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. (Sarah Weinman National Post 2013-02-14)
...increasingly compelling pages of high-value, high-octane Ava Lee adventures. (Joan Barfoot London Free Press 2013-02-23)
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. (Robert J. Wiersema Quill & Quire 2013-03-01)
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. (Don Graves Hamilton Spectator 2013-03-01)
Filled with the usual twists and turns that make detective fiction fun, this one is... irresistible. (Andrew Armitage Sun Times 2013-02-23)

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. (Lesley McAllister NOW Toronto 2013-03-14)
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. (JoAnn Alberstat Chronicle Herald 2013-04-14)
