chapter and never let go. I ended up getting about 3 hours of sleep that first night, and not getting any work done the next day.

So, clearly, plenty of action and suspense. But what I really liked was that this is a protagonist who:
  • is First Nations
  • is a woman
  • is strong
  • is unapologetic

So, I've now read the second one in the series, and my wife is on her fourth. If you like Michael Connelly, Spenser, etc, you'll like these.

If that's the case, I'm DEFINITELY going to give Perry a try. Thanks for the tip

Edit: It says this is his 6th novel. Do you or your wife recommend starting at the beginning, or with this one?

It may be his 6th novel, but first in this series which has no dependencies. So I'd start here.

Thanks again. I realised it's the first in the Jane Whitfield series, so I will go with it.

I've just started it, and so far so good.

I'll be back!

That's certainly enough to convince me too.
