About the Book
Gertie O’Leary is a 15-year-old girl with a messy bird’s nest of red hair, a serious softball pitch, and a dream to be a movie director. She also has a $2 million price on her head.

McKenna finds out that Gertie’s stepfather has just died in what looks like a boating accident and that Gertie’s mother cares more about not losing money to blackmail than saving her daughter.
As the unwanted child of divorced, self-focused parents, Gertie has no defenders. So McKenna appoints himself her savior. But McKenna is one man up against a small army of twisted murderers whose orders are to kill the girl…
