Description

Never cut the drugs--leave them pure.
Guns are meant to be shot--keep them loaded.
Family is everything--betray them and die.

Harley McKenna is the only child of North County's biggest criminal. Duke McKenna's run more guns, cooked more meth, and killed more men than anyone around. Harley's been working for him since she was sixteen--collecting debts, sweet-talking her way out of trouble, and dreading the day Duke would deem her ready to take over his command. Now time's running out. A terminal cancer diagnosis leaves Duke with six months to live, and their business rivals, the Springfields, are circling. If Duke's illness is revealed, a bloody war will break out through North County and Harley will be the one left to pay the price. With her father secretly in hospice care, she makes a choice: to sabotage his business and frame Carl Springfield for it.

Blowing up meth labs is dangerous business and getting caught will be the end of her, but Harley has one advantage: she is her father's daughter. And McKennas always win.

BARBED WIRE HEART is a novel set in the mountains of rural Northern California that explores the meth trade through the eyes of a kingpin's daughter hell-bent on destroying everything her father's built in order to save her town, her life, and the battered women she protects.
