Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Meet my mom, the porn star. When Greg Boston opts out of marriage, his schoolteacher wife Diane and teenaged son David downsize to a smaller apartment. Unfortunately, when unpacking their things, David and a friend find XXX-rated porn tapes, grainy old black and-white stuff featuring one Lucy Lee, who looks a lot like a younger Diane. Also unfortunately, David's friend tells his dad, who tells the school board, who fire Diane. The press goes wild; Greg sues for custody of David; and California porn impresario Aaron Valentine and his muscle Emo Tuff hear all about it and come hunting Diane, the former star who left their employ years ago with a bagful of their high-quality diamonds. The ensuing casualties include Greg, a porn star turned entrepreneur, and two diamond-merchant brothers, one in New York, one in Chicago. A 1980 lesbian love affair comes to light along with a slaughter in a Van Nuys warehouse. Nick Belgrad, a former Israeli supersleuth, steps in to avenge the brothers. Drugs, torture, abuse and more death follow, to the glee of tabloid reporter Darren Marshall. And there'll be a twist or two before Diane puts the past behind her and begins anew with David and Nick. Can you imagine a nun advocating a withdrawal of life support? Newcomer Benson can, and that's the least of his inanities. Skippable and then some.
Booklist Magazine
"Benson… proves here that he is equally adept at more realistic thrillers. This ever-more-intricate story (which involves a two-decade-old murder and several buried secrets) may remind some readers of the novels of James Grippando… The relationship between David and his mother, Diane (aka Lucy Luv), is key to the drama, and Benson layers enough twists and turns to keep mother and son, not to mention the reader, searching desperately for the truth."
Chicago Sun-Times
"Sweetie's Diamonds is a gem!"
J. A. Konrath
"Plays out like a Hitchcock film. These Diamonds are priceless!"
Parnell Hall
"A pulse-pounding edge-of-your-seat thriller with more twists and turns than a roller coaster."
The Strand Magazine
"A gem of a thriller one would have expected to come from the pen of someone like James Patterson."
