Fans of the Emma Tallon’s Drew Series have been waiting patiently (or not) for the sixth installment in the fascinating series, Her Enemy, where it is the one-year anniversary of discovering Ruby’s body and a trip to the cemetery, as well as Scarlet messing up on planning a job that puts Cillian on the spot and having to carry out a heist due to a rich snob falling for him and snubbing Scarlet who was supposed to be in charge. To make matters worse, Scarlet receives messages from someone who is trying to blackmail her insisting that they have video of her murdering her cousin, Ruby. Although Scarlet knows she didn’t murder Ruby and that Ruby actually had tried to murder her, she can’t figure out who could know anything about the death of Ruby since it was only Ruby, Scarlet, and Chain. Scarlet is under a lot of pressure, and Lily and the twins notice, which causes conflict. It seems there is no way out for Scarlet and she thinks she is going to have to go away for good.
Tallon has a talent for weaving a believable tale that has plenty of ups and downs, as well as scenarios that it seems there is no way out. However, readers will find that somehow the Drews find ways to solve their problems – not legally, of course – but the way of the London underground. The story is believable, and because most readers aren’t connected with the London underground and don’t know how it really works, it seems viable. Although readers of the series have a good idea about the characters, each subsequent novel develops the characters even more. Even though they are in an illegal business, they are loved and readers will want them to come out ahead.
All told, this is another excellent novel. It is recommended that readers start with the first installment and read them through, although this would still be good on its own.
