"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

"Eldridge’s series just keeps getting better. While readers can enjoy this book without having read the first two, a series highlight is Lily’s evolution and the complexity and growth of her relationships. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy strong heroines forging their own paths." ―Library Journal (Starred Review)

"Lily Wong is back and she's as irresistible as ever! Loyal, smart, tough as nails, she's all the things you'd want in a modern-day ninja. In THE NINJA BETRAYED, Eldridge pits our Lily against a Hong Kong Triad amid an atmosphere of civil unrest. The danger's real, but a ninja never shirks her duty. Brava for BETRAYED. It's tight, lean, action-packed storytelling with a beating heart at its center. You'll root for Lily. You'll also wish you had her with you when you fight the mall crowds at Christmastime. Can't wait for the next installment."
―Tracy Clark, multi-nominated Anthony, Shamus, and Lefty Award finalist and winner of the 2020 Sue Grafton Memorial Award for the Cass Raines Chicago Mystery Series

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.

Lily’s mother has been summoned by her grandfather, Gung-Gung to attend an emergency board meeting, and Lily is happy to take her father’s place for exotic travel, family reunions, and romantic dates with her new boyfriend, Daniel Kwok, who's there for business. Lily and her mother stay at her grandparents' hillside home on Hong Kong Island, but tension between Gung-Gung and Ma makes it hard to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, especially with the city in turmoil. Gung-Gung won’t say anything about the meeting and Ma is worried that her career is in jeopardy. Meanwhile, the teenage daughter of Gung-Gung's driver is pulled into the dangerous riots.

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?
