Dear Reader,

Sometimes, if you're very lucky, you can go home again. An earlier version of this book was titled The Diamond Tiger and came out in 1993 under the name Ann Maxwell. When my present publisher offered me the opportunity of going back to the novel under the name Elizabeth Lowell, I admit that I hesitated. In the years since first publication, the diamond trade ha

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.

This is not a recent book, but is full of action and a hero and heroine that can do more (and survive more) than highly trained Navy Seals. Some of the predicaments and the characters' responses were a bit over the top. But it was a good, fast read.

Elizabeth Lowell - one of my favorite authors - never disappoints.
Very good....hard to put down...
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.
