The Hostage Diamond
Author: David Leadbeater
Format: Kindle Edition
A priceless diamond with an ancient history. A lethal chase. An impossible resolution. ..When a gang of rogue CIA agents steal a long-lost, ancient diamond with extraordinary ties to history, the relic hunters are drafted in to hunt them down. Forced to work with a new, threatening CIA hitman - named Kenny Pang - they start the dangerous and arduous process of tracking both the agents and the diamond.
From Luxembourg to the French Alps and through Paris they follow elusive, hard-won clues, coming up against carefully placed obstacles along the way. It becomes clear that someone with high capabilities has helped cover the agents' tracks, someone who calls themselves The Teacher.
With time running out until the diamond is lost forever to an anonymous collector, the original, violent owner running her own recovery mission, and Pang's secret agenda emerging, the relic hunters come to terms with a stunning realisation - that the rogue group are what they aspire to be - free of the CIA - even as they are forced to close in for the final, deadly takedown.
