I didn't expect to love this book so much!  Lola is a crafty, powerful, and underestimated gang leader who becomes involved in business with the cartel.  As the stakes get higher, she continues to prove how cunning and ruthless she can be, while retaining a tender side.  Her family dynamics and the history of the gang are revealed slowly, which gave me a better understanding of Lola and made me hope more and more that she would survive her business transaction, on which she wagered her life.  This is a fast-paced, well-written story of action and determination - highly recommended!

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.
