Publisher's Summary

Success used to be this savvy lawyer’s only rule. But now she’s putting everything on the line to bring a killer corporation to justice.

Since childhood, Yolanda Vance has forged her desire to escape poverty into a laser-like focus that took her through prep school and Harvard Law. So when her prestigious New York law firm is raided by the FBI, Yolanda turns in her corrupt bosses to save her career - and goes to work for the Bureau. Soon she’s sent undercover at Red, Black, and Green - an African-American “extremist” activist group back in her California college town. They claim a biotech corporation fueled by Pentagon funding is exploiting the neighborhood. But Yolanda is determined to put this assignment in her win column, head back to corporate law, and regain her comfortable life....

Until an unexpected romance opens her heart - and a suspicious death opens her eyes. Menacing dark money forces will do anything to bury Yolanda and the movement. Fueled by memories of who she once was - and what once really mattered most - how can she tell those who’ve come to trust her that she’s been spying? As the stakes escalate, and one misstep could cost her life, Yolanda will have to choose between betraying the cause of her people or invoking the wrath of the country’s most powerful law enforcement agency.

I really liked this novel, but felt it needed a bit of editing, I understand this was Aya de Leon's very first book, written 30 years ago and that explains a lot. I did enjoy listening to it (Aya de Leon narrated it herself and her voice is sublime) but it took a while to get going and I wished it had been more of a spy novel and less about social justice, though I totally get why this is brought into the novel and it almost works, almost. By the end I loved Yolanda and would actually like to read a sequel, I wonder if this will be a series, it certainly could!

Really pacy, funny and exciting read. Threw up some topical issues whilst also being a gripping thriller. Lovely narration by the author. Looking forward to her next one.
