A lesson in violence

Harper, Jordan2018
Books, Manuscripts
11-year-old Polly McClusky is smart beyond her years. But she's a loner, always on the outside, until she is unexpectedly reunited with her father, Nate. Fresh out of jail and driving a stolen car, he takes her from her school into a world of robbery, violence and the constant threat of death. And he does it to save her life. Nate made dangerous enemies in prison - a gang called Aryan Steel has put out a bounty on his head, counting on its members on the outside to finish him off. They've already murdered his ex-wife, Polly's mother. And Polly is their next target. Nate and Polly's lives become a series of narrow misses, of evading bad guys and the police, of sleepless nights in motels. Polly quickly transforms from a shy little girl into a true fighter, while Nate learns what it's like to love fiercely and unconditionally - a love he's never quite felt before.
