The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines organized crime as “a group of individuals with an identified hierarchy, or comparable structure, engaged in significant criminal activity. These organizations often engage in multiple criminal activities and have extensive supporting networks.” The shady nature of organized crime has long captured the imagination of many and has inspired a number of books. In “Escape from Hell”, a gripping novel by Author Jackie Mc, readers will be taken into the underbelly of organized crime where an unlikely protagonist struggles to break free.
Meta is a 12-year-old girl with prodigious intellect and photographic memory. It is soon revealed that Meta is not like any other girl; not just because of her superior intelligence. Four years ago, she helplessly watched her mother die in a hail of bullets and her brother taken away. And then, in a sudden twist of fate, she fell under the protection of a crime boss. Known in illegal circles all over the world as Old Jacob, Meta’s jailer exposed her to his criminal empire and treated her as his own child. But Old Jacob is dying and his three sons are eager to take over and remove Meta from the picture. She must now rely on her cunning if she wants to survive and get what she wants the most: revenge.
“Escape from Hell” unfolds to a riveting chase across continents and will propel readers into the bowels of the criminal underworld. Pulsating with action and intrigue, this is a novel that will be hard to put down until the final revelation is made.
This book will be featured at the 2012 Bologna Book Fair in Bologna, Italy, on March 19-22, 2012.
