This author will definitely take you for a ride that is entertaining to say the least. Be prepared to use your five senses, this author will have you feeling the sand behind your knees, smelling the Turkish tobacco in a cafe, etc etc. Not only is the story intriguing, the reader can feel the scenes through his written words.

The story is detailed and fascinating as it combines two separate worlds which happen to be on different continents. The different story lines appear to be independent but the author weaves them together masterfully.

In addition to a good suspense story, the reader also gets the inside on the world diamond business.

Good Read I Recommended it to friends.

Review by: Rachel Cotterill on Sep. 09, 2011 :
With a setting split between a US courtroom battle and a South African diamond mine, as this book starts out it isn't quite clear how the disparate storylines will come together. A lot of characters are introduced at almost dizzying speed, while conversely there are several passages simply laying out facts, whether about the diamond industry or the legal process. This is an odd combination, but somehow it just works, balancing out as a quick read with a very detailed setting.

One minor niggle is that the chapter headings read like the kind of notes an author might make to describe the contents to himself;
as such, there were spoilers there that I would have preferred not to read. I tried to skip over them towards the end, but that's tricky to accomplish! However it didn't stop me from enjoying the book, and I definitely want to see more from this author.
