Iron Orchid

4th in the Orchid series, this one is somewhat better than the other three, at least she's a bit more involved and not constantly handing over her investigation to the FBI. But the other characters, all the men got more attention than poor Holly, she keeps playing second banana to even the (male) villain so I give up on this author, I've had enough of his treating women like second class citizens.

This one again gives over the main action to someone else, someone male-gendered. This time it's Holly's father which makes it slightly more interesting as he's a good character but still, this author really has a thing about not letting women be in control. And then throwing in his hero from another series just adds to the things-not-to-like.
