Diamond Queen of Singapore, The : An Ava Lee Novel Paperback / softback

Part of the The Ava Lee Novels: The Triad Years series

Description

In the latest thrilling novel in the Ava Lee series, Ava launches an investigation into a fraudulent investment scheme that sends her around the globe on the trail of illegal diamonds, drug smuggling, and offshore banking. Ava and Pang Fai are in Toronto to attend a party at the home of Ava's mother, Jennie Lee.

When Ava's best friend, Mimi, fails to appear, Ava goes looking for her.

She finds Mimi at home, distraught over the death of her father, who has taken his own life after losing the family's savings in a fraudulent investment scheme.

Moved to avenge this tragedy and recover the stolen money, Ava launches an investigation that takes her to cities on three continents. As she tracks the money, Ava is thrust into the underworld of illegal diamond trading, international drug smuggling, and the world's most secretive offshore banking haven.

Along the way, a number of Ava's old friends offer their assistance-from her business partner, May Ling Wong, to her ge ge, the Mountain Master of Shanghai, Xu.

Most poignant of all, Ava is visited in her dreams by Uncle, who offers her much-needed guidance as she confronts a new face of power and corruption.
