The Gun Runner's Daughter

Neil Gordon

Law student Allison Rosenthal has lived a life of privilege: her childhood spent in the finest schools, her summers spent in Martha’s Vineyard, her future both brilliant and certain. But when her father is arrested for illegal arms dealing Allison’s life is thrown into chaos.

As the trial rocks the presidential administration and the media’s unblinking eye focuses on her family, Allison is forced to decide where her loyalties lie.

Audacious and thrilling, The Gun Runner’s Daughter cleverly explores the consequences of personal and political entanglement.
