Overview

After the life-altering ending in the third Jane Perry thriller, Revelations, Jane Perry takes time off from the job to find the missing part of herself she never knew existed. But her journey is quickly hijacked when a wanted criminal, Harlan Kipple, steals her car. Kipple—accused of the heinous murder of a prostitute in a seedy motel—is on the run and desperate to stay that way. Jane’s personal plans take a backseat as she tracks down her stolen ride and discovers through an unusual source that Kipple may be innocent and is being framed by a nefarious group. When she trails Kipple and confronts him, every belief she ever had about this world and the next is put to the test.

Kipple, who by his own admission is not the “brightest bulb in the box,” received a heart transplant seventeen months ago. His life changed from the moment he woke up in the recovery room. In fact, he’s not so sure where he ends and his heart takes over. As strange as that sounds to her, Jane cannot deny what she witnesses after spending just two days with Kipple. It becomes clear that nothing is what it appears as Jane is drawn into a deep rabbit hole with dark webs and darker crevices that force her to operate on the other side of the law. With the police hot on Kipple’s tail and a devious faction intent on finding him first, Jane is caught in the middle and realizes that solving this crime could have fatal consequences.

With themes as diverse as immortality, regeneration, resurrection, transformation and death, author Laurel Dewey tackles this latest Jane Perry novel with originality and plenty of suspense. “Finding yourself,” takes on a whole new meaning in KNOWING.

    Could not put it down!

    I loved this last book in the series with Jane Perry. It captivated me from the beginning and I anxiously followed her and her 'travel buddy' as Gabe led them. Hated to come to the last page; however, I wasn't disappointed!
    Looking forward to the next chapter!
    (Many of the comments about 'things beyond our control and people being manuevered in life' really hit home!)

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!
    I've been a fan of Laurel Dewey's work since her first novel, Protector. And through each book, I've gotten to know, admire and truly love her heroine, Jane Perry. 
    In KNOWING, we find Jane starting off to find "that missing piece of herself." (I don't want to give it away if you haven't read REVELATIONS, the book that comes before this.) But her journey is quickly derailed when her car is stolen. THAT leads to meeting an alleged "killer" named Harlan Kipple who had a heart transplant about 2 years ago. But the twist is really cool. Harlan feels that his donor is speaking through him and is desperate to tell a story that could solve a horrible crime.
    I found the book very original, totally engrossing and really thought provoking. It moved at a fast clip and I found myself getting so wrapped up in the character's problems and fears that I forgot it was "just a story." 
    If you're looking for a smart, clever and thrilling story, this is it. The only suggestion I have is that you should really read the entire series from the beginning to understand Jane Perry and to see how she grows and changes in each book.

    Boring

    I was very disappointed with this book. No where near as good as "The Protector!" Too much psycological theory and not enough of a story line.

    Hott Synopsis
    People have amazing experiences after having a heart transplant. Some say that they feel connected to the donor while others swear that they have memories and dreams from the donor’s life.
    Harlan’s life after his transplant hasn’t been that simple. He lived a peaceful naive existence for many years but since this transplant he’s been having black-outs, he’s been eating strange foods, he’s been accused of murder and someone’s trying to kill him. It’s almost like there is this other person inside of him and sometimes that person just takes over. Well, it’s that or Harlan’s schizophrenic.
    Jane started out on a trip to find someone she’s sure she lost when strange things start to happen to her seemingly directing her in a different direction. She’s not sure why but she just has some gut instinct that Harlan is more sane than he appears and not as guilty as the facts suggest. But can she prove it before both of them are wiped off the face of the earth?

    Hott Review
    What I liked: The hardest part of reading this book for me was slowing down enough to read every word. The plot was so exciting I just kept rushing and then I’d have to go back and reread the page because Ms. Dewey packs a lot you don’t want to miss into these books.
    This book is not only an interesting mystery but it also has a ton of supernatural good vs evil play that it’s a terrific book for many other genres.
    What I didn’t like: The first four chapters were really difficult to enjoy. There was so much that just seemed random and eerie that I had trouble continuing but, as soon as I got to chapter five I didn’t want to put the book down. It was so worth it.

    Laurel Dewey in her new book, ¿Knowing¿ Book Four in the Jane Pe

    Laurel Dewey in her new book, “Knowing” Book Four in the Jane Perry series published by The Story plant gives us a new adventure of Jane Perry.

    From the back cover: After the life-altering ending in the third Jane Perry thriller, Revelations, Jane Perry takes time off from the job to find the missing part of herself she never knew existed. But her journey is quickly hijacked when a wanted criminal, Harlan Kipple, steals her car. Kipple—accused of the heinous murder of a prostitute in a seedy motel—is on the run and desperate to stay that way. Jane’s personal plans take a backseat as she tracks down her stolen ride and discovers through an unusual source that Kipple may be innocent and is being framed by a nefarious group. When she trails Kipple and confronts him, every belief she ever had about this world and the next is put to the test.

    Kipple, who by his own admission is not the “brightest bulb in the box,” received a heart transplant seventeen months ago. His life changed from the moment he woke up in the recovery room. In fact, he’s not so sure where he ends and his heart takes over. As strange as that sounds to her, Jane cannot deny what she witnesses after spending just two days with Kipple. It becomes clear that nothing is what it appears as Jane is drawn into a deep rabbit hole with dark webs and darker crevices that force her to operate on the other side of the law. With the police hot on Kipple’s tail and a devious faction intent on finding him first, Jane is caught in the middle and realizes that solving this crime could have fatal consequences.

    With themes as diverse as immortality, regeneration, resurrection, transformation and death, author Laurel Dewey tackles this latest Jane Perry novel with originality and plenty of suspense. “Finding yourself,” takes on a whole new meaning in KNOWING.

    Sergeant Detective Jane Perry is back for another adventure and what an adventure this is. Her car is stolen by a fugitive wanted for murder. When she gets the car back she also acquires the fugitive whom she comes to believe is innocent. In the meantime she encounters a conspiracy that want both Harlan and her dead. With all this going on there is the theme of the heart transplant. Is there more to the heart than just the major organ in the body? “Knowing” explores the issues of the heart and has a spiritual tone to it. The relationship between Harlan and Jane is exceptional and you come to care for both of them. Add in the fact that this is a thriller with both their lives in deadly danger and what you have is pure excitement. Ms. Dewey knows how to tell a good story though I could have done without the “R” rated language, though that is just me. “Knowing” is an exciting adventure from start to finish.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Partners In Crime. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

    I'm about to tell you something in all honesty ... every time Ja

    I'm about to tell you something in all honesty ... every time Jane Perry comes back in a new novel her story gets better and better. You'd think that eventually a character's story would fade and fizzle away. I have a feeling that Laurel Dewey is just getting started with her Jane Perry novels.

    Here's what we know so far about Jane: she's a homicide detective, she's found out she has a half-sister in New Mexico, she's (finally) taking a vacation from her job, and she's recently found a man who loves her for who she is. Doesn't seem like a lot to learn from four novels does it? Well, these weren't written by your ordinary author.

    Each novel progresses, not only, Jane's story, but also Laurel's skill as an author. She will have you thinking outside of the proverbial box and make you want to stay there. I cannot get enough of her Jane Perry series. Laurel Dewey will forever have a permanent place on my bookshelves.

    By the way, you can read each of the Jane Perry novels as stand-alone novels, but I would really recommend that you start at the beginning and work your way through. I promise that the journey of getting to know Jane from the start is well worth the read.

    P.S. - I know this is a short review, but I really cannot say enough good things about the author or her work. So, instead of continuing on and on or regurgitating the summary, I thought I'd just tell you how I feel and leave it at that. =)

    This was a great read, see for yourself.

    Laurel Dewey is now my favorite author, his Jane Perry character is someone I could be friends with. She is down to earth, and smart, and funny. In this book, Harlan sounds like a great guy too, and together following the clues makes it really hard to put down.

    Okay, just what I needed; to be hooked into another series. This is a good one. The mystery is good, but the thing I enjoy the most in this, and the preceeding book, is the development of the flawed main character. I truly care for her and her troubles. I will be moving on to the third book in this series very soon.

    What a "ride" for the reader as well as Jane Perry. A very creative and intricate plot for another excellent book by Laurel Dewey. The whole series is a great read and this book was a page turner from the start.

    Knowing is book Four in the Jane Perry series.  I have not read

    Knowing is book Four in the Jane Perry series.  I have not read any others in the series.  Sometimes that presents a hardship for the reader while other times you can pick a book up midseries and quickly be in the swing of things.  This was one where I don't think I suffered in any way by not have read the previous books.  The story has sort of a Richard Kimble in &quot;The Fugitive&quot; feel to it.  However, there are several varying twists and turns.  Such as - the fugitive (accused of murder) had a heart transplant almost two decades ago.  He doesn't believe he committed murder but feels very strangely since his heart transplant.  Is he who he is or is he what the heart is?  This is an excellent story with suspense and mystery.  It was incredibly action packed but there were some portions of the book that moved much more slowly than others.  Did it detract from the story - no, but I didn't find it incredibly helpful either.  I give this book 4 stars!








    I received a copy of Knowing in exchange for an honest review.
