Summary

A heart-stopping debut thriller about a woman named Freedom, who will stop at nothing to save the daughter she knew for only two minutes and 17 seconds.

Call me what you will: a murderer, a cop killer, a fugitive, a drunk....

Freedom Oliver has spent the last 18 years living a quietly desperate life under witness protection in a backwater of Oregon after being exonerated of her husband's murder. But now Freedom's daughter, Rebekah, is missing - the same one who had been wrenched from her arms just moments after birth.

Freedom slips her handlers and embarks on an epic journey across the US to Kentucky, determined to find her child. No longer under the protection of the US marshals, Freedom is tracked by her late husband's psychotic brothers, who will stop at nothing in their quest for vengeance. But they are not the only threat she faces as she draws nearer to the horrifying truth behind Rebekah's disappearance....
