The Wild Beasts of Wuhan: An Ava Lee Novel

Die entscheidende Frage ist, wer profitierte von d Ava Lee bricht die Familienkreuzfahrt der Lees in die Karibik ab, um auf Onkel Chows Drängen einen Auftrag des unvorstellbar reichen Ehepaars Wong anzunehmen. It was creative and well thought out. She goes into the case with less information than she needs to force a settlement, and has to backtrack, get more information, and then re-engage. As she infiltrates one of the most prestigious auction houses in the world, she uncovers a massive web of corruption, where high art and high-stakes fraud threaten more than just her client's business--this is one scam that could get her killed. Both Ava and Uncle are hesitant due to a lack of knowledge about the art world, but Ava agrees to do some initial digging. If you like lots of twists and turns in your mystery plots, you won't really find them here. This is punctuated by a certain repetitiveness of her mundane choices, namely the stuff she wears and the drinks she drinks.

The Wild Beasts of Wuhan: An Ava Lee Novel

And what a home it is, eight stories!! I don't know how long the agreements with Starbucks, Brooks Brothers, Cole Hahn, etc last, but I hope they run out soon. What she is wearing, what she is eating, what flight she is taking and she takes quite a few flights. The forgeries are brilliant pieces but definitely fake. But the job is further complicated by Wong's second wife, the cunning and seductive May Ling, who threatens to interfere in Ava's investigation. I was very distressed by the way the book ended, and that is one of the disadvantages of reading actively.

I recommend The Wild Beasts of Wuhan by Ian Hamilton. I am a big fan of art, and like reading about art forgeries etc. Her observations make the most foreign things seem familiar, if not universal.
