Editorial Reviews

"Hamilton deepens Ava's character, and imbues her with greater mettle and emotional fire, to the extent that book five is his best, most memorable, to date." - Sarah Weinman, National Post"...increasingly compelling pages of high-value, high-octane Ava Lee adventures." - Joan Barfoot, London Free Press"Those new to [Ava Lee's] world will find the book easily accessible... with their tight plotting and crackerjack heroine, Hamilton's novels are the sort of crowd-pleasing, narrative-focused fiction we find all too rarely in this country." - Robert J. Wiersema, Quill & Quire"The fifth Ava Lee novel is a winner on all fronts... The pacing is furious yet sneaky: You're hooked before you realize it. The novel is driven by characterizations, action and multiple settings. Ian Hamilton's textured voice allows the action to convey the emotional focus and his story-telling puts you at the centre of the conflict. The poignant conclusion adds yet another dimension to this multi-layered story. The series is addictive." - Don Graves, Hamilton Spectator"Filled with the usual twists and turns that make detective fiction fun, this one is... irresistible." - Andrew Armitage, Sun Times"Hamilton knows how to keep the pages turning. He eases us into the seemingly tame world of white-collar crime, then raises the stakes, bringing the action to its peak with an intensity and violence that's stomach-churning. His Ava Lee is a winner and a welcome addition to the world of strong female avengers." - Lesley McAllister, NOW Toronto"Readers will never meet another forensic accountant like Lee... if only jet-setting around the world were as effortless as [she] makes it appear to be." - JoAnn Alberstat, Chronicle Herald
