Ava travels to Beijing for the premiere of her secret lover Pang Fai's latest film, Mao's Daughter. After the screening, a distraught Fai tells Ava that she is being blackmailed by senior officials of the China Movie Syndicate. The Syndicate seeks sexual favours in return for their continued support of Fai's career and films. When Fai resists, the threats become increasingly violent and far-reaching, including the release of scandalous videos of the young Fai that could end her career entirely.

Working alongside Fai and several of her friends, Ava delves deep into the seedy world of the Chinese film industry in an attempt to liberate her lover from the grasp of the Syndicate. But can Ava save Fai from her memories?

Too much about her sexuality in this one. I liked it when her sex life was in the background and having her deal with business problems. This book is too much about politics, sexual and otherwise (the so-called Chinese film industry).

I enjoyed this Ava Lee story. It is a departure from the usual business mystery oriented style of this series and focuses on her personal relationship with Fai and helping her deal with a mystery of her own. A good series, finishes with a nice set up for the next book.

Love the series...but preferred it when Uncle was alive. I don't find Ava's business adventures all that exciting.
This time around she's helping out her new lover, Pang Fai, the movie actress who is being blackmailed. The story line took too long to reach a conclusion that seemed rather obvious, but it does end on a cliffhanger. The character of Fai seemed rather flat to me. We really don't learn much about her and she doesn't really seem suited to be Ava's lover, IMHO. Rather dull, in fact.
Here's hoping the next book will be more exciting. Sounds like it will be, judging from the cliffhanger.

I really love the Ava Lee series and it was a bit more domestic in this one what with more time spent with Ava and her girl, but I anxiously await the next one. Too much happened at the end so it's a real cliffhanger.....

love all the books @ especially Ava. Too much about her sex life in this one, not that I disapprove of her sexuality.

Love this series. Ava is an interesting and complex character and while sometimes there is violence that is not the central theme. All are a quick read and I recommend the series. Some value in reading them in order so you understand characters who reappear however each story is complete by itself
