Aya de León's action-packed, sexually-charged, politically significant novels have been described as "a rallying cry" (The Washington Post) and praised for their "poetic and savvy descriptions of women's inner and external challenges that are reminiscent of Sister Souljah's or Ntozake Shange's work" (Bitch Magazine). Now she takes on issues of climate justice, corporate corruption, and government surveillance of marginalized activists in an electrifying story about a high-powered attorney who goes undercover to infiltrate a Bay Area activist group.

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.

From prep school to Harvard Law, Yolanda Vance always looked out for number one. So when her prestigious New York law firm is busted by the Feds, Yolanda turns in her corrupt bosses to save her career--and goes to work for the FBI. Soon she's tapped to go undercover at Red, Black, and Green--an African-American "extremist" activist group back in her California college town. RGB claims 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. Powerful dark money forces will do anything to bury RBG and Yolanda. Now fueled by memories of who she once was--and what once really mattered most--how can she reveal the truth without double-crossing the FBI? And 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 need to practice a new kind of law--the law of survival.
