Ava Lee, martial arts master and unflappable forensic accountant, is back in her second outing, THE WILD BEASTS OF WUHAM, and this time she's unraveling a financial scandal in the art world to the tune of $100 million. From Denmark to the Faroe Islands, New York to London, Ava tracks down the provenance of a series of meticulously forged paintings.
Booklist is of the first to review THE WILD BEASTS OF WUHAN and they said, "You haven’t seen cold and calculating until you’ve double-crossed this number cruncher. Another strong entry from Arthur Ellis Award–winner Hamilton."
Library Journal gave the first Ava Lee novel, THE DISCIPLE OF LAS VEGAS, a starred review and said, "This financial mystery echoes Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone series heroine, but Ava is edgier and computer savvy; she is as resourceful as Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander but without the emotional baggage and extreme violence. Highly recommended."
The Ava Lee Series has been sold in more than twenty countries, and has been optioned for film by Strada Films/Union Pictures.
THE WILD BEASTS OF WUHAM will be available in June from Picador.
