Annja, in the process of helping out a Chinese man find his long dead relative, stumbles onto a secret that both Garin and Leroux want. And there is a whole gang of Chinese triads under the direction of a ruthless business man involved as well.
A lost city in the desert, traps and lots of action.
This was a lot of fun. Annja gets almost killed in California while looking for a corpse and that ends up with her teaming backup with her ersatz mentor Leroux and going against Garin, Leroux’s former pupil.
And there is a sub-plot about some girl assassin, but besides literally providing a piece of a puzzle, she wasn’t an integral part of the story.
But we get a booby-trapped city under the desert! That is what made me bump this up half a star. Swords, darts, spears, falling floors, a locked room with a descending ceiling, it was ALL good.
The magical item this time was some doodad that Leroux thought was terrible, so he and Garin join up to destroy it.
Overall, a good fun read. No complaints from me this time 🙂
