Overview

Stopping a holdup at a convenience store, rescuing hostages from a bank robbery, saving a dog from a burning building, and bringing in a fugitive from justice are all in a day's work for Federal Agent Zach Taylor-until a chance encounter with his former girlfriend, Erin McShane, a television journalist hot on the trail of a popular Congressman with ties to organized crime, stirs up feelings he thought were long gone. Meanwhile, a bag of rare blue diamonds stolen from Greek Jews during the Holocaust holds the key to bringing down a modern day Miami crime lord selling high-tech weapons to terrorists. Zach goes undercover when a key Government witness is murdered and his partner seriously wounded, teaming up with his former prisoner, Matt Crawford, and a mysterious, beautiful diamond dealer known only as "Malone." Using the blue diamonds as bait, Zach must penetrate the Don's inner circle, gather evidence, and re-establish the government's case.

    Blue Diamonds is an excellent book from a new author

    Author Spencer Dane doesn't waste any time getting the plot rolling in Blue Diamonds. A few pages in and there's already a body count. Zachary Taylor, the protagonist, is a complicated hero who would rather spend a quiet evening listening to classical music than participate in a shoot out. Naturally, this fast-paced story doesn't allow Zach his wish. Blue Diamonds follows the trail of a dozen rare diamonds stolen from Greek Jews during the Holocaust. The diamonds weave their way around Zach, a powerful mafia don, a corrupt Congressman, a beautiful and mysterious diamond broker, and Zach's former girlfriend--an investigative reporter who will do almost anything to get her story, maybe even endanger Zach! It's a great story with plenty of action, intrigue and unexpected plot twists. You can tell Dane did his homework on this book. When Zach calls on his military or police training, you can bet that it's 100% correct. Dane gives you accurate information about weapons and tactics without bogging the story down with unnecessary details. The characters are well drawn and avoid the clichés so common in this genre. Zach, while being a highly-trained and very lethal man, is deeply religious and truly doesn't like to kill. At one point in the book, he notices that a dead hit man he shot is Catholic and he calls in a priest to perform last rites. The book is tightly plotted. Besides Zach and his partner Sabrina, it's hard to tell the complete agendas of the other major characters. And just when you think you've got it figured out, the plot throws you another curve ball. In summary, the book is well written. It's a fun read with lots of good characters and an engaging plot. It was hard not to finish it in one sitting.
