"Freedom Oliver has plenty of secrets. She lives in a small Oregon town and keeps mostly to herself. Her few friends and neighbors know she works at the local biker bar; they know she gets arrested for public drunkenness almost every night; they know she's brash, funny, and fearless. What they don't know is that Freedom Oliver is a fake name. They don't know that she was arrested for killing her husband, a cop, twenty years ago. They don't know she put her two kids up for adoption. They don't know that she's now in witness protection, regretting ever making a deal with the Feds, and missing her children with a heartache so strong it makes her ill. Then, she learns that her daughter has gone missing, possibly kidnapped"

Such an over-the-top, unrealistic story - full of cliche's and sterotypes.
And yet, I couldn't put it down!

The titular character of this noir thriller, Freedom, has lived a life devoid of her past ever since entering Witness Protection. She even had to give up her children to keep them protected from the crazed family of her former husband. Now her brother in law is out of prison and looking for revenge. Freedom must confront her past enemies and personal demons to keep her loved ones safe in this debut page turner by Miller.

This book is pretty gritty and includes everything from biker bars, the Witness Protection Program, religious cults, super messed up families and Native Americans in the desert. Lots of violence and really unlikeable characters. I'd say it's written in the same pace and tone as Gone Girl but more like Michael Robotham in style and content. It's a good quick read.
