A little backstory about the book
The idea for the book was inspired by an interview I did many years ago with Gavin de Becker (GDBA), now the unparalleled leader in protecting at-risk people, from Hollywood stars to oil executives to public figures like Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos.
I’d been toying with the Hope Diamond character over the years, and the novel finally came to fruition during the pandemic. It’s a light crime mystery, set in the Navajo Nation, and splashed with humor and romance.
Quote about DIAMOND IN THE DESERT
Diamond in the Desert reminds me of Agatha Christie’s best novels featuring isolated settings and a quirky cast of characters, one of whom is murdered and another is the murderer. The plot takes unexpected twists and turns until the very end when Hope Diamond, intrepid sleuth and security expert extraordinaire, straightens everything out. In the meantime, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. This is a smash debut mystery.
