Did you ever have one of those days? You know the kind when nothing seems to go right?
Richie's girlfriend suggests a romantic getaway, promising him a weekend he will never forget. So why can't he remember what happened when he finds her lifeless body on the beach?
Richie is fairly certain he didn't kill his girlfriend, but his memory is hazy. One thing, however, is clear. When Lorraine's body is found, he's going to be the prime suspect in a murder investigation.
If her body is found.
Disposing of the body turns out to be harder than Richie could have imagined. Losing it, however, is easy.
Did you ever have one of those days? And we haven't even gotten to the bad part yet.

Jeff has written a great-planned, well-thought out novel. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
I found myself engrossed in the characters while I rooted for and against each one in turn.
I'm glad to say I've heard my first Audio book and proud to say it was Death and White Diamonds.

This is one of the best books with some of the nastiest main characters I’ve read in a long time. If you are looking for sympathetic characters, don’t look here! But the author tells the story from both sides, the criminals (and there a whole slew of them) and the police, and never misses a step. Watching the police untangle this snarl was the most enjoyable part of this book for me. The writing is very good, with the occasional stunning image or turn of phrase, and the characters are excellently developed, and stay true to type (the main character is essentially one of the most irresponsible, self-indulgent, self-absorbed characters who have ever had temporary residence in my mind, and when I finished the book, I felt like I needed a thorough mind cleansing. In other words, whatever you think of the characters, the author presented them in ways that worked, if only (thank all that’s wonderful) in fiction.
The narrator has a very pleasing reading voice, and gave a professional performance, though there were a few mispronunciations and at least one repeated phrase, so I hope that this fine small press gives more attention to the technical aspects of narration.
I received this book in exchange for this unbiased review via the kind courtesy of the publisher.
