Poison Flower, by Thomas Perry

I really enjoyed this book, but I'm in a bit of a quandary about whether I like the ending or not: on the one hand, Jane does the right thing (of course), and on the other hand she has made a seismic shift in the lengths she will go to to keep her runners safe. The very last line is extremely unsettling.

I wonder if Perry will have the nerve to follow that change through to its logical (to me) conclusion in the next books, or if this is it for Jane Whitefield. If the latter, I'm sad. I liked her. I admired her, in fact, and I'm not sure I do anymore.
