A little luck. A little skill. A big gamble…

“Jayne is a compelling protagonist with a rap sheet as long as her leg, but with so much doubt and self-conflict to make her shady actions understandable and sympathetic. It’s a heavy but affecting read, made stronger by the novel’s multi-layered lead character.” Self-Publishing Review

Jayne is on the run. With a bag full of stolen money, a new friend she met while stealing his car, and an old adversary out to get her, Jayne heads north looking for a better life.

Along the way she encounters adventure, danger, freedom and something she never expected — love.

But before she can reach her destination she must confront something that’s been following her all along. When she least expects it, her past collides with her future and she must decide whether to keep running or return home to rebuild the life she left.

What Readers Are Saying:

“Fast-paced, fun and fully engaging.” – Suz

“Reading Linehan’s crime thriller is like binge-watching a favorite series on Netflix. You just can’t stop until it’s done.” – William C.

Jayne is a great character. She’s both tough and vulnerable. She’s both smart and foolish. She makes you ache for her while she thinks she’s cunningly playing her hand to win. – Winifred
