A life-threatening health scare prompted Ian Hamilton to write his first in the series of Ava Lee novels. Just two days out of hospital, Ian sat down at his computer and completed the first novel a few short weeks later. Ian has been a journalist for numerous newspapers and magazines. His work internationally as a diplomat and businessman have been important influences on his writing. Within eight months, Ian had completed four books. He is now working on the seventh novel. Hamilton is the winner of the 2012 Arthur Ellis award for Best First Crime novel.
