Publisher's Summary

True story of survival, lust, greed, and death. The true story of Gil Devos's 40-year career as a buyer of diamonds from the miners who actually flush and force the stones out of the jungles of Guyana, Venezuela, and Central African mines.

Gil faces danger, risk, and repeated opportunities where obscene wealth and certain death are an equal and certain probability. Gil was originally trained as a mercenary soldier of fortune in Brussels, Belgium, but his career path quickly changed when Gil walked into the mysterious world of the diamond merchants in Antwerp and became seduced by the wealth, lust, and debauchery that follows those who fall in love with the stones and the risky life of a rough diamond buyer. In Gil's own words, "The naturally occurring lust that a man feels for a beautiful woman is magnified a thousand times by the clarity, cut and brilliance of a diamond. The pursuit of both makes for a rewarding and fulfilling life."
