I chose to read this book because the action moves between two places that I have lived, Seattle and Key West. The action scenes keep you reading and it is great escapism!
For a first novel this wasn't bad. I had a hard time getting through some parts, but had to get to the end to find how the story ended! If you are looking for a book that won't take long to read, this is it. I think I finished it in two days or less.
This book is about the daughter of a Florida drug runner, Alison Kerry lives from day to day, in seedy motels, surviving on cigarettes, Wild Turkey, and the adrenaline rush of danger. Allie is a runner and her latest job should go down easy: easy pickup, easy payoff--easy money. but in a bar outside Seattle, everything goes horribly wrong. Allie finds her contact with a bullet in his brain--and a government-issued Colt in his pocket. Suddenly Allie has a killer on her trail, and the computer disk he killed for burning a hole in her pocket. For Allie, it's a cross-country journey throught the Cascade Mountains to the winding back roads of the Montana and into the darkest corners of a country's secret history. Because somewhere between the killing fields of Vietnam and the wide-open heartlands of America, a horrifying truth is buried. A truth about a people, a war, and one woman's past. A truth Allie may not survive...This is Jenny Siler's first novel. A very exciting thriller.
