A coming-of-age novel and a literary thrill ride about the price we pay to protect the people we love most. “A father-daughter road trip you won’t soon forget.”—Richard Russo Samuel Hawley isn’t like the other fathers in Olympus, Massachusetts. A loner who spent years living on the run, he raised his beloved daughter, Loo, on the road, moving from motel to motel, always watching his back. Now that Loo’s a teenager, Hawley wants only to give her a normal life. In his late wife’s hometown, he finds work as a fisherman, while Loo struggles to fit in at the local high school. Growing more and more curious about the mother she never knew, Loo begins to investigate. Soon, everywhere she turns, she encounters the mysteries of her parents’ lives before she was born. This hidden past is made all the more real by the twelve scars her father carries on his body. Each scar is from a bullet Hawley took over the course of his criminal career. Each is a memory: of another place on the map, another thrilling close call, another moment of love lost and found. As Loo uncovers a history that’s darker than she could have known, the demons of her father’s past spill over into the present—and together both Hawley and Loo must face a reckoning yet to come.

This contemporary interpretation of the Greek myth of Hercules, whose twelve labors are represented by Hawley’s twelve bullet wounds, is at once an American epic, a hardboiled crime story, and an exploration of familial love.”—Otto Penzler, LitHub “An unforgettable novel.”—PopSugar “Tinti’s storytelling is masterful—she weaves together dozens of beautifully drawn characters.”—NYLON “Tinti knows how to blend emotional connections with engrossing plots.”—The Huffington Post “Hannah Tinti proves herself to be an old-fashioned storyteller of the highest order.”—Ann Patchett, author of Commonwealth
