An innocent boy is on the run from the law and a ruthless assassin in the New York Times bestselling author’s “heart-pounding tale of suspense” (People).
After a guard is murdered at a juvenile detention center and one of the inmates is found missing, it appears that Nathan Bailey has graduated from car thief to cold-blooded killer. Now the subject of a nationwide manhunt, Nathan is the most wanted fugitive in America—and only twelve years old.
But Nathan is also the target of another kind of hunt. After escaping his corrupt uncle and killing that guard in self-defense, he has more to fear than legal prosecution. He’s also the target of a savage hit man. To survive he has only himself, his smarts, and his honesty to depend on. But will that be enough as he takes on a world of violence beyond his comprehension?
"Fast, intriguing . . . a clever plot with enough menace to keep readers on the edge of their seats." —Boston Herald
