A thriller that ranges from Cameroon to the Congo and South Africa, by way of the sea. This book weaves themes of racism, exploitation and transnational crime into its rags-to-riches yarn about an alchemist-like quest to create the world's biggest diamond from illegally mined materials.
Author Robert Ogden
An African adventure which features characters as diverse as a son of apartheid, a village girl from Cameroon, her mixed race son, a Texan boat captain and his mixed crew of African misfits. Their quest is to mine illegal substances from war-torn Congo but their result, with the help of a convicted Welsh physicist and an ancient diamond expert, is to produce a diamond the size of the Koh i Nor.
