Jane Whitefield, the ingenious Native American heroine of the celebrated novel Vanishing Acts, 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.

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.

Love this series! Perry's writing is flawless and the suspense he creates will keep you reading far into the night. Why does someone want an eight-year-old boy dead? Who is Mary Perkins? Perry grabs your attention with the first paragraph and never lets go. If you like this series, you would probably also enjoy the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.

Considering that this book was written quite a while ago, it still holds up as one action packed little story. In my opinion: Thomas Perry's books are fun to read, and reread!

This book kept me on the edge of my seat and holding my breath. During bathroom breaks and food breaks all I thought of was "What's next? What now? Oh no! How'd that happen? What's next?" This is one of the most exciting series I've ever come across. Totally on par with Lee Child's Jack Reacher.

Thought Dance for the Dead was not very believable,especially the ending. I would give Vanishing Act 4.5 stars.
