Boss Girl is the third installment in Emma Tallon’s London Underworld series. In this novel, Anna Davis’s boyfriend, Freddy Tyler (London’s most powerful mob boss), is ready to team up with crime boss Frank Gambino. The problem is that Gambino has contacted Anna and won’t pair up with Freddy unless Anna agrees to turn over her successful bar to him. Anna is torn between losing what she has worked for all her life and disappointing Freddy. When Anna disappears, the suspense begins to build, and readers will find themselves on the edge and wondering if their favorite characters will survive.

Tallon is not only an excellent storyteller, but she has captured what most of us think the underground world is actually like – dangerous, with plenty of money and violence. (Of course, most of us aren’t privy to that lifestyle, but her scenarios are pretty convincing.) Readers will find themselves wanting Anna and Freddy to win no matter what. Tallon’s characters are well-developed, and even though they are underworld figures, they are likeable; their rivals are much worse. The English atmosphere is different from what most readers are familiar with and it adds some unexpected charm to the novel. The novel is well-written and well-organized, and the main problem is putting it down.

The London Underworld series is excellent and readers will not want to miss any of the novels. They are a bit different from the norm and keep readers on their seats. Boss Girl is a good choice for anyone who loves building suspense, twists and turns, and surprise endings.
