    A diamond dealer and his entire family have mysteriously disappeared from their sprawling Las Angeles manor, leaving the estate undisturbed and their valuables untouched. Investigating detective Decker is stumped - faced with a perplexing case riddled with dead ends. Then a second dealer is found murdered in Manhatten, catapulting Decker and his wife, Rina, into a heartstopping maze of murder and intrigue that spans the globe... only to touch down dangerously in their own backyard.

    Story

    Because it is very thin... the plot is thin, the characters are thin, the police procedures are questionable at best. A good tutorial on Judaism, though. Imagine a plot where a family is missing and no hint of foul play -- Decker and his partner decide to go into the LA foothills and happen to stumble (in the rain, even) on two buried bodies. Come on! Even if the foothills were only 2 or 3 acres this is improbable. Then the scene shifts to Israel (again, thin) and Decker saves that country from bombs and financial chaos. I have never imagined Jonathon Kellerman's character Milo Sturgis as being thin but this authors interjection of Sturgis into this story was thin!!! Obviously, I do not recommend Faye Kellerman's stuff.

    Stone Barrington is enjoying his usual dinner at Elaine's when his boss at Woodman & Weld, the law firm where Stone is "of counsel," walks in, sits down, and hands Stone a check for one million dollars. It seems Stone's undercover dealings with MI6 have brought in a big new client for the firm, and they're willing to pay Stone a huge bonus and make him a partner. But almost as soon as he's taken the deal, Stone gets wind of an impending scandal that might torpedo his big promotion.

    The story kept me on the edge of my seat. Been a Stuart Woods fan for a long time -- this was the best.

    Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in literary history. For the first time since the death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a new Holmes story has been sanctioned by his estate, whetting the appetites of fans everywhere. Information about the book will be revealed as deliberately as Holmes himself would unravel a knotty case, but bestselling novelist and Holmes expert Anthony Horowitz is sure to bring a compelling, atmospheric story to life.

    As a Sherlock Holmes fan for almost a half century, I have to say that this is as good as any story Conan Doyle told -- BRAVO!!
