In Bad Company by Ke DeSol is a beautiful narrative that follows one woman’s fight to keep her family safe. Max had grown up with a unique love for the Harley Davidson motorbike, a love that drove her to join a group of bikers with the same passion, a group that became an extended family to her. But when she is betrayed and her family threatened, she knows that a sense of belonging to a group can’t come between her loyalty to the ones she deeply loves. Can she protect her family from gang violence and dirty politics? This is what the story is all about.

The writing is atmospheric and, from the very start, the reader gets a strong idea of the personality of the protagonist — an outgoing person with a wonderful love for kids and bikes. It doesn’t take long before readers are introduced to the fun activities related to the bikers' meet, an event where bikers can meet up and buy parts. But this is quickly followed by a shooting that ends up with Hemi Latu getting hurt. The search for the hospital where he lands and the fear that he could be dead add a strong emotional element to the story that gives it drama. This emotional intensity doesn’t waver as the narrative progresses with the conflict becoming more complicated and heightened. In Bad Company is a wonderful story that combines a strong sense of survival with family values and a woman’s love to create a realistic story filled with drama and lessons. Ke DeSol writes beautifully and succeeds in connecting to readers instantly. In Bad Company feels real and the humanity of the characters is well-explored.
