Review: The Face-Changers

The Face-Changers (Jane Whitefield, #4)The Face-Changers by Thomas Perry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There are elements I really like about this series. Jane is a great character. Brutally honest; courageous; and intelligent. While she’s obviously meant to be attractive as well; she rarely gets by on her “feminine wiles”. It’s always by outsmarting her opposition ( and a little luck).

The plot of this novel is quite intricate: there are several moving parts but they are handled well and there are a few switchbacks to keep you on your toes. I do wish there was more at the end that unwound some of the elements. The denouement was a bit too quick. I have questions!!

I liked the FBI a character introduced here. He’s a good antagonist for Jane. Good vs good always creates a great tension. I hope this is not the last of him.

I still don’t like Jane’s husband and their relationship; it remains for me the weakest element of this series.
