Eight thrillers featuring moms on a mission

Christina McDonald's new novel is The Night Olivia Fell.

At CrimeReads she tagged eight thrillers featuring mothers on a mission, including:
Fierce Kingdom, Gin Phillips

This mother on a mission finds herself trapped at a zoo with her small son when shooters start killing people. As the shooters get ever closer, Joan must decide what she’ll risk in order to save her son. The relationship between Joan and little Lincoln is beautiful, and a nice break from the tense, panic-inducing moments when they are both under threat from the shooters. But Joan is determined to keep her son alive no matter what, asking complex moral questions about how far a mother should go to protect her child, even if it means putting someone else’s loved ones in danger.

Fierce Kingdom is among Sarah J. Harris's eight mysteries with images that might stay with you forever and Mary Kate Carr's eleven recent novels that powerfully tackle gun violence.
