The Red Pole of Macau features forensic accountant Ava Lee who is a kickass heroine. Yes, I said accountant and kickass in the same sentence. In addition to a calculator, Ava possesses some scary martial arts skills. She is called to Hong Kong to help her half brother Michael who she has only met once. He and his business partner, Simon, bought into an investment in Macau with a property developer. A year later, nothing has happened with the property and the developer is demanding an additional influx of cash to get construction started. Ava soon discovers that members of a Triad are involved and there is no room for negotiation. But Ava has friends of her own and she doesn't intend to lose.

This is a fast-paced, action romp with no dull moments. Ian Hamilton has written a strong, young female lead without going over the top. Hong Kong and Macau provide a colourful background for the story. It was a very enjoyable read and I'll be picking up other books in this series.
