The Lioness is the Hunter - Loren D. Estleman
Detroit entrepreneur Carl Fannon hires Walker to trace Emil Haas, his
partner, whose sudden disappearance has jeopardized their firm’s plans
to purchase the historic Sentinel Building. Almost immediately, the
missing man shows up and asks the detective to meet him in the empty
Sentinel to discuss a top-secret concern. Walker complies, only to find
not Haas, but Fannon’s suffocated corpse locked in a basement vault.
Gwendolyn Haas, the partner’s adult daughter, enters the picture, the
client number rises to three, including one missing and one murdered.
But the worst is yet to come: Emil Haas’s “concern” is that Fannon’s
been buying up depressed real estate on behalf of Charlotte Sing, the
international fugitive Walker knows only too well as Madam Sing. Madam
Sing is believed to have been executed in Asia for capital crimes
without number, but instead may be engaged in rebuilding her fortune to
relaunch her assault on civilization.

MY THOUGHTS: When I first started reading this book I thought it was set during the 30's or 40's. The writing reminds me of the old detective books from the 60's. But then they started talking on cell phones and using computers. Really good stand alone book. But this is another series I'm going to have to put on my list of books to read. I give this book 5.....
This book is for 4 of my reading challenges......
