About the Book

An incredible treasure, five and a half tons of uncut emeralds and rubies, is sitting in Geneva, on sale at a bargain price. But of course there’s a catch; the sellers are rulers of various African countries who want both to unload their loot in secret and at the same time prevent a powerful cartel from getting its hands on the hoard and changing the political map of the continent. Into this morass of danger and treachery steps Christopher Rose, an American living in Greece and desperately down on his luck. One of the most formidable perils Christopher faces is the beautiful woman who seduces him and then literally gives him the keys to a kingdom. But the greatest danger of all, he finally realizes, is inside him.
