Sara Jane Rispoli is a normal sixteen-year-old coping with school and a budding romance–until her parents and brother are kidnapped and she discovers her family is deeply embedded in the Chicago Outfit (aka the mob).
Now on the run from a masked assassin, rogue cops and her turncoat uncle, Sara Jane is chased and attacked at every turn, fighting back with cold fury as she searches for her family. It’s a quest that takes her through concealed doors and forgotten speakeasies–a city hiding in plain sight. Though armed with a .45 and 96K in cash, an old tattered notebook might be her best defense–hidden in its pages the secret to “ultimate power.” It’s why she’s being pursued, why her family was taken, and could be the key to saving all of their lives.
Why I Want This Book
Aside from the cover you mean?
Yea, it’s not my typical AB FLASHING man, but seriously, it’s kinda awesome in it’s own right!
I love Alpha Females. There is nothing I love more in a story than a chick that can hold her own, on and given day. From the sounds of it, this is exactly that kind of book. Her gun of choice? A freaking .45 – yea. Love.Her.
