Overview
Clarissa Stanford is distraught over her boyfriend's unsolved murder, but intuitively knows who killed him. Fear and denial plunge her into despair and paranoia, but not before penning a confession letter to best friend Talya Solomon. Clarissa's duplicity of not revealing the acquisition of a significant red diamond to her shady Russian boss has her fleeing for her life. After Talya learns the truth, the Russian-born gemologist invents a ruse involving Iwan Kowalski, an 87-year-old Polish industrialist whose diamond collection rivals the world's best. The cohorts arrange a private auction in Zürich using Kowalski's well-known, highly prized green diamond as bait to lure the killer into their lair. The Red Diamond takes you on a thrilling international chase from the shores of Malibu through the hills of Aspen, to the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich, and finally to a Moscow penthouse office suite with state-of-the-art security. On the way, Talya must outwit police, Russian mafia bodyguards, Interpol agents, and her overprotective father, an ex-Mossad agent. Strength, guile, and ingenuity will not let her be thwarted.
