Description
(Finalist for the 2013 Lambda Award for Best Lesbian Crime/Mystery Novel) In this third Ava Lee investigation (following The Disciple of Las Vegas), Chinese powerbroker Wong Changxing has been bilked out of $100 million in an elaborate art forgery con. Wong's only hope of recovering the money and saving face is Chinese-Canadian forensic accountant Ava Lee, who specializes in tracking down supposedly untraceable funds. With the help of her mentor, former Triad enforcer Uncle Chow, Ava follows the provenance of the forged paintings to Denmark, the Faroe Islands, New York, and London. She infiltrates one of the most prestigious auction houses in the world and uncovers a massive web of corruption; but why is her client, Wong's cunning and seductive second wife May Ling, interfering in the investigation?

"The third of Hamilton's Ava Lee books to be published in the U.S. follows the Chinese-Canadian forensic accountant across the globe as she tracks a series of art forgeries for a powerful Hong Kong businessman. Reuniting high-profile clients with money that has wrongly been taken from them, Ava has developed a highly specialized skill set and code of ethics (not to mention an impressive frequent-flyer stash). This time she's hired by May Ling Wong to track down the people responsible for swindling May Ling's husband out of $100 million for fake Fauvist paintings. Ava's willingness to pay handsomely for information opens doors from New York City to the Faroe Islands. As she closes in on the key players in this high-stakes deception, she learns that her client may be taking matters into her own hands. You haven't seen cold and calculating until you've double-crossed this number cruncher."Booklist
