The events in Israel did unfold very quickly and provided an interesting look at the diamond trade, especially how the countries of Africa play into it - both those that are well known for being part of the industry and those whose potential have not quite been tapped into as of when the book was written in the early 90s.
Peter and Marge have a new position in homicide under a lieutenant who plays strictly by the book. I have been in a reading funk and not sure what the problem is.

I have no issue whatsoever with lengthy books with the level of detail and scope that justifies their length The Golden Notebook and Dune are both favorites of mine. A diamond dealer and his entire family have mysteriously disappeared from their sprawling Las Angeles manor, leaving the estate undisturbed and their valuables untouched.
Another great read by Faye Kellerman, so many characters to learn about, plus the diamond industry and of course Judaism. I am determined to keep going.
