Lucile Garrett is just thirteen when she meets Clint Palmer, a charismatic stranger who will forever change her life. The year is 1934, and as the windblown dust of the Great Depression rakes the Oklahoma plains, Palmer offers Lucile and her father, homeless and hungry, the irresistible promise of a better future. But when they follow Palmer to Texas, Lucile's father mysteriously disappears, launching man and girl on an epic journey through the American Southwest: a spree of violence and murder that culminates in one of the most celebrated criminal trials of the era. Based on a true story, Hard Twisted is a chilling tale of survival and redemption, and a young girl's coming of age in a world as cruel as it is beautiful.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Now and again you discover a thriller that sweeps you off your feet. This is one * Daily Mail *
A gritty, gripping read, and one that begs to be put on film * Los Angeles Times *
A superb first novel ... Written in a style that is the prose equivalent of a Dorothea Lange photograph ... Extraordinarily moving reading * Guardian *
Greaves's deft prose twinkles like Okie campfires (in the night). Storytelling at its most compelling: raw, yet tender and as dangerous as warm moonshine breath on a young girl's neck * Sir Alan Parker, director of Bugsy Malone and The Life of David Gale *
For crime lovers who want a genuinely gripping read * Glamour *
A riveting and stylistically stripped-down tale ... Subtle, seductive writing ... His evocation of place is something to behold * Big Issue *
A taut and intriguing thriller * Sunday Times *
