Thriller | Suspense
A propulsive, gritty novel about a girl marked for
death who must fight and steal to stay alive, learning from
the most frightening man she knows—her
Eleven-year-old Polly McClusky is
shy, too old for the teddy bear she carries with her
everywhere, when she is unexpectedly reunited with her
father, Nate, fresh out of jail and driving a stolen car. He
takes her from the front of 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.
Polly’s lives soon become a series of narrow misses, of
evading the bad guys and the police, of sleepless nights in
motels. Out on the lam, Polly is forced to grow up early:
with barely any time to mourn her mother, she must learn how
to take a punch and pull off a drug-house heist. She finds
herself transforming from a shy little girl into a true
fighter. Nate, in turn, learns what it’s like to love
fiercely and unconditionally—a love he’s never quite felt
before. But can their powerful bond transcend the dangerous
existence he’s carved out for them? Will they ever be able
to live an honest life, free of fear?
Shotgun is a gripping and emotionally wrenching novel
that upends even our most long-held expectations about
heroes, villains, and victims. Nate takes Polly to save her
life, but in the end it may very well be Polly who saves him.
