My favorite female protagonist is back in action. Flame-haired investigative reporter Kate Conway returns in THE DEADLY BUDDHA. And my readers have fallen for her, head over Kindles.
“Talk about new age heroines,” wrote one reviewer. “Kate is a natural blend of intellect, power, determination and, by the way, beauty and a real healthy sexuality. She represents the young women of today who are different, bright, well-educated and focused on following their dream, which isn't having babies, playing bridge with the girls and joining the right country club. I want to see more of Kate Conway as Mr. Ong develops her character and her next adventure.”
In THE DEADLY BUDDHA Kate gets trapped into writing the life-story of an Oscar-winning Welsh heart-throb. As much as she hates the Hollywood scene, she can’t avoid falling in love with the guy—despite discovering the ghastly truth about his conniving mother and her diabolical lover in their search for The Golden Buddha of Anyang.
This second volume in the Kate Conway trilogy features museums filled with intrigue, swimming pools filled with temptation, a Welsh city filled with witnesses that keep disappearing, helicopter rides that discharge passengers prematurely—and a 16-year-old Chinese charmer named Zookie, whose sensual body holds the secret of where the billion-dollar Buddha is buried.
But above all THE DEADLY BUDDHA features a female protagonist who makes her readers sit up and take notice while making her author proud—proud of having created a character that is right for the times.
