This book gets us about as personal as we've been so far. This time the money Ava is looking for is for her own business and developments with Uncle have her staying in Hong Kong instead of Toronto.
I like that this story has less concentration on name brands than we've seen in the past but I'm not sure I like the increased sexual content of the last few.
I am also left wondering just what Ava sees in Maria, she is always portrayed as so needy and almost childlike, which seems unusual in a professional woman of her standing.

This is more like it. With this book, the author is back on track. Ava does have the tables turned on her in this novel but the situation is totally plausible unlike the 5th novel. Reading this book gave me as great a pleasure as the 1st 4 novels. I am looking forward to reading the 7th book.

I have to say this book is the series is unnecessarily long for its story line. Heavy in cultural ceremonial details (a Chinese marriage, funeral arrangement), it makes you feel you are reading a non-fiction and not a crime novel. The little action in the story took place toward the very end, and our heroine didn't fare that well either. For me it is not the action/crime-solving novel I was hoping to read.
