Author(s): Ian Hamilton
Ava Lee is a petite young Chinese-Canadian forensic accountant who works for an elderly Hong Kong-based 'Uncle'. In tracking millions of dollars across continents the stakes are often high, sometimes violent and always shady, but Ava Lee's razor-sharp intelligence and unorthodox rules of engagement allow her to succeed where traditional methods have failed. This is a novel full of suspense, with an equally fascinating heroine.
Ava Lee is tough, fearless and resourceful... a true original. Linwood Barclay In the age of Lisbeth Salander, it's not hard to see why Hamilton's jet-setting heroine is so appealing. National Post This is a terrific story... Ava Lee is going to be chasing the accounts for a long, long time. Globe and Mail When the central character looks like Lucy Liu, kicks like Jackie Chan and has a travel budget like Donald Trump, the story is anything but boring. Montreal Gazette
