About this book

The Red Pole of Macau

An Ava Lee Novel: Book 4

Ian Hamilton

Ava is called upon to protect her family’s future in the latest installment of the acclaimed Ava Lee novels.

Ava’s half-brother Michael is desperate to pull out of a multi-million-dollar real-estate deal in the territory of Macau. The developers are threatening to halt construction unless Michael and his business partner put up another $80 million; the bank is looking for repayment on their loan; and her father is prepared to sell everything to protect his first-born son.

When Uncle is unable to help, Ava is forced to turn to a former client, the cunning and seductive May Ling Wong. As Ava untangles the twisted money trail, she finds herself drawn deeper and deeper into Hong Kong’s dark and deadly world of organized crime.

Will Ava protect her family’s future? Or will this job lead to a violent end…
