Yvonne Crowe pulls no punches as she delves into the lives of the disaffected who are the collateral damage of this illicit industry and mankind's inhumanity to mankind in their lust for power and greed. I believe she is a new author to watch out for - Mark Nemcoff author of Fatal Sunset
I think the biggest pull of this book, its main selling point, is the history of the blood diamonds. I was left with one thought after I finished reading this novel - as long as there are wars in the lands rich with diamonds, there are going to be diamonds covered in blood. The book is a good, informative read.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A good strong political thriller I was pleased to see another book released by this author, as I am enjoying her works. I particularly like suspense thrillers and found Blood Diamonds Conspiracy a story that moved at a good fast pace and held my interest to the very end. The characters are believable and what makes it more interesting is that it is a book of our times which is obviously meant to make us think about the world we live in. This is a story of a jealous and possessive man who has a need for revenge and in doing so endangers not only his ex wife's life but that of a group of unsavory characters with whom he is involved in the illegal trafficking of blood diamonds. The story rockets across continents and the devastation left in the wake of this illicit practice which touches many lives. It makes you think about our own lives over which we have control and those in other countries who have none at all. What interests me about Yvonne Crowe is her ability to write in different genres. I'll certainly be looking out for her next book which according to her website is due out shortly.
