THE NINJA BETRAYED
Lily Wong Series - Book Three
Book three in the Lily Wong series takes Lily and Ma to Hong Kong!
Things get personal for Chinese-Norwegian modern-day ninja Lily Wong in Hong Kong when she dives into the dangerous world of triads, romance, and corporate disaster during the height of the pro-democracy protests.
As Lily and Ma discover shaky finances, questionable loans, and plans for the future involving them both, Lily’s escalating romance with Daniel puts her heart at risk. Will her ninja skills allow her to protect her mother, the family business, and the renegade teen while navigating love, corporate intrigue, and murderous triads?
“Lily Wong is my kind of kick ass heroine. Love this series. Fast-paced and adrenaline-packed!”―Lisa Gardner, #1 bestselling author of BEFORE SHE DISAPPEARED
“Lily Wong is gutsy, smart, and irresistible―just like THE NINJA’S BLADE. Grab it!” ―Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award-winning author of THE DARK CORNERS OF THE NIGHT
THE NINJA'S BLADE
Lily Wong Series Book Two
In THE NINJA’S BLADE, Lily Wong―a Chinese-Norwegian modern-day ninja―has more trouble than she was bargaining for when controlling grandparents arrive in Los Angeles from Hong Kong at the same time she goes undercover in the dangerous world of youth sex trafficking. As she hunts for a kidnapped prostitution victim, a missing high school girl, and a sociopathic trafficker, the surviving members of a murderous street gang hunt for her.
Life would be easier if Lily knew who to trust. But when victims are villains, villains are victims, and even family is plotting against her, easy is not an option. All Lily can do is follow the trail wherever it leads: through a high school campus polarized by racial tension or the secret back rooms of a barber/tattoo/brothel or the soul-crushing stretch of Long Beach Boulevard known as The Blade.
She relies on her ninja skills to deceive and infiltrate, rescue and kill―whatever is necessary to free the girls from their literal and figurative slavery. If only those same skills could keep Lily’s conniving grandparents from hijacking her future.

THE NINJA DAUGHTER
Lily Wong Series - Book One
THE NINJA DAUGHTER is an action-packed thriller about a Chinese-Norwegian modern-day ninja with “Joy Luck Club” family issues who battles the Los Angeles Ukrainian mob, sex traffickers, and her own family to save two desperate women and an innocent child.
After the murder of her sister, Lily Wong dedicates her life and ninja skills to the protection of women. But her mission is complicated by the secrets she keeps. Her father, a North Dakota farmer turned Chinese restaurateur, and her Hong Kong-born mother, who is already disappointed at her less than feminine ways, would be horrified by what Lily has become. Only Lily’s Japanese sensei and the couple who run a local women’s shelter know the truth.
When a young mother Lily has rescued returns to her abusive marriage, Lily focuses her protection skills on a new client, a nightclub waitress in the crosshairs of an enigmatic assassin with no apparent reason for wanting her dead. The mystery leads Lily on a dangerous journey of tangled truths, deadly conspiracies, and gritty suspense.
