Poison Flower

A Jane Whitefield Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Poison Flower, the seventh novel in Thomas Perry’s celebrated Jane Whitefield series, opens as Jane spirits James Shelby, a man unjustly convicted of his wife’s murder, out of the heavily guarded criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles. But the price of Shelby’s freedom is high. Within minutes, men posing as police officers kidnap Jane and, when she tries to escape, shoot her.

Jane’s captors are employees of the man who really killed Shelby’s wife. He believes he won’t be safe until Shelby is dead, and his men will do anything to force Jane to reveal Shelby’s hiding place. But Jane endures their torment, and is willing to die rather than betray Shelby. Jane manages to escape but she is alone, wounded, thousands of miles from home with no money and no identification, hunted by the police as well as her captors. She must rejoin Shelby, reach his sister before the hunters do, and get them both to safety.

In this unrelenting, breathtaking cross-country battle, Jane survives by relying on the traditions of her Seneca ancestors. When at last Jane turns to fight, her enemies face a cunning and ferocious warrior who has one weapon that they don’t.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 19, 2011 – Near the start of Perry’s exciting seventh Jane Whitefield novel (after 2009’s Runner), Jane cleverly frees prisoner James Shelby, unjustly convicted of murdering his wife, from the criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles, though crooks posing as cops who are working for the real killer seize Jane after shooting her in the leg. Jane, who later manages to escape, fights back by drawing on the special warrior skills passed down from her Seneca ancestors. As Jane takes on various thugs and assorted enemies, including a predatory hotel manager, she demonstrates that brains, cunning, and determination conquer brawn and arrogance. Despite the emphasis on action, Perry ensures the characters shine, notably Shelby and an abused wife who hooks up with Jane. While Jane lives a quiet double life as the devoted wife of a surgeon in upstate New York, she no longer need pretend that she wants to give up her job of helping the innocent.

Customer Reviews

Poison Flower

Interesting character, but poorly constructed story and very thin research on drug companies and pharmacy.

Awesome as always. Wish it was a longer book. I so love the Jane books! Keep them coming!

My whole extended family and friends talk about this series and wait excitedly for the next. Long live Jane!!

Good read

Started off slow and difficult to see where it was going, but then it got very interesting. I will read his other books!
