Spanning continents and centuries, combining history, political intrigue, crime and passion, it is a story of human fascination for timeless diamonds, while the lives around them are rendered transient. Dharwadker writes a fast-paced narrative with verve and wit.

An excellent novel of intrigue and suspense, crossing continents, eras, and cultures. Dharwadker has also shown how the fascinating history of identification is woven into the fabric of our lives… A cracking read.

An international murder mystery rolled in the diamond industry intrigue against the backdrop of sweeping antiquity, dating back to thousands of years in India to the present day South Africa, in a seamless mosaic of graphic accounts! I’m stunned by Dharwadker’s mastery of Indian mythology and European history. A page-turner for sure.
