An astonishing debut crime thriller about an unforgettable woman who combines the genius and ferocity of Lisbeth Salander with the ruthless ambition of Walter White
The Crenshaw Six are a small but up-and-coming gang in South Central LA who have recently been drawn into an escalating war between rival drug cartels. To outsiders, the Crenshaw Six appear to be led by a man named Garcia . . . but what no one has figured out is that the gang’s real leader (and secret weapon) is Garcia’s girlfriend, a brilliant young woman named Lola. Lola has mastered playing the role of submissive girlfriend, and in the man’s world she inhabits she is consistently underestimated. But in truth she is much, much smarter–and in many ways tougher and more ruthless–than any of the men around her, and as the gang is increasingly sucked into a world of high-stakes betrayal and brutal violence, her skills and leadership become their only hope of survival.
Lola marks the debut of a hugely exciting new thriller writer, and of a singular, magnificent character unlike anyone else in fiction.
Lola is not for the faint of heart; especially if you are triggered by graphic violence, rape, the drug culture and men giving into their animalistic nature. This story will make you squirm as the fast paced yet entertaining storyline provides some interesting character development in a woman who takes feminism to a whole new level.
She’s trying to exert herself in a world that is completely defined by men while trying to survive amidst violence, drugs, gangs and like I said – men at their worst.
She proves she’s a fountain of strength, a survivor and most importantly a fighter with a moral edge even if it is defined by questionable boundaries. She has come through abusive situations, nightmarish parental influence, and now has to live another day with the Cartel breathing down her neck.
If you liked Sons of Anarchy or Breaking Bad then you’ll love seeing a woman take on similar action.
