Hannah Tinti's second novel functions as both a thrilling adventure yarn, hearkening back to westerns of yesteryear, and as a moving depiction of a parent-child relationship. The titular Samuel Hawley is a former career criminal bent on providing as stable a life as possible for his teenage daughter, Loo, who may have picked up more of her father's characteristics than he'd like to admit. Tinti masterfully couples the pair's attempt at domestic normalcy in a small New England fishing town with a whirlwind tour through Hawley's mysterious past that will have readers on the edge of their seat. For those who are looking for their next gripping story, this is not one to be missed!
