Summary
A young Chinese Canadian, named Ava Lee, is a forensic accountant who works for an elderly Hong Kong based Uncle, who might have ties to the Triads. She is 115 pounds soaking wet and hardly seems a threat, but her razor sharp intellect and resourcefulness allows her to succeed where conventional methods have failed. In The Water Rat of Wanchai, she travels across continents to track 5 million dollars of owed money by a seafood company. Here, in Guyana, she meets her match; Captain Robbins, a hulky man and godfather like figure who controls the police, politicians and criminals. He decides in return for his help, he wants a cut of Ava's 5 million, and he will do what ever is necessary to insure he gets his fair cut.
