What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for The Goddess of Yantai

“Told in his typical punchy and forthright style, Hamilton’s latest thriller is a rapid-fire read that leaves the reader breathless and eagerly anticipating the next installment . . . This is a series of books that just seems to get better and better.” — The Mind Reels

Praise for The King of Shanghai

“Fast-paced suspense, exotic locales, and a rich cast of characters ... make for yet another hugely entertaining hit.” — Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Good fun, too, for those who like to combine crime fiction with armchair traveling.” — Booklist

Praise for The Princeling of Nanjing

“The reader is offered plenty of Ava in full flower as the Chinese-Canadian glamour puss who happens to be gay, whip smart, and unafraid of whatever dangers come her way.” — Toronto Star

“Ava Lee has a new business, a new look, and, most important, a new Triad boss to appreciate her particular financial talents . . . We know that Ava will come up with a plan and Hamilton will come up with a twist.” — Globe and Mail

Praise for The Imam of Tawi Tawi

“Combines lots of action with Ava’s acute intelligence and ability to solve even the most complex problems” — Lit Hub

Praise for the Ava Lee series and Ian Hamilton

“Whip smart, kick-butt heroine, mixed into a perfect combination of adventure and exotic location. Can’t wait to see where Ava is off to next.” — Taylor Stevens, author of the Vanessa Michael Monroe Series

“The only thing scarier than being ripped off for a few million bucks is being the guy who took it and having Ava Lee on your tail. If Hamilton’s kick-ass accountant has your number, it’s up.” — Linwood Barclay

“A heck of a fun series, sharing Ian Fleming’s penchant for intrigue and affinity for the finer things in life and featuring Ava Lee — a remarkable hero, a twenty-first century James Bond with real depth beneath her tough- as-nails exterior. Five stars and first class!” — Owen Laukkanen, author of The Professionals

“Ava Lee, that wily, wonderful hunter of nasty business brutes, is back in her best adventure ever . . . if you haven’t yet discovered Ava Lee, start here.” — Globe and Mail

“Slick, fast-moving escapism reminiscent of Ian Fleming.” — Booklist

“A hugely original creation.” — Irish Independent

“Crackling with suspense, intrigue, and danger, your fingers will be smoking from turning these pages. Don’t ever, ever, mess with Ava Lee. She’s not your average accountant.” — Terry Fallis, author of The Best Laid Plans
