Be taken on a wild ride of an intense thriller filled vigilante justice and kick-ass action!


After her sister is raped and murdered, Lily Wong dedicates her life and ninja skills to the protection of women. But her mission is complicated. Not only does she live above the Chinese restaurant owned by her Norwegian father and inspired by the recipes of her Chinese mother, but she has to hide her true self from her Hong Kong tiger mom who is already disappointed in her daughter’s less than feminine ways, and who would be horrified to know what she had become.

But when a woman and her son she escorted safely to an abused women’s shelter return home to dangerous consequences, Lily is forced to not only confront her family and her past, but team up with a mysterious—and very lethal—stranger to rescue them.


“Eldridge’s debut thriller introduces readers to a heroine for the #MeToo era and deftly explores the dangers of Lily’s avocation, the challenges of familial relationships, and the need to continue to fight the abuse and exploitation of others.”
―Library Journal (Starred Review) and Debut of the Month
“Eldridge expertly mines both domestic suspense and action thriller.”
―Publishers Weekly
“If you love a heroine who’s tough, brilliant, and never runs from a fight, look no further. Tori Eldridge introduces the warrior-sleuth you’ll want fighting by your side.”
―Tess Gerritsen, NYT bestselling author of THE SHAPE OF NIGHT
“THE NINJA DAUGHTER is a remarkably fresh, intense thriller, and Lily Wong is one hell of a new hero. Tori Eldridge is redefining the genre.”
―J.T. Ellison, NYT bestselling author of TEAR ME APART
