Then we learn she is covered in blood under her coat and has a pocket full of money.
From there, we follow Jane as she searches for help, finally landing at the...more

For "See Jane Run" in particular, I felt such a strong connection with the lead character, Jane. She is a strong, feisty and temperamental woman who will fight...more
I'm not usually one for mysteries or for modern-day settings and this book has both; however I was not disappointed.
This story starts with a woman who finds herself wandering; her dress is covered in blood and she has $10,000 in cash with her. Her struggle to find out who she is turns out to be just the beginning. Disco...more
I absolutely did not see coming the reason why Jane felt such a shock, as to forget who she was, although the main culprit looked too good to be true and highly suspicious. At some points, I wanted to shake Jane to have her call her brother much earlier on, or ditch the pills earlier on.
