Dear Reader,

Sometimes, if you're very lucky, you cango home again. An earlier version of thisbook was titled The Diamond Tiger andcame out in 1993 under the nameAnn Maxwell. When my present publisheroffered me the opportunity of going back tothe novel under the name Elizabeth Lowell,I admit that I hesitated. In the years sincefirst publication, the diamond trade haschanged...more

The men who control the diamond world want to make sure the mine i...more
This book is set in Western Australia, in a landscape that is altogether foreign and fascinating, described with intimacy by the author, as if she’d lived there for years. Her bio says she lives in Seattle, so I don’t know if I can credit that to her imagination, her research or her earlier years. Either way, it’s a helluva place and makes a great setting for a story of the brutality of the diamond business in the 1980s. The main characters are sympathetic, interesting, conflicted, believable.

When I picked this book up, I didn't know that it was a re-release of The Diamon Tiger that she wrote under the pen name of Ann Maxwell. But I haven't read any of her books she has wrote under a different name, so that's ok. I enjoyed the book, but I don't think that it is has good has her newer stuff. I love the Donavon series, and this one book just didn't measure up to those. It still a good read tho.
This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that. Always in depth characters that anyone can identify with on some level.
This is more a 2.5-3 star. I LOVE Elizabeth Lowell, but this just didn't capture my interest like her books normally do.
Decent plot, sightly predictable, and a feitsty heroine. I learned a lot about diamonds and the diamond industry.
Pure trash. Loaded with enough purple prose to positively please Prince.
A classic suspense-driven Lowell novel. Well worth the time to read.
Good book. Good romance. Would definitely recommend it to others.
As usual, Lowell gives a good story and a great mystery
Good, classic Lowell read.
