"Ava Lee is a young Chinese-Canadian forensic accountant, specializing in recovering debts and stolen money for wealthy clients. At 115 lbs. she hardly seems a threat, but her razor-sharp intellect and resourcefulness allow her to succeed where traditional methods have failed. Ava is mourning the death of her longtime business partner and mentor, "Uncle" Chow Tung.
