Product Details


“Everybody in Painter, Ore. knows Freedom Oliver, who makes a jaw-dropping entrance in Jax Miller’s first novel FREEDOM’S CHILD…there’s a reckless power to Miller’s untamed prose…she can toss off a bruising one-liner…or offer a vivid description of Freedom’s brain when she’s off her meds… And sometimes she’s just plain amazing.” New York Times Book Review

“Seldom has a literary creation bounced off the page with as much raw vitality as Freedom Oliver…one of the standout debuts of the year.”—The Guardian

“It’s fast, it’s furious, it takes no prisoners.” —The Sunday Independent

“[T]his chilling novel moves along so quickly it makes you dizzy. A compelling read but don’t expect to have a good night’s sleep afterwards.” The Sunday Times

“Beautiful, boozy, unstable and lion-brave, Freedom ought to belong in a comic book, but comes blisteringly to life on the page.”
Telegraph UK

“Miller creates an intriguingly flawed heroine in Freedom…thrilling.” Kirkus 

“Hits like a beer bottle to the head…” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“…a propulsive, full-throttle tale of revenge and redemption.” The Irish Times

“For fans of fast-paced reads, reckless characters, and noir, this thriller will be a hit.” Library Journal

“Cadenced prose salted with descriptive magic.” —Booklist 

A powerful read from an impressive new voice…Visceral and brazen, Jax Miller’s debut is an engrossingly raw exposé of one woman’s reparation, knotted with storylines from the dirty underbelly of biker bars, Native American legends, religious cults and one shocking plot twist you’ll never see coming…You’ll read nothing like it!” BookPage

“An unsettling, jarring thriller that’ll have you tearing through chapters at page-ripping speed.” —TheShortlist

“A terrific read from a powerful new voice.” —Karin Slaughter, New York Times Bestselling author of Cop Town

“Original, compelling and seriously recommended.” —Lee Child, New York Times Bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
Freedom’s Child is wildly imaginative, wholly unique, and utterly unapologetic.” —Attica Locke, Edgar-nominated author of Black Water Rising and Pleasantville
“A terrific modern noir. Think of a tough-as-nails, tattooed Mildred Pierce trying to do right in today’s corrupt and twisted world. It features a wild and terrifying cast of characters, including the roughest bunch of miscreants since Ma Barker propagated.” —Ace Atkins, New York Times bestselling author of The Redeemers and Robert B. Parker’s Kickback

Freedom’s Child is a remarkable novel that is as emotionally gripping as it is pulse-pounding. Equally heartbreaking and hard-boiled, Jax Miller has delivered a sensational debut novel.” —Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street
“A relentless and fiercely compelling debut. FREEDOM’S CHILD will hold you captive until the very last page.” Richard Montanari, author of Deviant Way and The Doll Maker

“In Freedom Oliver, Jax Miller has created a daring protagonist that is nothing as she first appears and everything you want her to be: brash, passionate, strong, vibrant and memorable. She deftly navigates religious cults, witness protection, and internal demons all the way through to a surprising, thrilling end.  Freedom’s Child is a page-turning tale of redemption that explores the complicated, intertwined bonds of motherhood and justice.” —Elizabeth L. Silver, author of The Execution of Noa P. Singleton
