Out 11/5 - Pre-Order Now!
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.
“Tori Eldridge reinvents Mickey Spillane toughness in THE NINJA DAUGHTER. A Thoroughly enjoyable romp with the new literary ball of ninja thunder.” – Weston Ochse, Award-winning author of SEAL TEAM 666
“Complex and engaging, THE NINJA DAUGHTER is a real page-turner with action aplenty but also depth and heart. Lily Wong makes a vividly intriguing heroine with some serious ninja skills. Charlie Fox would team up with her in a heartbeat.” – Zoë Sharp, author of the CHARLIE FOX THRILLER SERIES
“You’ve never read anything like THE NINJA DAUGHTER before. And the author, Tori Eldridge, is more than qualified to tell the story. A long-time practitioner of martial arts herself, she brings credibility and accuracy to the character of Lily – with just enough artistic license to keep things fun and rollicking. If you like adventure, martial arts, and captivating heroines, THE NINJA DAUGHTER is for you! – Jack Hoban, Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the U.S. Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP) and 10th degree black belt in Ninjutsu.

You’ll want this ninja on your side.” – International Bestseller K.J. Howe, author of THE FREEDOM BROKER and SKYJACK
“Tori Eldridge is a natural storyteller whose work is beautifully written and heartbreakingly intense. Her debut novel, THE NINJA DAUGHTER, is a hard-hitting story so gritty and real you feel it in your teeth.” – Pam Stack, Executive Producer of Authors on the Air Global Radio Network
