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 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
