Today’s Riot Rundown is sponsored by LOLA: A NOVEL by Melissa Scrivner Love.
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 the gang’s real leader (and secret weapon) is Garcia’s girlfriend, a brilliant young woman named Lola.
“Lola is a gritty, fast-paced thriller rife with gangland intrigue layered over a moving story of absolution.” –Booklist
