When everything changes, you have to come out fighting.
It’s been three years since Freddie Tyler was sent to prison, now he’s back on the streets of London and about to find out that everything has changed.
As Freddie enters his West End club for the first time in years, he finds ex-girlfriend Anna Davis sitting behind his desk, confidently leading his team of men. Anna used to hate the world he lived in, but she has now become a big part of it. And she’s not about to give up running the family business easily.
Anna shows a toughness Freddie has never witnessed in her before when she tells him about her new enterprise, smuggling stolen diamonds through London’s Hatton Garden. And alarm bells start ringing when Freddie meets Anna’s new partner. Cold and ruthless, Roman Gains isn’t someone Freddie trusts around the club and particularly not around Anna.
Whilst tensions flare between Anna and Freddie, a new Russian firm enters their world, determined to bring the Tylers down. And when they take out one of his best men, Freddie has to take drastic action to wrestle control from Anna. But she has other ideas. And when Roman becomes Anna’s closest ally, Freddie finally reaches breaking point. Could this be the fall of the Tyler empire and the last time Freddie and Anna are on the same side?
Since the authors previous novel, I have been desperate to catch back up with Anna and Freddie to see how things have been with Freddie, along with his brother Paul, being sent to prison.
Wow, wow, wow, wow! I so wasn’t expecting such a volatile and explosive read. Things are insanely intense between Anna and Freddie as they try to find some happy medium of picking up where they left off, work wise. It was agonising seeing this once so close and loving couple being at complete loggerheads. My heart was in my mouth as to where the author was going to take this particular thread and I read on with some trepidation.
As with all this authors novels, there is plenty of crime and action along the way. In an under world of lies and deceit, it is a very scary place to be that leaves you constantly looking over your shoulder. You can guarantee the competition are never going to play nicely which made for an edge of your seat read.
Fearless Girl is a tense and gripping page turner. My only ever issue is that the author leaves me desperate for more. My heart was racing at the end of the novel, wondering what is next in store for the characters. I was literally hanging off every word, waiting to see how the author was going to play things out and boy does she mess with your head. Please, please, please don’t keep us waiting to long for the next one!
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Emma Tallon is a British, gritty crime writer, adventurer, Londoner and mother to a young son. Starting her career a few years ago as a ghostwriter, Emma crafted some of the most adventurous, edgy and heart-wrenching stories you can find on the shelves today.
In March 2017 Emma stepped out of the literary shadows and self-published her first book, Life Game. The book was an instant success, the results far exceeding anything she had expected. As news of Life Games popularity spread, she joined forces with W.F.Howes and the audiobook was launched in October 2017.
In December 2017, Emma signed a book deal with publishers Bookouture. This included Life Game which was changed, re-edited and re-released as Runaway Girl.
Drawing inspiration for her books from a mixture of her own observations and an active imagination, the characters Emma paints are colourful and larger than life. Her story lines are an interesting recipe of deep emotion and violent grit, that keep her readers engrossed.
With more books in the works for this series already, Emma has many more stories planned out for the future.
