Second in the phenomenal Ava Lee series
Uncompromising. Tenacious. Fiercely intelligent. Ava Lee will follow the money . . . wherever it takes her.
Hired by Tommy Ordonez, the richest man in the Philippines, to recover $50 million in a land swindle, Ava has her work cut out. Tommy's brother has messed up and the Filipino billionaire's reputation is on the line.
Tracking the money, Ava uncovers an illegal online gambling ring, and follows the trail to Las Vegas. Once there, she turns her gaze to David Douglas, one of the greatest poker players in the world - and someone who knows more about the missing money than he's letting on.
Meanwhile, Jackie Leung, an old target of Ava's, has made it rich. He wants revenge, and he's going after Ava.
