Raising your mother can be deadly.
Growing up in the city of Stillwater, Oklahoma, thirteen-year-old Liberty Justice has learned how to cook, clean, and care for her heroin-addict mother. But at school, Liberty struggles to fit in, and a fight with her rival gets her suspended. Frustrated, she turns to writing poetry—her only escape.
When a drug dealer shows up at their house with wild accusations, a fight breaks out, and the dealer ends up dead. To save her mother from arrest, Liberty flees the scene with her mom in tow.
Facing the demons of their past, the two are forced to run, staying just one step ahead of the police… and the professional killer hired for revenge.
Liberty Justice is a heart-pounding, gripping suspense novel that is also a moving story of a mother and daughter whose only hope of survival is to rely on the love they have for each other.
"In LIBERTY JUSTICE, Brett McKay blends the violence of drug kings seeking revenge with the hope of a young girl seeking a better life, taking the reader on an action-packed journey that pivots from bloodshed to poetry. And he does it flawlessly." -Barbara Conrey, USA Today Bestselling author of Nowhere Near Goodbye
