Aya de Le n'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 corrution, and government surveillance of marginalized activists in an electrifying story about a high power attorney who goes under cover to infiltrate a Bay Area extremist activist group.
