Freedom Oliver is not her real name. She is not really from the small Oregon town where she currently lives. Why the fake name and why is she so far from home? Well, she killed her husband, a cop, 20 years ago and is now living in witness protection. Working at a biker bar, Freedom keeps her distance from everyone and just tries to survive each day. She misses her kids and is sorry she ever made this deal with the Feds. What Freedom doesn't know is that her worst enemy has just been released from prison. While inside, Matthew Delaney found out where she is, and now he's coming for her with revenge on his mind. Adding to this unknown danger, Freedom learns that her daughter has gone missing and has possibly been kidnapped. The past that Freedom has kept at bay now returns with a vengeance.
VERDICT Miller's debut novel is not for the faint of heart as it's pretty graphic in terms of violence, language, and imagery. For fans of fast-paced reads, reckless characters, and noir, this thriller will be a hit. It may also attract readers who enjoy Chelsea Cain's writing. [Library marketing.]
