It wasn't too bad. It was a little hard to get into the characters, but that is possibly because I started the series in the middle? Pretty entertaining, but nothing that stood out.

I recently met a refugee from Sierra leone, so I was interested in reading this book. It is fiction and not at all what I expected. That sadi, if you like action packed thrillers, this is a decent one, along the lines of Robert Ludlum. It is not really about Sierra , but does give you little idea of what has gone on there. I think I will a different book to learn about Sierra leone. This book has some language, and of course violence.

Blood Diamonds find Ben and Danielle fighting against a group that is purchasing Blood Diamonds with the intent to fund war against Israel and the U.S.

The weapon of choice is 'black death' which has the ability to kill large numbers of people quickly.

The books leaves us hanging as to what choices Ben and Danielle will make regarding each other and where to live.

While Danielle is following a courier of blood diamonds from Sierra Leone to Israel, Ben is arresting a Russian delivering arms to Palestine. Soon it is learned that the cases are connected, leading Ben and Danielle all over the world chasing down leads. They discover a Black Death that a rebel leader in Sierra Leone is about to deliver to the USA. The race is on to stop it.

A comprehensive knowledge of the diamond trade underground and the civil war knowledge in Sierre Leone was very detailed. A good book. In the end though I would have love to know what kind of illness the Dragon had.
