Product description


"From its bravura prologue to its immensely satisfying ending, this first novel comes out with guns blazing and shoots the chambers dry. It's both a dark, original take on the chase novel and a strangely touching portrait of a father-daughter relationship framed in barbed wire."--Booklist (starred review)

"Polly will charm readers instantly. She's fresh and winning...A gritty, dark thriller packed with action.--Dallas Morning News

"The characters' loyalty, love, and struggle for redemption grip the reader and don't let go."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Visceral... Expert pacing and well-developed characters lift this above the thriller pack."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Fascinating...tightly written...readers will find this book hard -- hard to put down."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"She Rides Shotgun is a True Grit sort of saga, but on hot-wired horsepower instead of horseback. With Harper's storytelling chops, it's a rolling hell-bent adventure with all the snappy dialogue and action of the best noir fiction."--Shelf Awareness

"An impeccable crime novel with a giant heart, massive doses of hatred, vengeance, pain, and violence, and some of the sharpest, tightest prose you'll encounter in 2017."--LitReactor

"A electrifying thriller, a shattering family tragedy, and a pitch-black coming of age story...The language is searing, the action relentless, the beauty wrenched from ugliness truly astounding--this book will grab you by the throat and hang on tight until you've greedily swallowed every last word."--Robin Wasserman, author of Girls on Fire

"An exquisitely violent father-daughter story, burns bright and fast. I kept waiting for the inevitable slow-down, but it never came. An extremely impressive debut."--Peter Swanson, author of The Kind Worth Killing

"Confident, brutal, but always human, Jordan Harper's She Rides Shotgun is a violent parable of family and sacrifice. The best debut novel that I've read this year."---Johnny Shaw, Anthony Award-winning author of Big Maria

From the Inside Flap

Polly McClusky is eleven years old--too old for the teddy bear she carries with her everywhere--when she is unexpectedly reunited with her father, Nate, fresh out of jail. 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. Marked for death, she will have to fight and steal to stay alive, learning from the most frightening man she knows--her father.

Nate's and Polly's lives soon become a series of narrow misses, of evading the bad guys and the police. 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?

---Johnny Shaw, Anthony Award-winning author of Big Maria
