Christmas gift to Angie is a broach that belong to Paavo's Mother. While Angie was cleaning; the cameo portion falls. She takes to a jeweler for repair. There she learns that it is Russian & the diamonds real. As Paavo's past starts to unravel their characters grow. The ending is unusual. All of this series are great; this one the best.
This was the best Angie Amalfi mystery I've read so far! I really enjoyed the story and getting to learn more of Paavo's history. I did find that the story was kind of complicated and there were a lot of characters to keep track of but I still found it really enjoyable.
