    A Female Protagonist To Love!

    I'm not sure who, but someone compared Hamilton's protagonist Ava Lee to Lisbeth Salander (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and I couldn't agree more. Here is a woman with a fascinating and unique skill set and a completely different set of priorities from the usual leading female and I found myself drawn to her in the same way I was drawn to Lisbeth. A unique heroine and an amazing narrative had me staying up until after midnight to see how it would all turn out. A new female protagonist to love - can't wait to read more about her adventures!

    The Water Rat of Wanchi

    Ian Hamilton has written a compelling mystery with one of the most intriguing protagonists and she is Asian-Canadian. He uses the tools of a skilled writer, setting scenes so we feel we are right there listening in on phone conversations and clipped diaogue, ready to spring into action with Ava Lee when she is under attack. She looks petite and reserved, if confident. No one would guess the physical damage she can inflict. Can a forensic accountant be so motivated to collect on monies absconded she is willing to go toe to toe with creepy and vicious crooks? I'm curious about her amazing talent in the Chinese martial arts, but what really makes her fascinating is her persistence tracking the money, returning it to clients not all too worthy, and giving it to the wicked who would like to trap her or snuff her out. I especially liked the prequel giving us Ava Lee's Chinese Mama and Hong Kong father and the story of how she met Uncle. The personal story attracts me even more than the rising suspense and challenging plot twists. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
