Freddie has been in prison for three years, and Anna has been running the businesses in Fearless Girl by Emma Tallon. This is the fifth installment in the Tyler Family series. Anna isn’t as tough as Freddie, and a Russian mob has moved into parts of the Tyler territory during Freddie’s prison term. Anna has a new enterprise that Freddie is opposed to, and the animosity is evident. When Freddie looks at the books, he sees some discrepancies and is suspicious that Anna may be skimming from the family. The tension is palpable, and so is the suspense; readers want Anna and Freddie to have the relationship they had before prison, and it looks like it isn’t to be. Anna has been mother to Freddie’s son, and loves motherhood; Freddie respects the excellent job she has done with his son, but is jealous of how she has taken over; her leadership style is different from his and this causes some problems.
There is more profanity in this novel than is in the previous novels in the series, and an unnecessary graphic sexual episode. This is disappointing, since prior to this, the novels were suitable for all readers. Hopefully, Tallon will go back to her previous style because these novels are fascinating and her characters are well-developed so that readers love them even though they are mob. She has a knack for telling a believable story, and the novels are edge-of-the-seat. This novel is also, and fans of the series won’t want to miss it. Those who haven’t read the previous novels may not appreciate all that has happened before, and definitely should read them before this one, since it’s quite different from the others. Highly recommended for fans of the series.
