An iTunes Store Best Book

Ava is back, and she is tougher than ever as she uncovers the secret world of art fraud, in the third book in the wildly popular and bestselling Ava Lee Series.

In The Wild Beasts of Wuhan, Uncle and Ava are summoned by Wong Changxing, “The Emperor of Hubei” and one of the most powerful men in China, when he discovers that the Fauvist paintings he recently acquired are in fact forgeries.

Ava uncovers a ring of fraudulent art dealers and follows their twisted trail to Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Dublin, London, and New York. But the job is further complicated by Wong’s second wife, the cunning and seductive May Ling, who threatens to interfere in Ava’s investigation.

Will Ava find the perpetrators and get the Wongs’ money back? Or will May Ling get to them first . . .

From Publishers Weekly

May 06, 2013 – An intelligent kick-ass heroine anchors Canadian author Hamilton s excellent third novel featuring forensic accountant Ava Lee (after 2012 s The Disciple of Las Vegas). Uncle, her business partner for more than a decade, summons Ava, a Canadian of Chinese descent who makes her living by chasing bad debts, to Hong Kong to meet with the most powerful man in China s Hubei province, Wong Changxing. Wong has just learned that 17 Fauvist paintings he collected over the years from the French art movement are apparently fakes. Irate at having been cheated out of $80 million, Wong and his wife, May Ling, want Ava to find those responsible for the fraud and make them pay in some other way than financial restitution. Ava s skeptical that she can do so, but begins a globetrotting series of inquiries to try. Clearly conversant with the art world, Hamilton makes the intricacies of forgery as interesting as a Ponzi scheme.

Customer Reviews

Entertaining Well writen

Ian Hamilton the author find the Way to keep you on the edge, from page 1 to the end, page turner book.

The Disciple Of Las Vegas

The book was good but forcing me to write a review in the midst of reading another book was definitely bad form.

My favorite one so far!

I am loving the development of the characters in Ava Lee's world. Ian Hamilton leaves you waiting on the edge of your seat for the next installment to this fabulous series.
