Skid Row Chatter host Tom Pitts welcomes Jordan Harper to the studio.  

Jordan Harper's  first novel, She Rides Shotgun, has been published by Ecco and reviewers are predicting nominations and awards for the author. The book tells the tale of Polly McClusky, a California pre-teen whose father has just been released from prison. Both of them are being pursued by a merciless gang of white supremacists because her father Nate didn’t play along with them while incarcerated..  I was born and raised in Springfield, Missouri, Queen City of the Ozarks. Crime has been a passion of mine since I was a little kid. My family on my mother’s side has been involved in law enforcement for a long time. My grandfather was an old Ozarks badass who was a prison guard and made knives in his spare time and slept with a gun under his pillow. She Rides Shotgun is dedicated in his memory.   She Rides Shotgun wraps a very human story about a daughter and her father in a candy-coated shell of prison gangs, drug deals, skinhead tattoo numerology, bent cops, shankings, meth, cartel dope mules. It’s an ode to familial love and armed robbery. It draws from a mini-genre of crime, the criminal and child on the run, for fans of The Professional, Paper Moon or Lone Wolf and Cub. It’s paced like a shotgun blast.
