Eight years after getting out of prison, Shea Stevens is estranged from her outlaw biker family and has her own business building custom motorcycles.
But when her niece is kidnapped, Shea launches herself back into the criminal underworld of Arizona's high desert, determined to rescue the girl, even if she has to join forces with her father's biker gang to do it. Meanwhile, the local sheriff is looking for any reason to send her back to prison.
Shea soon learns not everything is as it appears. Torn between competing loyalties, she's forced to confront an ugly truth that nearly destroyed her years earlier.
To save her niece and bring those responsible to justice, Shea realizes she must follow her own rules no matter what. Even if it means risking her freedom and her life.
In her debut novel, Dharma Kelleher delivers a groundbreaking thriller that is equal parts Sons of Anarchy and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Iron Goddess takes readers on a gritty, high-speed adventure that will keep you turning pages late into the night.
“Shea Stevens is absolutely one of the more original crime fiction heroes to come along since Lisbeth Salander.”
—Son of Spade crime fiction reviews
