Review Text

. . . and good fortune will come your way. One of three never-apprehended cracksmen coming out of retirement to pull off the biggest jewel robbery in history is Johnny Rhodes, a London antique dealer who finally succumbs to a relapse of "diamond fever" (it's "incurable"). Operation Solitaire involves heisting a $40 million consignment of ice before it reaches its sorting house in Antwerp. Albeit a splendidly ingenious crime, it still manages to draw the attention of Rhodes' French-Canadian fiancee, an alcoholic Diamond Club security officer, and a retiring Chief Detective Inspector at Scotland Yard. The author of The Yermakov Transfer serves up a polished crystallized carbon caper with enough adamantine luster to catch your eye. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
