DEADLY DIAMOND by D. J. Martin The Special Investigator team of Matt Diamond and Natasha Cutter had returned to their new office in Beverly Hills, California, and were going over a large list of potential clients when one caught their eye. They had received a call from Ms. Gloria Goldstein regarding the murder of her parents and the theft of a large twenty-carat light pink diamond from their jewelry store. The police had been of little help, and she was most anxious for them to investigate the tragedy. Although events began in Beverly Hills, the location quickly changed to Johannesburg, South Africa, which meant that the globe-traveling team would again return to the country where they had worked in their previous case. The hunt for the thieves and murderers had to begin at the original source, the antiques studio of Martin Clause in Johannesburg. He was the first to purchase what he named the Empress Diamond for $500,000, then sold it to the Goldsteins for a solid $1,000,000 a few days later. The Empress, from Tanzania, was the largest light pink diamond ever found. The Empress Diamond would be worth millions more if it could reach the United States. The Goldsteins provided the way to get the precious stone to the American market. Three former American Special Forces veterans also entered into pursuit of the Empress, as well as a sinister figure with the code name The Red Fox, who would pay any price to obtain the Empress for billionaire Sir Fredrick Marsh. Marsh wanted to give it to his wife as a birthday gift. It was up to Matt Diamond and Natasha Cutter to follow the trail of the Deadly Diamond, a trail that would result in more deaths and a stone that many believed was cursed. Intrigue and suspense – who has the Empress now? – make this an exciting read, and the ending will surprise the reader with its strange twist of fate.
