It is over a year since the events in New York and it
appears that the relationship between detectives
Palestinian-American Ben Kamal and Israeli Danielle Barnea
is at an end. He is returning to America while she tries
to reconcile with the National Police. On an undercover
assignment for her old boss, a trap is sprung and Danielle
is arrested supposedly for killing her immediate supervisor.
When Ben hears about this, he helps her escape from jail.
The pair learns that African diamonds are exchanged for
weapons using corrupt Israeli officers as well as
Palestinians and the Internet. The United Revolutionary
Front in Sierra Leone led by the fanatical Latisse Matabu
is determined to unleash weapons of mass destruction on
their own people and the United States unless the
Palestinian and the Israeli can work together to stop her.
Jon Land authors a timely and believable political thriller
that reflects the complexities of the global social and
military infrastructure. His characters reflect the times
and culture that they live in so when they intermingle,
there is always a lot of action. BLOOD DIAMONDS is one of
the author's best works to date and it will be interesting
to see what will happen to Ben and Danielle in the next
installment of the series.
