A day of reckoning—both personal and professional—is at hand for Detective Inspector Stewart White in the third installment of the D.I. White Mysteries.

While White’s team closes in on an elusive heroin smuggling operation, a prominent television executive reports that her twin teenage daughters have been abducted. The high-profile case is assigned to White, who must now divide his attention between the kidnapping and the heroin sting operation.

That leaves little time to console his one-time lover, Connie Cleghorn, when she returns to the UK to take her mentally ill brother back to Florida for treatment. In stark contrast, his father is diving deeper into a heady love affair of his own—forcing White to consider whether his inability to maintain a lasting relationship is due to his job or to his own shortcomings.

The two cases—and relationships—threaten to spiral out of control towards conclusions that are sure to surprise.

“Detective Inspector Stewart White  is an awesome character,  portrayed three-dimensionally.  A brilliant series to read again. Highly recommended.” — My Train of Thoughts On... Book Review Blog

A founding member of the international Historical Novel Society, Mr. Coles is proud to have attended workshops run by U.K. writers Terry Pratchett and David Gemmel.

When a courier for the powerful crime family descended from Niccolò Machiavelli realizes he’s being followed by a rival family assassin, he takes a detour through the English countryside to shake his pursuer. He manages to hide his precious cargo—a fortune in blood diamonds from Sierra Leone—before his pursuer collides with an English family on a holiday drive.

The courier drowns in a swollen river; the mother and son die in the crash. The father is emotionally devastated, and retires in despair from his MI5 cipher career.

Five years later, the head of the Machiavelli crime family, Alberto Lorente, is still in pursuit of his missing diamonds and is ready to launch an ambitious scheme to recover them. What follows is a twisted trail of murder, kidnapping and layers upon layers of subterfuge.

The British Security Services are seriously compromised, but no one knows how or by whom. And suddenly, our former MI5 cipher expert is on everyone’s shopping list.

“The mystery of who REALLY are the movers and shakers at work behind the scenes only comes together in the final pages. The author’s subtle—but riveting—approach to international crime fiction vs. the usual adrenaline-fueled race of the thriller genre makes this impossible to put down.” —Adele Abbot, author, Of Machines & Magics

“If you enjoy mystery and a clever story told through well-crafted dialog played out by a memorable cast of characters, you’ll enjoy The Diamond Seekers. There is room for more and I hope Coles and Everett hook us into a sequel that picks up where The Diamond Seekers left off.” — Greg Lamb, Author, The People In Between: A Cyprus Odyssey
