"Hamilton deepens Ava’s character, and imbues her with greater mettle and emotional fire, to the extent that book five is his best, most memorable, to date."
- National Post
"...increasingly compelling pages of high-value, high-octane Ava Lee adventures."
- London Free Press
"Filled with the usual twists and turns that make detective fiction fun, this one is... irresistible."
- Sun Times
"Those new to [Ava Lee's] world will find the book easily accessible... with their tight plotting and crackerjack heroine, Hamilton’s novels are the sort of crowd-pleasing, narrative-focused fiction we find all too rarely in this country."
- Quill & Quire
"The fifth Ava Lee novel is a winner on all fronts... The pacing is furious yet sneaky: You’re hooked before you realize it. The novel is driven by characterizations, action and multiple settings. Ian Hamilton’s textured voice allows the action to convey the emotional focus and his story-telling puts you at the centre of the conflict. The poignant conclusion adds yet another dimension to this multi-layered story. The series is addictive."
- Hamilton Spectator
"Hamilton knows how to keep the pages turning. He eases us into the seemingly tame world of white-collar crime, then raises the stakes, bringing the action to its peak with an intensity and violence that’s stomach-churning. His Ava Lee is a winner and a welcome addition to the world of strong female avengers."
- NOW Toronto
"Readers will never meet another forensic accountant like Lee... if only jet—setting around the world were as effortless as [she] makes it appear to be."
