Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley, Hannah TintiA literary crime novel that transcends the genre, Hannah Tinti’s story is about Samuel Hawley, bearer of scars from the dozen bullet wounds acquired in encounters with worse criminals, and Loo his teenage daughter. He’s raised Loo single-handed and on-the-go across America since the tragic death of his wife, but they’ve lighted on the Atlantic coast more or less permanently, in order to give her a normal adolescence and despite the risk his past may catch up with him. Author Tinti’s deeply imagined characters tackle their problems with gusto, no matter what is thrown at them, which is a lot more than twelve bullets. Pure pleasure to read, and our full review suggests why.
