Blue Lady’s Mission Under Fire is the third book in The Angelica Mason Series by Stephany Tullis. The main character in the series is Angelica, a woman torn between her desire to do good and try to change the world, and the rise of violence in her country. Angelica gets fired by her boss, the mayor of the town of Smoothville, only to find out that she has been replaced by someone from her past. Quickly recuperating from this low blow, Angelica soon becomes a project manager on a contentious project funded by the government. This is when her survival mode kicks in, waking up her alter ego, the Blue Lady – her only compass steering her in the right direction in this complicated situation. Going undercover, Angelica is faced with numerous challenges, violent acts of homicide and abuse, treacherous people, and suspicious behavior within her team. This applies particularly to the charming private investigator Dez Cooke, who seems to have a tight hold on her new boss. Together with the Blue Lady, Angelica tries her best to survive the challenges, while at the same time figuring out her role in this violent world.

Stephany Tullis creates a hectic, tense atmosphere that lingers throughout Blue Lady’s Mission Under Fire, and at the same time, she positions her characters in complicated, often dark situations that feel both real and dangerous. The novel explores universal themes of love, friendship, and life purpose in today’s violent world. Angelica Mason and her alter ego the Blue Lady seem as if they are in conflict most of the time; however, I think this echoes the confusion that is present in Angelica’s mind and heart. The Blue Lady becomes her beacon in the darkness so that she doesn’t get lost in the overwhelming situations that come her way. Tullis tackles important contemporary themes and social and cultural issues. She skillfully incorporates them in the story, creating a sense of urgency and in the end, a sense of hope for a better world.
