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 th [...]
Received this copy free in return for review to be posted shortly A perfectly readable book that I can see how would appeal to the masses, but for myself therewas too much of an equal split between the story lines I prefer a singleton or group of characters with which to associate and follow Here the story dipped between the characters and didn t settle on one for long enough in any one burst so I didn t find myself becoming attached to any particular person.There s also a lot of detail in the b [...]
This seems at first to be two separate stories Criminal attorney and still grieving widow Megan takes on a former client against a second sexual harassment charge As she delves into the case, she begins to believe he s guilty.In South Africa, a mine worker smuggling a large diamond out is caught, tortured and killed We aren t told why, but one of his coworkers is actually a spy for a US agency.When it turns out Megan s client allegedly gave several of his girl friends jewelry, we begin to suspec [...]
I had trouble getting through this book in the beginning with several seemingly unrelated plot lines However, as the book moved along, the author did a great job of intertwining the plots with an exciting ending that made it hard to put the book down It was a good suspense novel in which I knew who the bad guys were throughout, but it still had suspense nonetheless I would recommend this book to others who like suspense novels.
There are two very different story lines in this book and they barely come together at the end One story involves the owners of diamond mines in Africa while the other is about Megan Davis, a lawyer in Lawrence, Kansas There is just too much information about how diamonds are formed, mined and sold On top of that, the writing is often overdone and takes away from the suspense.
Part of this story is set in a US courtroom and part of this story is about a diamond mining company a glass house I learned about diamonds than I ever thought I would know A lot of research here
An intriguing action thriller which gradually makes the connection between a rather unpleasant businessman in the USA and a diamond mine in South Africa.
Had a good story but the flow of the book was all wrong and way to much non fiction info mixed with a fiction book.
Seemed like a made for TV movie you would see on TNT dramatic voice over In a small courtroom thousands of miles away, who knew conflict diamonds would have such an effect
One of those books that I read just because I hate to stop them once I start I knew 25% in that I should stop, I wish I would have.
