Meet Ava Lee, alluring but deadly, with a mind like a steel trap, as she chases millions of dollars and dangerous criminals around the globe in this exotic and fast-paced new crime series by Ian Hamilton.
In The Wild Beasts of Wuhan, Wong Changxing, a rich Chinese powerbroker, has just been bilked out of $100 million in an elaborate art forgery con. His one hope of recovering the money, and of saving face, is Ava Lee - a forensic accountant with a talent for tracking down untraceable funds.
With the help of her mentor, the Triad-connected Uncle, Ava traces the provenance of the meticulously forged paintings to Denmark, the Faroe Islands, New York, and London. As she infiltrates one of the most prestigious auction houses in the world, she uncovers a massive web of corruption, where high art and high-stakes fraud threaten more than just her client’s business - this is one scam that could get her killed. Ava Lee is one of the most scintillating, unique heroines to come along in years.

I enjoyed the book. Ava Lee brings a couple different perspectives or approaches to this sort of thriller. Still I felt there was something missing. It is difficult to criticize a book, even gently, without talking about spoilers, so I will leave it at my 4 star rating. I think if you enjoy this book, you would enjoy many by Barry Eisler. Also, it may be that I am retired and reading a book a week etc. so maybe I am jaded a bit, but I am not sure 9 hours is really enough to develop an interesting story.
